The skinnier brother of the legendary DPS Wailer 112RP2, the Wailer 99 is probably a better choice for many skiers looking for that elusive one-ski-quiver. At 99mm underfoot, the Wailer 99 outshines the wider Wailer 112 on groomed snow, where its edge-to-edge quickness and lightning-fast turn initiation is hard to match. That nimble feel is especially welcome in bumps and tight trees. In the Pure3 construction, an Aspen wood core reinforced with pure prepreg carbon provides a stunningly light and powerful backbone for gripping hardpack, blowing through crud, and dancing in the glades. Meanwhile, DPS's Paddle Tech geometry dials in the rocker profile and tapered sidecut to deliver a precise but playful on-snow feel. Big mountain skiers know the value of a versatile 100mm-wide ski, and the Wailer 99 might be the best that category has to offer.
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.
