The Faction Dictator 3.0 skis are for skiers who chase the bigger lines but needs a ski that excels in all conditions. This ski floats through fresh snow and chowder like a boss, doesn’t hook up at high speeds and ensures you can lace tight turns or smear out your turn when you need to. The ski floats through powder with ease thanks to surf zone technology and a dual radius sidecut means you can lace tight turns or smear out a turn when you need to.
The Faction Dictator 3.0 all mountain skis are 106mm underfoot, with 4mm of camber, a tapered tip and tail, and a mellow rocker profile. The dual-radius sidecut and tapered tip and tail make it easy and quick to turn when things gets technical. Solid dampening and a long sidecut in the tail let you put the pedal to the metal when you want to open it up for a smooth, fast-paced descent, whilst a shorter sidecut and rocker in the tip allow for quick turns in tight space.
With Dual Titanal layers burly enough for GS, coupled with a lightweight, responsive Paulownia/Poplar core, this hard-charging chassis has got quads of steel and a freeride soul.
Squared off tails are great for attaching climbing skins.
Dual Radius Sidecut:
A tighter radius forward of the boot center coupled with a 20% larger sidecut behind - increases the edge-to-edge responsiveness so you can carve short turns while retaining high speed stability and control through the tail of the ski.
All Faction skis are backed by a two year warranty.

DUAL RADIUS SIDECUT
In front of the binding, a shorter radius sidecut provides quick response and control for tighter turns while a longer radius in the tail keeps you stable, feeling solid when you’re charging. The result is a ski that surfs seamlessly between different turn angles and never drags.
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.
