DPS Wailer 106 Foundation Skis 2018

SKU: DPW10617
The DPS Wailer 106 Foundation is built for speed. And speed in any conditions mind you. We tried these skis out and put our ear to the ground to get some feedback about their performance on various types of snow, and what we find is that these perform well in soft snow (which is to be expected with a ski of this shape), but even tear it up on groomers like you would expect of a ski with a much narrower waist. That makes this an excellent east coast powder ski for intermediate to advanced skiers and, a great daily driver for the west where it could function as a one ski quiver. Whether the camber underfoot is grabbing a firm hold while nimbly jumping from edge-to-edge in trees or tearing up an open bowl this ski just works. If snow is toasted in places and soft in others, you will enjoy the way the rockered tip gives you feedback that's easy to work with. The combination of carbon fiber, fiberglass, bamboo and work together to create this incredibly versatile ski that is the Wailer 106.

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Foundation Construction:
Unidirectional carbon
Triaxial fiberglass
Newly designed bi-phase bamboo+poplar core
UHMW sidewalls
High graphite World Cup race bases
Ultra-durable textured polyamide top sheets

Rocker/Camber/Rocker: Profile creates a blend of power and dampness that is readily accessible to a wide range of skier profiles

DPS Chassis DNA: Shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-to-shape and length-to-length.

Carbon Reinforcement: An added layer of carbon that stiffens up the ski a bit and gives it better rebound when coming in and out of turns. It also gives you some extra ups while hitting jumps and cliffs.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

Textured Surface: Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces (aka snakeskin topsheet) are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis look new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.
