Featherweight for the skin track, but stable and precise when pointed downhill, the Cassiar 87 Tour1 is just as comfortable deep off-piste in the Alps as it is making dawn patrol laps at Breckenridge. The skinniest offering in DPS's backcountry-focused Tour1 lineage, this 87mm-waisted Cassiar is lightning-quick from edge to edge on firm surfaces, but has a subtle rocker profile to keep the tips floating in softer snow. This plank is light, playful, and yet, somehow, stable--punching well above its weight when conditions get variable or speeds get reckless. When lung-busting climbs and daredevil descents are on the day's itinerary, the Cassiar 87 Tour1 is your best friend.
The Tour1 construction is DPS's lightest build, precision engineered for world-beating backcountry performance. A blasa wood core is reinforced with the same aerospace carbon fiber found in their flagship Pure3 skis to shave as much weight as possible for long, fast ascents without compromising stability and grip on the downhill. Using premium materials and designed for maximum versatility, the Tour1 construction delivers a best-in-class ride for backcountry rippers--or resort skiers who favor an ultralight plank.
