The Faction Dictator 1.0 is a carving machine, built like a race ski with a freeride shape. With dual Titanal layers, lay your hip to the ground and arc perfect trenches across morning corduroy or sail over East Coast blue ice. The tip rocker and two different sidecuts create a seriously stable yet maneuverable ski that lets you push the speed limit while remaining nimble and quick in the moguls.

FUSION LIGHT CORE: PAULOWNIA, POPLAR
The mix of these two woods results in a lightweight core with excellent responsiveness and rebound, complimenting and offsetting the two full layers of Titanal metal sandwiched on either side of it.
Its isotropic qualities, equally strong in all directions, mean that the ski loves being on an edge, blasts through bumps and feels stable even in changeable snow, making it the perfect chassis for a holy grail, hard-charging freeride ski.
Surf Zone tech unites Rocker and Tip Taper design to make sure these two key features work in harmony. Rocker provides float and facilitates pivoting, while a Tapered Tip moves the widest part of the ski closer to the centre and removes unwanted hooking.
FREERIDE FLAT TAIL
Traditional flat tail design is built for speed, ultimate edge grip and control throughout charging turns. Brought into the modern day with a slight tail rocker, this shape is easier than ever to slash your turn into a slarve and won’t hook up in fresh conditions.
