Product Info

Behold DPS flagship new ski, the DPS Wailer 106 Tour1 Skis. The centerpiece of their new Chassis Design ideology, the Wailer 106 is just about up for 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. In the case of the DPS Wailer 106 Tour1 Skis, the combination of Tour1 construction and Chassis design creates a ski that is ideally suited for objective-oriented touring, ideally with fresh snow. The DPS Wailer 106 Tour1 Skis are extremely light, but deliver versatility and efficiency on the way down - a harmonious combination of sidecut and rocker profile that reacts to your every move.

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

Tour1 Core | Balsa + CarbonTour1 is a targeted lightweight backcountry build that emphasizes fast ascents and class-leading downhill performance. It is significantly lighter than Pure3, DPS’ flagship construction. Whereas Pure3 is the ultimate in advanced ultra-powerful carbon ski technology, Tour1 skis are comparable in weight to the lightest backcountry-specific touring skis on the market while offering competitive differentiation by exhibiting superior, class-leading torsional stiffness, unmatched edge grip and dampening via a proprietary Tour1 specific aerospace carbon laminate. Why invest energy in long tours if you are forced to ride floppy touring skis that sap the performance and fun out of the descent?

Laminates

Edges
