The Wailer 106 Tour1 Ski is DPS' answer to the resounding question of experience-focused backcountry skiers: "What's the point in grinding through long tours if you have to spend the descent feeling gripped on floppy touring skis'" Choosing a lightweight touring ski often means compromising performance, stiffness, and downhill fun in order to stay skin-track friendly, but the DPS Tour1 construction gives an effective middle finger to that compromise with the use of a poppy, stiff balsa wood core sandwiched by aerospace carbon laminates and a full cap textured polyamide top. The end result is a ski that's comparable in weight to the lightest on the market, but blows the competition away in terms of torsional rigidity, edge control, and dampening.Just because snow conditions don't pan out powdery all the time doesn't mean you'll skip a dawn patrol, but it's nice to have a little float when there's fresh stuff. Whipped up with a versatile 106mm waist, and the Wailer is ready to devour powder, crud, ice, hardpack, and all the fast pre-dawn ascents you can throw at it. A rockered tip and tail with traditional camber underfoot and a chassis-driven sidecut bring the best of both worlds for laying the ski on edge and blasting through crud or pow. Enjoy precision, power, and levity in every type of snow condition, every damn time.
