Much like its namesake, the Faction Candide 2.0 likes to dabble in a little bit of everything. This year, the 2.0 gets an updated poplar and beech core for additional playfulness. "It's a light ski with enough dampness to handle variable crud after popping off a jump," says Hawaiian shirt-connoisseur Kade
Krichko. Not as fat as its 3.0 and 4.0 brethren, the 2.0 is built for maneuverability over power, but still packs enough punch to handle some bigger terrain. "It's a good size for someone who likes to ski groomers and occasionally venture into powder," says shop guy Dane Weister.
