What Faction says about the Dancer 2X

“All-mountain soul. 

Click into the Dancer 2X and enjoy pure, all-mountain freeride bliss. Two razor-thin sheets of metal complement the sustainably-sourced poplar wood core for the ideal blend of up-tempo energy, light weight and stable, full-control handling. Its 96 mm waist is versatile to handle all conditions and all terrain. You’ll even float and dance above the choppy stuff thanks to the perfect touch of rocker. Backed by the finest, most durable Austrian construction, powered 100% by renewable energy.

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Dancer 2X:

Tips: 7-7.5
Shovels: 7.5-8
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9
Tails: 9-8.5

The flex pattern of the Dancer 2X feels practically identical to that of the Dancer 2.
