The 2022 Facet Regulator, a park ski. A preview of Facet's playful and poppy park ski, including full specs.
The Facet Regulators were flexing in all the right places. I loved the noodley noses and the tails were firm enough to take care of business. The flex pattern felt somewhat unique and I enjoyed that - @arnie_grape
The regulators are a nice nimble ski that learns more on the stiffer side. Turn radius holds up nicely for long speedy carves but not the greatest for steep moguls. Definitely more of a great east coast park ski. - @P3t3r

"The Facet Regulator is a great example of what a modern "park & play" ski can be for people who crave a soft, compliant, sporty and loose-feeling ski to scoot all over the mountain for tricks, jumps, goofing off and playing around in all kinds of snow other than rock-hard boilerplate. The Regulators are light-feeling, quick and playful with a good amount of tip and tail rocker, so they ski much shorter than they measure, and pivot underfoot with zero effort or tip/tail hangup in bumps or cut up terrain. The soft flex means you can bang them through pretty much anything and they soak it up with ease and agility, but show a bit of insecurity on boilerplate and at high speeds.
The Regulators require essentially zero effort to ski, but deliver a quick, quick, quick response and ability to change direction on a dime and never catch an edge. They trade a lack of high-pressure handling capabiity for surfy-quick antics and a spin-pop-jump personality. This ease of handling also makes them a great choice for older skiers who want an easy-to-turn ski but also want a nicely balanced platform beyond that offered by bargin-basement intermediate skis. The Regulators are a high-quality, well-designed ski to play all over the mountain in a loose fashion without demanding an athletic pilot at the wheel. These are not a carving type of all-mountain ski, but a park-like ski with all-mountain genes spliced into it."
