With the ski industry pouring countless dollars into product and material development, perfection is bound to be attained at some point. Could it be that we, mere mortals, are witnessing the holy golden age in ski engineering? Well, we don't know about all that, but DPS has certainly crafted a ski that will have you calling in sick perhaps more than we would advise. The Powderworks Wailer 100 RP might very well be the standard for freeride backcountry touring, with no expense spared in creating a ski that is light enough to hike for miles but which can be skied without hesitation, in both soft and variable snow conditions. DPS says, "never before have skis this lightweight exhibited this level of dampened feel and dynamic edge to edge power". After much deiberation and thought, we would tend to agree with them. Classic DPS shape and profile offers easy downhill performance, and an aerospace grade lightweight foam core overlaid with an updated carbon laminate completes this frighteningly powerful ski. It has a full length sidewall, too, giving this Powderworks product a feature regularly reserved for much heavier skis. Don't be shackled to the roadside touring options- with a light ski this powerful, you'll have the freedom to ski aggressively and to get deep into the backcountry under your own power.

Disclaimer: Don't email us when you lose your job after you call in 'sick' one too many times.

  • Aerospace quality foam makes up the very damp core of the ski, while a fresh carbon overlay improves torsional rigidity and a consistent flex pattern.
  • Full sidewall construction offers direct power transmission through the ski, and a low swing weight combined with the magic core makes for a snappy, lively ride.
  • With the same shaping as their 100RP Alchemist skis, DPS pulled off quite the magic trick by shedding significant weight while preserving downhill performance.
  • Uncompromised construction offers impressive specs while maintaining an uncanny power, not characteristic of a ski this light.
