The skinniest brother of the legendary DPS Wailer 112, 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. DPS's PaddleTech geometry dials in the rocker profile and tapered sidecut to deliver a precise but playful on-snow feel, while a stout backbone grips the hardest surfaces. 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.
The Foundation series is DPS's reinvention of the traditional wood core ski, focused on premium materials and precision engineering. A bamboo and poplar backbone is reinforced with carbon to deliver a damp and powerful ride. Under the hood, Chassis DNA shared by all Foundation models carefully blends flex and sidecut from tip to tail for a consistent feel and smooth, effortless turns.
