Product Details

Nine seasons of Alaskan R+D, but comfortably at home in the Wasatch, Tetons, or Alps, the Lotus 138 was the first rockered ski with sidecut ever built. The Lotus 138 incorporates the benefits of Spoon Technology that features a Spooned convex shovel along with a new flex profile. The already iconic shape combines carbon’s power and precision with featherweight lightness in an unrivaled concoction bred for those who live for the art of riding deep snow.

Please note: Spoon Technology is available in Pure3 construction models only, and not in Hybrid construction.

Lotus 138 Review from Powder Magazine

“The Lotus 138 is built for high-speed surfy pow riding, with the hardest race base available, insanely lightweight construction (if you splurge for the pure carbon+nano version), and long tip rocker and pintail shape. The 138, in short, is built for pow—specifically hauling down Alaskan faces while remaining nimble enough to change direction in an instant. Even at 192cm, the Lotus 138 can whip turns quick enough for tight trees or big mountain lines. It even comes in a 1990-esque 202cm length. So sell the house, pick up some 138’s, and head to AK—your GoPro will be very happy.” 

 Lotus 138 Review from Blister Gear Review

“Not so long ago, DPS was the new kid on the block, and the Lotus 138 was one of the freshest innovations in the world of powder skiing. Now, the Lotus 138 is more like the grandfather of modern design. It’s been around for a while, and while DPS has continued to tweak the construction materials, sidecut profiles, and amount of splay, the ski maintains its unmistakable, iconic look. For their 2012-2013 model, however, DPS completely rethought the Lotus 138 from the ground up, regarded nothing as sacred about its design, and after major deliberation…decided just to throw a snowflake on the top sheet. So what’s the takeaway here? DPS believes that the Lotus 138 is dialed.” 

Lotus 138 Review from Teton Gravity Research

"These are hands down the best skis I’ve ever ridden. In pow they are a dream, they’ll make any turn, and cannot be sunk. I feel that chewed up crud is where they really shine, they truck over everything and are so confidence inspiring." 

Truly Unique, DPS Pure3 construction makes for the most advanced and highest performance skis on earth. Pure3: Carbon+Nano features exclusive aerospace carbon and nanotech technology, and the absolute finest accompanying materials. Revolutionary on both paper and on snow, the Pure3 construction showcases years of research and refinement in a ski that is 30 percent lighter than conventional constructions, while at the same time 30 percent torsionally stiffer, stronger, and more powerful.

The Hybrid line is our take on traditional ski construction. While evoking all the shaping and flex pattern heritage of the pure line, Hybrid skis evoke their own distinctive, damp feel. Compared side-by-side with industry standard fiberglass and metal laminate skis, Hybrids feature sweet upgrades like carbon fiber stringers, bamboo core laminates, and the finest, fastest graphite bases made.
