Faction Candide 1.0

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The Candide 1.0 was a fun ski to rip around on the bluebird groomer I tested them at. From what I had heard I was expecting a stiff ski, and while it was solid under foot, the tip and tail had a nice amount of flex and pop. It moved quickly from edge to edge with a short-medium radius and d…

Faction Candide 2.0

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The ski of choice for most of the Faction Squad and with good reason, these things are loads of fun. The Candide 2.0 has evolved over recent years, what was a fairly stiff ski, is now the softest its been, especially in the tip. They are buttery and playful, but still very skiable all…

Faction Candide 3.0

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: The 3.0 is a ski I've always thoroughly enjoyed testing. It's definitely improved over its gradual evolution and now carves excellently. The balsa/flax core provides enough stiffness for me to charge (5'9 and 140lbs) all the while being poppy, butterable and noticeably light in the air. L…

Faction Candide 4.0

2018 Skis

Newschoolers' Review: Although they are marketed as stiffer, to me, the generous rocker makes the 4.0 feel softer and more playful than the 3.0. They do a good job of being surfy and still carve well. For the size they are super light and handle variety much more easily than previous versions (pre-16/17). They a…

Faction Prodigy 2.0

2018 Skis

On Snow Comment: The Prodigy seems like a good option for a freestyle skier who likes to spend some time all over the mountain. It felt slightly stiffer than the Candide 1.0 with a little less pop, but held up a better on uneven terrain and did a better job powering through bumps. -Krotch Characteristics: Ultr…
