I am looking at the Faction Canadie 1.0 for a do all ski. I am a mostly a frontside skier but I am getting into more large jumps and rails. Is this a good ski to do both or are there any alternative in the sub 600 price range?
If you are talking about this year's candides they are pretty damn stiff and still have a nearly symmetric shape which would be a really fun combo for big jumps. Might be a little heavy on rails, but I don't think overly so. It would honestly be a pretty good freestyle all-mountain ski too.
I may be biased as I am currently skiing them but I love my reckoner 102s as my do it all skis, they jump reasonably well while being a blast on rails and are wide enough that you can handle pretty much any snow day while still having fun due to them being wide enough to have a bit of float. Granted they are on the softer side, but I’d say for a non-comp park ski that can still handle the whole mountain they are near perfect, as they have enough to not feel like blends or Vishnu’s and rather feel like they have a bit more of a backbone
Yea this years factions look dope. I ski the dynastar menace as a do it all ski (except pow days) and it’s a cheap option that actually is an incredibly versatile ski. I use it for like 30/30/20/20 bumps/steeps/groomers/park. Candides a lil more park oriented but I heard they are stiff and heavy so probably rip.
Magnus 102 is the best all around ski I've ever ridden hands down. Not only that but it will last you years and years if you're light on park. Faction doesn't have a very good durability reputation from what I have experienced.
