They say

The new Dictator series puts the focus on charging freeride flat tail skis and ups the ante.

We say

As expected, the new Dictator feels like a classic hard charging freeride ski. It has a real sense of stability about it, with the ability to blast through crud and chopped up conditions with impunity. Once on the edge it feels pretty direct and gives the skier confidence to push hard on speed, however they still have the ability to exit the turns with ease. In deep snow they give out instant float and feel perfect for laying out some proper big, fast, freeride turns. Overall, this is a strong ski for confident skiers that love to push it.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
A great high speed, stable charger, with good float in the deep snow
Al Morgan
 A strong ski that is pleasingly agile when you increase the speed, really stable when opened up
