Manufacturer's Description

The new Dictator 3.0 shows no mercy. 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. 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 when the going gets technical.

Ski Review: So the ski blurb says “Show no mercy” and we instantly dismiss that as marketing hype. No. No no no. Wrong. The Faction Dictator 3 is burly. It’s stiff. This ski is so uncomfortable at slow speeds that it’s an exercise in mental fortitude. When let off the leash in steep chargeable terrain, the Dictator comes alive, but it’s still so stiff that you can’t switch off for a second and you need to be pointing roughly downhill - all-the-time. On the piste these skis can be enjoyable, but a race ski is 10x more enjoyable because it’s built for the job. Even if you want to charge around the piste there are better options out there. For most, Faction have delivered a ski that you’ll pull out of the rack once a year. Mere mortals do not apply. Professional freeriders who won’t be paying for their skis only!
