A true big mountain legend, the DPS Wailer 112 has more awards than any other ski in its category--and it earned that acclaim the hard way: by being consistently awesome. The Wailer 112 shines all over the mountain. It's surfy in untracked snow, stable on spring hardpack at reckless speeds, and smooth while shredding wide open bowls. The 112mm waist width, generous tip rocker, and Paddle Tech shape keep it floating in the deep, while a stout backbone provides power and grip. It's a beast, but one with a big sweet spot and a playful nature. If maximum versatility is what you're after, you won't do much better. It's a classic.
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.
