I'm looking to buy new all mountain-park skis. I'm trying to decide between the Candide 1.0 or the 2.0 skis.
I'm ~145lbs and 5'6 - primarily ripping resorts, riding switch, doing butters and small spins on whatever natural obstacles I find. I do occasionally hit the park but only for the kickers, I do not ride rails at all.
So the obvious choice should be the 2.0s. But I'm having a hard time convincing myself of this when I look at the dimensions of the skis. To me 90 under foot is all mountain and 102 is more or less powder especially considering I'm not the biggest guy.
Another thing I find a bit weird is how the smaller versions are not scaled at all, they kept the tip-waist-tail measurements the same. This means you get a distorted, and very short sidecut in the smaller sizes. So you end up with turn radius of 15m and 102mm width for the 172, which seems really extreme to me.
Last, I havenít been able to find any information about have much difference there is between the two skies besides the dimensions. Factions homepage have no information about the flex pattern of the skies.
Hope you guys can help me decide. If you have any thoughts let me hear them!
