Why we chose the Faction Dictator 3.0: No fake news here – crud-busting performance in a 105 mm package.
Whilst the Faction Agent 2.0 is kind of like the wholesome, well behaved, girlfriend you’d be happy to bring home and show off to your parents, these, the Dictator 3.0 are more like well… that dictator you most certainly wouldn’t like to bring back to your parents.
As with all dictators, give the Dictator 3.0 an inch and they’ll take you for a ride. If you’re able to keep hot on your toes though, and drive these skis from the tips, then these are going to reward you with some extremely fast and stable turns.
Enough analogies about girlfriend and dictators – how does it ski? Well, expect it to be able to blast though pretty much any kind of chopped up pow given its construction which is nothing short of heavyweight.
“As with all dictators, give the Dictator 3.0 an inch and they’ll take you for a ride”
Not only is there a stencil of a dictator sitting directly underfoot, but the Dictator 3.0 provides you with two sheets of titanal that span the full length of the ski, giving the ski an extremely stout flex profile throughout. This use of metal will let the skis track through their full radii, no matter how mashed the snow becomes.
