DPS' Tour1 Receives ISPO Award

DPS Wailer 112RP2 Tour1 wins ISPO Product Award for Ski Touring DPS is proud to announce that the Wailer 112RP2 Tour1 has received a prestigious ISPO Product Award in the Ski Touring category. ISPO, the international exhibition for sport business—the largest in the snow sports world—took place in Munich February 5-8, 2015. The award-winning Wailer 112RP2 Tour1 is the flagship model of DPS’ newest, and fourth construction, Tour1. DPS Tour1 represents a novel platform of class-leading skis in the touring category that prioritizes a feathery weigh-in while simultaneously delivering a high-performance descent—all infused with DPS’ renowned torsional stiffness, power, and craftsmanship. The Wailer 112RP2 platform is the most handsomely awarded ski in the industry. Its ability to float in powder and carve on groomed surfaces creates an unmatched one-ski quiver. Now mated with a new aerospace prepreg carbon laminate geared towards backcountry touring, the Wailer 112RP2 Tour1 will be one of the lightest and widest skis on the market, yet will have more power and better edge grip than competitive touring specific skis on the market. Tour1-blog-112 “The ISPO Award for our new Wailer 112RP2 Tour1 represents a deep validation to the early accolades Tour1 has received from media outlets around the world on our mid-season 2015 Tour1 launch. Tour1 completes the DPS construction paradigm giving skiers maximum diversity in choice for targeting the precise ski for their style and use,” Stephan Drake, DPS Founder. Tour1-blog-AWARD Tour1 represents an exciting new chapter in the DPS storyline. By creating a fourth ski construction—a touring-specific platform, DPS now arguably has the most targeted quiver anywhere. With four distinct ski constructions to choose from, dedicated skiers can acutely hone-in the exact construction for their skiing style, terrain use, and nuanced preferences. The mid-season release of Tour1 is available in the same award-winning shapes that are the versatile performance workhorses of the DPS quiver, namely the Cassiar 95, Wailer 99, Wailer 112RP2. All Tour1 skis are available to purchase at DPS dealers worldwide, or direct on dpsskis.com.
