This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:

Truth time, friends: in the past, I've often preferred DPS's other, less-expensive constructions to their world-beating carbon Pure3 build. I liked the lighter weight of the Tour1 series. And I liked the softer, rounder flex of the Foundation skis. The Alchemist construction, however, changes things. New for 2018, this premium carbon build offers a larger sweet spot, a less hinge-like flex profile, and does away with the twitchiness that would occasionally emerge on the Pure3. The mysterious "dampening additives" listed in the Alchemist specs seem to be doing the job. On a mid-winter day at Copper, I found this Wailer 99 Alchemist to deliver a noticeably smoother ride than its Pure3 brother, handling firm bumps, variable glades, and semi-soft groomers with admirable precision. DPS dedicated a good number of years to perfecting the Alchemist build. Seems like time well spent.

Review + Features:

Are you tempted by the legendary tales of the DPS Wailer 112, but desire more edge-to-edge quickness for frontside carving? Do you find yourself spending more time in bumps and tight trees than in wide open, untracked bowls? Do you instinctively recoil at skis wider than 100mm underfoot? Then the Wailer 99 is your holy grail. At 99mm-wide, the Wailer 99 outshines the fatter Wailer 112 on groomed snow, where its lightning-fast turn initiation is hard to match. That nimble feel is especially welcome in tight spaces ike moguls and East Coast glades. DPS's PaddleTech geometry dials in the rocker profile and tapered sidecut to deliver a precise but playful on-snow feel. The value of a versatile 100mm-wide ski is no secret to big mountain skiers, and the Wailer 99 might be the best in the world.

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.

Ski Features:
Core: Aspen wood with pure prepreg carbon fiber
Proprietary dampening additives
Textured polyamide topsheet
Full UHMW sidewalls
Wide profile Rockwell 48 steel edges
Fastest and hardest World Cup race bases
Paddle Tech tapered sidecut
