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.

2019 DPS Cassiar F94 Foundation Description:
The Cassiar F95 Foundation that came out a few years back was a hit, but the folks over at DPS decided to tweak and refine a few more things entering the 2019 season. So what we are left with is the new 2019 Cassiar F94 Foundation. On the surface it may just look like an incredibly small step down in terms of waist width but the skis have actually changed quite a bit. The new C2 Chassis feature a blend of strategically placed radii that make the ski aggressive at the top of the turn, but also very friendly when the ski is off edge in mixed snow. Now this ski presents a nice sweet spot and delivers a truly balanced and amazing all mountain experience for the conditions commonly encountered on most resort days. This ski feels most at home during the shallow storms or two days after a storm.
