The Faction Dictator 2.0 all mountain skis are your new daily driver. If your perfect day starts by making quick work of the piste right after catching first chair, zipping in out of the trees to lunch and firing up those quads in bump-land until last light, then the Dictator is your ski.
Dual Titanal layers and a freeride Paulownia/Poplar core gets the Dictator 2.0 ready to slay it all, from flashing zipper lines in Vermont to dropping into Corbet's Couloir in Jackson. The extended tip rocker allows for a full attack on powder and crud, combined with minimal tail rocker to slay that turn right through to the end.
At 96mm underfoot, and a dual-radius sidecut, which compliments all skiing styles and abilities, the Dictator 2.0 makes quick work of the tightest tree runs and mogul fields.
While the 3mm of traditional camber on the mid-width platform is perfect for laying down hard-arcing turns.

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.
