Since day one, working with Candide has been a collaboration - we started with a blank piece of paper and worked with him to create his ideal ski… ok, skis. We looked at what was out there and what we could do to make a better product. Year on year, like Candide himself, we strive to be ahead of the game using the most innovative technology to make the highest quality product possible. The skis he skis on, straight out of the box.
