Dictator 2.0 Ski

When winter hits there's nothing you love more than charging at Mach 10 speed down some steep groomers. Except for maybe ducking and dodging trees while you blast through fresh snow, then popping back on the trail to charge at Mach 10 speed down some steep groomers. Okay, you love pretty much everything, which is why the versatile Dictator 2.0 is right up your ally. Its 95mm waist width can rip down corduroy cruisers with lots of control, and isn't so thin that it can't hang when the snow starts to fall. Especially not with a rockered tip and Faction's Surf Zone technology helping you float through knee-deep powder lines. You've also got a camber underfoot and a slightly rockered flat-tail design for better edge control, so whether you're arching huge turns or cutting it tight down steep slopes you've got a pair of skis that won't quit on you.

  • Directional charger of an all mountain ski for confident riders
  • 96mm waist is quick edge to edge, comfortable in variable conditions
  • Rockered tip and tail provide float and quick pivoting control
  • Camber underfoot drives power to the edges for enhanced hold

Hard Charging Fun Times

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size
Size Bought

Info: I purchased the 187s and mounted Marker Griffon 13s and boots w/ 100 flex. I've skied them on Mt Hood. The description of these skis are perfect. First and foremost these are hard chargers great for carving big turns and bombing groomers. They're unforgiving on bumps in crud and will try to throw you out of your forward stance but if you keep your cool you'll be rewarded with zero chatter. There were even a couple times I got surprise air but the ski always bite right back down when I landed. I haven't skied them on fresh pow but I did take them out on a day with a lot of ice and they handle ice pretty well. It was able to hold an edge well enough so that I didn't wipe out. I wouldn't detune them at all. Now my biggest issue with the setup is the boots. I wish they were stiffer to match the ski.

Power House

I've used it several times

I got these skis for a friend and he loves them. They handled everything from trees and moguls pretty well, but they absolutely rip on groomers and feel stable. They're definitely stiffer and for skiers that are more on the aggressive side of the spectrum, so they need fairly strong skier handle them. Overall, solid all mountain ski for aggressive skiers who like to send.

Light and stable!

I've used it several times

These skis were incredibly light and carved precisely when carving deep! I felt totally in control when riding these and highly recommend them to the intermediate rider that wants fun skis with a great feel on all parts of the mountain!
