MartianManYeah the candide 1.0 would be perfect. Mid-stiff flex, but great for learning tricks if you don't start off skiing like candide ;). It feels almost impossibly light as well, which is really a huge plus.
MLJHow durable are they? Im worried that they might fall apart quickly seeing as how light they are.
MLJSweet, thanks dude! Ive got a website that sells em for 260$ new, so I might go with that. The kennedy is around 80$ cheaper though, do you know if they are any worse or just different graphics?
+K for helping also.
Emma_WatsonI have been riding the AR7 for two years now and they are bomb proof. Really good ski to bring to jumps and they are light enough for rails.
From my experience, the AR7 is a stiff ski.
MartianManThe Kennedy is pretty much the same ski, it uses the poplar/birch core instead of the Superlight, and then has cap contraction instead of a full sidewall. The 1.0 will be lighter and more torsionally stiff (which is side to side flex, not longitudinally stiff), meaning it will be more stable as well. They are both great skis, just the 1.0 is made with better quality materials.
And no problem, feel free to ask me anymore questions.
MLJSweet thanks! How do they fare outside of the park ie hardpack/low pow? not really essential but it would be nice to have a good pair of skis for charging, cause my skis now are pretty buttery and thus I can't go too fast and stay stable with them.
