I've spent quite a bit of time on a 178cm Cassiar 95 Tour1 (mounted with Dynafit ST 2.0s, if you're curious), and the dry, antiseptic description provided below this review does not do it justice. This ski is meant for adventurous days in the backcountry, and, at that, it excels. The Cassiar 95 is light, stable, smooth, and predictable. In short, it's a blast. What surprised me, though, was its performance at the resort. In spring bumps and variable trees at A-Basin, the featherweight build of this thing made it feel lightning-quick. But it still has the backbone to grip firmer stuff. Truth be told, I often prefer the softer flex of the Tour1 construction to that of the pricier, stiffer Pure3. That's mostly because I'm only 145lbs (of fury). If you're quite a bit bigger than me, though, or just really like to charge, the Pure3 version of this ski offers more power and stabilty. Either way, it's a keeper.

2020 DPS Cassiar 95 Tour1 Description:

The Cassiar 95 Tour1 is a classic choice for all-mountain adventurers. Featuring a flat-tail design, which translates to full contact along the ski's entire edge in any style of snow. Enjoy the long arcing feel of the dowhill edge as it graces various turn shapes from sidecut-perfect carves, to slarved short radius windshield wipers with extra knee angulation. A perfect balance of shape, weight, and stability, the Cassiar 95 Tour1 is all the ski you need for long days spent exploring big mountains.

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.
