FACTION CANDIDE 1.0 REVIEW — 2017

MSRP: $699.00
Get it for: $629.00

These boards won’t automatically jet you over a heli’s whirling rotor blades, as advertised in One of Those Days 3, but they’ll sure hold up if you try. The signature model of none other than Candide Thovex, the Candide 1.0’s poplar and beech wood core provides a stiff but forgiving flex, and carbon reinforcement underfoot reduces weight while maintaining stability. “Holy s—!” was one reaction from an extra psyched tester, who added, “So stable and fast but still one of the most buttery and playful skis ever.” Candide can do just about anything on these planks, and you’ll feel the same way. Disclaimer: We don’t recommend jumping over that helicopter.
