2020 DPS Skis Preview

Read our preview of 2021 DPS skis. DPS dreams up new ski shapes in 2020. DPS brings back their three top-of-the-line constructions: the premium Alchemists, the lightweight Tour1s, and the high-performance Foundations. The Tour1s will be back unchanged in 2020, but DPS will change the shapes on many of their Alchemist and Foundations skis. Now, Alchemist and Foundation skis will be designated as either "RP"or "C2." The RP skis are defined by a tight 15m sidecut and elongated tip rocker, whereas C2 skis have a longer effective edge for bigger lines. Check out the big new models for  2020 DPS Skis. 2020 DPS Skis Preview: Alchemist Line DPS introduces the Wailer A112 RP, which boasts the 15m turn radius characteristic of all RP skis.

2020 DPS Cassiar A82 Alchemist Description:

DPS' Cassiar line of skis represented a paradigm shift for skis that are front-side biased. Ski shapes and widths that are on the narrow end of the spectrum like this 82 mm waist ski can be much more than simply groomer rippers. These skis were bred from DPS' heritage of off-piste and powder hunting skis, and they bring that DNA to these narrower shapes. These skis can confidently lay down high G-Force turns on groomers but bounce through bumps and glade runs with equal precision and energy. The Cassiar lineup is refined for this year, represented by the C2 designation. The A82 C2 is a new ski for 2019 and it is the second narrowest option in the lineup. It leans the most towards frontside dominance with a solid flex pattern and precision side-cut that is matched to it's mount point to create an efficient carving machine. You would be hard pressed to find a faster edge-to-edge ski and a better option for fun every day on the mountain!

Alchemist is the next step in the evolution of DPS's groundbreaking Pure3 carbon skis and the finest example of their relentless pursuit of innovation. The Alchemist construction uses vibration-tuned aerospace carbon and premium Aspen wood cores for a smoother ride and more progressive flex, without compromising the power and precision skiers have come to expect from DPS carbon skis. The end result is the ultimate piece of lightweight versatility.
