Product Info

For an all-day, everyday workhorse with a narrower platform than their F112 counterpart, look no further than the DPS Wailer F99 Foundation Skis. They've got the classic Wailer rocker profile, which means you get easy turn entry and exit and superior float in the soft stuff. Plus the new Foundation construction gives them unparalleled power and dampness. From tearing up the hardpack, to playing around in the crud, to first tracks on a powder day, the DPS Wailer F99 Foundation Skis are bound to exceed your expectations.

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. In Foundation, DPS reprioritized 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 model in the Foundation 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.
