If you love the magical powder performance of the DPS Lotus 138 (and you should), but you want a bit more versatility, the DPS Lotus 120 is your ski. For this Lotus, DPS slimmed down the waist to a more reasonable 120mm, shortened the tip rocker a bit, dialed back the cartoonish reverse sidecut, and added a touch of camber underfoot. That makes this ski much more versatile inbounds and on tracked-up terrain than the Lotus 138, but still almost as effortless and surfy in the deep stuff. The rocker up front and pin tail at the rear keep turns nimble and loose, while a stout core delivers a light, smooth, and durable ride. DPS makes astonishingly good big mountain skis, and the Lotus 120 is perhaps the most versatile powder plank they've dreamt up.
DPS is famous for innovation in pursuit of uncompromising performance, and their Pure3 construction blends aerospace carbon and nanotechnology to build some of the most advanced skis in the world. This exclusive design produces planks that are 30% lighter, but also more powerful, more durable, and torsionally stiffer. Precision engineering combined with premium materials, DPS's Pure3 construction remains unmatched on the mountain.
