Product Info

Ever wish you could arc your skis and lay it over like those heros on the World Cup, but afraid to try a true race ski? We don't blame you, but consider the DPS Cassiar A79 C2 Trainer Skis to start feeling the G-forces at mere mortal speeds. The Cassiar A79, only available in the Alchemist layup, will "train" you to start using proper turn technique to control your speed, preferring clean short radius turns to sloppy GS style speed mitigation, and we think you'll have the time of your life doing it.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber


Flex PatternsIt took over 25 flex pattern iterations to get to the special goodness that is found in a C2 chassis ski. The tip is just aggressive enough, but nimble to handle crud and moguls. The middle is firm, and the tail is weighted to thread a precise needle between an ultra- easy exit and energetic propulsion into the next turn.


C2 ChassisC2 sidecuts feature a blend of strategically placed radii that make the ski aggressive at the top of the turn, but also incredibly friendly when the ski is off-edge and drifting in mixed snow. That, coupled with varying radii in the tail section, make a C2 ski more friendly off-edge than anything DPS has built to-date in the sub-20m sidecut category. Further, these skis feature relatively high taper angles, which means the ski pulls you deeply into the turn with an immediate, responsive feel.


Aspen Wood Core

Alchemist Pure CarbonThe world's most advanced ski construction takes a significant evolutionary step forward. Alchemist pure carbon skis are the ultimate expression of the craft. Next-level, vibration-tuned aerospace grade carbon ski construction melded with absolutely the finest in supporting materials. Alchemist skis retain the same historical shapes as their Pure3 predecessors, but due to the construction upgrades are notably damper and smoother in mixed and firmer conditions.


Textured Polyamide Topsheet

Pure Prepreg Carbon Laminate with Proprietary Damping Additives


UHMW Sidewalls


Fastest & Hardest World Cup Race Bases


Wide Profile Rockwell 48c Steel Edges

Additional Features

Mounting PointsCassiar and Uschi designs are centered around a prescribed mounting point in relationship to the overall ski length. It's more forward than older generation footprints. This keeps your center of mass moving constantly forward in mixed snow and terrain more so than in traditional carving and racing skis. You stand in an incredibly balanced position that also sits in concert with the flex pattern and sidecut. The result is a more neutral and poised stance that reinforces and stokes smoothness for athletic skiing to shine.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
