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 Ultralight 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, both in soft and variable snow conditions. 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 lightweight powerhouse of a ski. It has a full length sidewall, too, all while weighing in around 1300g at 179cm. Don't be shackled to the roadside touring options- with a powerful ski this light, you'll have the freedom to ski aggressively, and 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.

  • Full sidewall construction offers direct power transmission through the ski, and a low swing weight combined with all the carbon in the core makes for a snappy, lively ride.
  • With the same shaping as their other 100RP skis, DPS pulled off the quite the magic trick by shedding significant weight while preserving downhill performance.
  • Aerospace quality foam makes up the core of the ski, while a fresh carbon overlay improves torsional rigidity and a consistent flex pattern.
  • Uncompromised construction offers lightweight specs while maintaining an uncanny power, not characteristic of a ski this light.
Skimo Co Says
Usage Huge days in deep snow, self powered of course!!
Notes If you're spending $1,500 on a pair of planks, you can definitely afford to buy your mom a nicer birthday present.
Bottom Line An impressive spec sheet with a unique and modern construction that may well be the future of touring skis.
