Product Info

Though not a "dictator" per se, Pablo Escobar was inherently evil and dominated the world's drug trade. With his ruthless spirit in mind, the Faction Dictator 3.0 Skis were conceived to show big mountains no mercy. Capable of handling powder with prestige, similar to their namesake we should add, the Dictator 3.0's 105 mm waist width and stiff construct make these bad boys freshy phenoms with no discernible speed limit. Their dual radius side cut provides stability for total mountain control, expanding the breadth of your abilities like the Medellin Cartel looking for a few new dealers.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker370 mm rocker in the tip, 2 mm camber underfoot, and 300 mm rocker in the tail.

Flex

Stiff Flex8/10 - Designed to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.

Sidecut

Dual-Radius SidecutBorrowed from world cup race skis, two different radii on the one ski - a tighter radius forward of the boot center coupled with a 20% larger sidecut behind - lets Faction increase the edge-to-edge responsiveness so you can carve short turns whilst retaining high speed stability and control through the tail of the ski.

Shape

Transition Zone TechnologyFaction's "Blended Transition Zones" use complex curve geometries where both positive/negative sidecut and where rocker/camber meet to make turn initiation fluid yet the whole ski more stable and controllable in all conditions.

Core

Paulownia / Poplar Wood Core

Sidewalls

Sandwich ConstructionUsed on most of Faction's skis. A traditional manufacturing method that provides strength, durability, good grip, and edge hold. Rubber is used to dampen vibration and bond the base layers to the core.

Base

Die-Cut PTEX 3000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 3000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Graphics

Brushed Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

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