What Faction says about the Dancer 3

“All-mountain freeride funk.

The Dancer 3 is the quiver-killer for the freerider who frequently chases bigger lines, yet needs a ski that excels in all conditions and all terrain. With tip and tail rocker and a versatile 106 mm waist, the Dancer 3 floats very well in powder and ‘busts a move’ through crud with full confidence all while maintaining the ability to carve like a knife on the hardpack. Two razor-thin sheets of metal provide smooth stability without weighing you down. Backed by the finest, most durable Austrian construction, powered 100% by renewable energy.”
