Technical info:
The Candide 1.0 park ski has a light sandwich construction. The skis are not symmetrical, and they have neither taper nor rocker. Relatively soft tips.

On snow:
Light skis that are easy to maneuver, which function well on most surfaces. They are stable and function best when they are put to the test. After all, this is Faction´s pro model. They comes alive at speed and for big jumps, but are a bit boring when the action slows down.

Pros:
Presterer jevn i hele parken, og takler fart og kompressjon godt. Lette nok på foten, uten at det går på bekostning av stabilitet.

Cons:
En ski som byr på lite til lek i forhold til sine konkurrenter.
