.lenconThe blends are not a symmetrical ski.
GooskinOh really? I thought they were. My mistake
BearGrillsIt all depends on the mounting of the binding. I've ridden 2.0s with true center, freestyle recommendation and somewhere between freestyle and regular recommendation.
With the true center, it was ridiculous. Just plain noodles, buttering has never been that easy. Totally worth trying for a chill day.
With the freestyle recommendation it was playful, yet much more stable. I feel that it became more of jump ski when mounted back a few centimeters. Of course if you compare it to Faction Silas (comp ski), it is still way too soft to be that kind of ski. I hit 60 footers without any further problems.
With the mounting somewhere between freestyle recommendation and just recommended it was surprisingly even more stable, and it floated well in 20 inch powder.
The binding I used to change my mounting was Marker Griffon Schizo which worked way better than expected. No problems, and great joy experiencing the different sides of one ski, how it can change drastically with just a few centimeters. How you can change the ski after your mood or conditions.
tl;dr Depends on mounting, true center=true noodles. freestyle rec=still some playfulness, but stiffer. And even further back it becomes stiffer but floats way better in pow. Want to try the different styles of this ski? get marker griffon schizo, worked great for me.
rainydayinspiredAre you talking about the Factions or the Blends here? I know the Blends are soft, but I heard the factions were stiff and poppy
.lenconYeah, I mean they are a freestyle ski and people ride them switch all the time, but the exact dimensions are 132-100-122. The candide 2.0 are fully symmetric tho at 132-102-132 with a symmetric flex and rocker profile.
