Product Info

The Faction Dictator 2.0 Skis call the shots, especially in steep, technical and icy terrain. Faction's stoutest and dampest construction includes two sheets of Titanal, a full poplar wood core, full strength sidewalls and burly 2.5mm edges for the complete big mountain package. One ride will tell you this is the right choice for days when you aren't quite sure if you'll measure up to the terrain, but you want to stack the odds in your favor.

Product Details

Rocker Type

360mm Tip Rocker / 4mm Camber / 210mm Flat Tail Rocker

Flex

Flex Rating8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutMade up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Shape

Freeride Flat TailTraditional 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.

Surf ZonesUnites rocker and tip taper ensuring 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 center and removes unwanted hooking. Surf Zones promise a floaty, seamless ride in all conditions.

Core

Poplar CorePoplar is a light-colored, medium-weight, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having a whole load of vibration absorption capabilities. Used as the only wood in this core, it allows the ski to pop, butter and stomp like a park ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.

Laminates

Dual Span TitanalTitanal's isotropic qualities, equally strong in all directions, mean that the ski loves being on edge, blasts through bumps and feels stable even in changeable snow, making it the perfect chassis for a holy grail, hard-charging freeride ski.

Sidewalls

Full Strength SidewallThis construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage.

Anti-Chip Tip & Tail CapFull strength sidewall underfoot, with the topsheet wrapping around the ski so that it meets the edge in the tip and tail. This provides strong protection from impact, boosting the ski's durability, as well as reducing the overall weight of the ski for freestyle or touring needs.

Edges

XL 2.5mm EdgesExtra edge thickness gives the skier a pair of skis that absorb shock and impact much better than skis with standard edges. The result is a ski with a much higher life expectancy.

Additional Features

Scratch Resistant Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
