Candide CT 4.0
$949 D: 140-118-134mm R: 23m
With a balsa, poplar, and flax core and a tiny bit of camber, the 4.0 is incredibly lightweight and nimble, perfect for boosting all around the mountain. This combination may be lacking in the way of durability and strength, but Faction incorporates Titanal underfoot for some added stiffness and binding retention. Honestly though, you’re not going to be thinking about the durability of the ski when you’re popping from one feature to the next in fresh snow, where this ski truly excels. Just don’t find any hidden treasures.
