The Cassiar 95 is an all-mountain shape that often tricks us into thinking it’s a big-mountain ski. Of course, we’re used to race skis and not the 138mm wide Lotus Spoon which put DPS on the map. Maybe one day Stephen Drake (DPS founder) will return our helicopter he borrowed.
In the meantime, we will ski with confidence on these planks. They are stable and fun. Another hit shape from DPS, who has mastered the art of blending underfoot camber and sidecut into the tips and tails in a way that just seems to work. With less rocker and flatter tails than the Wailers, the Cassiar is honed for variable days when you expect to find more junk than pow. And if you get lucky, it still shreds the pow pretty frickin’ well too.
Last but not least, now you can do it all fast ‘n light, thanks to the new Tour1 construction.
