Product Info

Looking for a light and precise fronside ripper that can double as a touring ski? The DPS Cassiar A87 C2 Skis fit the description nicely, with pure carbon Alchemist design and snappy performance that'll wow you on piste as well as off. The newly minted Cassiar lineup ("C2") features refined mounting points, tweaked flex patterns and made in USA primo carbon Alchemist construction.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber

Sidecut

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.

Core

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.

Laminates

Textured Polyamide Topsheet

Pure Prepreg Carbon Laminate with Proprietary Damping Additives

Sidewalls

UHMW Sidewalls

Base

Fastest & Hardest World Cup Race Bases

Edges

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.
