Product Info

Behold DPS flagship new ski, the DPS Wailer 106 Foundation Skis. The centerpiece of their new Chassis Design ideology, the Wailer 106 is up for just about anything. This new philosophy centers around the concept that a ski should be built from your center of balance outwards, using variable material types, thicknesses, and shaping, rather than simply laying material down on a pre-determined mold, "sandwich" style. The DPS Wailer 106 Foundation Skis combine brand new bi-phase bamboo and poplar with unidrectional carbon, for DPS best combination of dampness and power yet. The DPS Wailer 106 Foundation Skis are at your beck and call, adapting to your style and terrain choice effortlessly, from a big-mountain line to freshly groomed corduroy.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker

Sidecut

Paddle TechTapered, flatter sidecut section that blends at the contact points. Creates a smooth and intuitive sense of turn shape.

Shape

Chassis DesignIn ski design, there is a conventional hierarchy of variables that drive the end shape. From 2016 onwards, DPS has re-prioritized and reorganized these drivers so that the design now starts directly under your foot and moves outward to the tip and tail, as opposed to overlaying flex patterns on pre-drawn shapes. The result is an optimized relationship between the flex pattern and sidecut that is perfected through testing, and then mathematically translated across every new model in the lineup. The goal is to create a distinct DPS feel that can be sensed in every ski from the Cassiar 82 all the way to the Lotus 124.

Core

Foundation Core | Bi-Phase Bamboo + PoplarFoundation is a completely reimagined and rebuilt construction category that represents a futuristic approach to ski design. Every model in the Foundation series shares DPS Chassis DNA shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-to shape and length-to-length.

On-snow feel is a wonderful blend of power and dampness that is readily accessible to a wide range of skier profiles.
