Why We Like The Dictator 4.0 Ski

If the biggest peaks and most heart-pounding lines are all part of your everyday playground, then the Faction Dictator 4.0 Ski might be the ski for you. This big mountain charger was designed to take on the steepest backcountry powder lines, and with you at the helm, you can bet it'll live up to its potential and then some. The 115mm waist gives you tons of control and maneuverability in the deep snow, and thanks to the rockered tip you'll be surfing down solitary peaks and pillowy tree lines with ease. Camber underfoot is paired with two full-length titanal laminates to ensure ultra-stable edge hold on fifty-degree faces while flying down at warp-speed. We really appreciate that the flat-tail is slightly rockered to balance maneuverability with an abundance of stomping power, catered to Faction’s big-mountain athletes, backcountry guides, and mountain employees around the world.

  • Big mountain ski is suited for advanced skiers who prefer the steeps
  • 115mm waist floats yet remains nimble for blasting powder at speed
  • Long turn radius caters to long sweeping turns down the fall line
  • Tip and tail rocker tracks through crud and maneuvers in tight trees
  • Dual titanal laminates offer unmatched stability at eye-watering speeds
  • Flat freeride tail holds an edge on steep faces with variable conditions
  • Full sandwich construction and 2mm steel edges offer bomber durability

Recommended Sizing Guide

Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
