Faction Dictator 1.0 2020

The very blue Faction Dictator 1.0 for 2020.

Faction’s freeride-oriented Dictator line is directional, monochromatic, and a boatload of fun for freestyle oriented skiers. The narrowest of the family, the Dictator 1.0 was the testers’ favorite from the brand this year, garnering high marks in playfulness and quickness in the tight trees of Taos. But the 1.0 really shined brightest in the moguls, thanks to a forgiving shovel and a snappy paulownia and poplar wood core. 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Playfulness

WEAKNESS: Flotation
