Our top pick of the women’s freestyle offering this year goes to the brand new limited edition 2.0X Mademoiselle from Faction Skis.
Designed in collaboration with the true all-terrain trickster himself, we can guarantee that Candide’s skis will pop, drop and plough up, over and through any conditions you throw at them. These skis embody the all-mountain freestyle identity, equally at home in the park as they are slashing through soft stuff with that extra width underfoot making them ideal for backcountry booters.
Built with a poplar and beech wood core and a carbon stompad underfoot, this symmetrical twin will turn the whole mountain into your own personal playground. We were especially taken with the stylish white and pink topsheet with the legend himself’s signature stamped on top – presumably to help you channel true Candide style.
Pricing in at the more expensive end of the freestyle ski spectrum and packed full of well considered tech, we think these skis will suit an intermediate to expert skier who is serious about developing their style and getting ultra creative in the process. Also available in wider, stiffer model – the Candide 3.0X Mlle.
