Introducing a groundbreaking ski: the DPS Wailer 112RP

Introducing a groundbreaking ski for all to shred with 

The thoroughbred Lotus series is now matched with a shape to be skied all day at the resort and in the backcountry. The Wailer 112RP bridges the gap with a shape that combines the loose and early planing feel of a fully rockered ski with aggressive sidecut and slight camber underfoot. It’s a one-ski quiver for planing untracked in the morning, laying trenches down to the lift on the groomed, and slaying crud in the afternoon. A 16m radius underfoot and great torsional stiffness allow for maximum versatility, while the rockered and tapered tips and tail allow the Wailer 112RP to get loose and be driven from the ball of the foot in deeper snow. It's a game changer.

 Hear what the buzz is about

We are jazzed on the Wailer 112RP. It’s a groundbreaker.

Surf in the morning and load up g’s on the way to the lift. You don’t have to go in for a new ski once it’s cut up in the afternoon. The 16m radius underfoot is aggressive. The rocker profile is aggressive. The tip splay is aggressive. 2-3mm of camber underfoot. The flex is fairly firm, but friendly in the tip and tail—a completely new profile was designed for this ski. Yellow is the standard color: in the pre-order custom color options are available. Contact mike@dpsskis.com.

The Wailer 112RP is the center point of your quiver.

The sidecut is great on that shape. It’s fun at the resort—not the typical mandatory slide-fest that wider and straighter shapes are. You can hook this ski up and ride the sidecut and actually pull g’s and round clean carves on the groomed—and at 112 underfoot there is no boot-out.

While dynamic and high-performance while on edge, the Wailer 112RP is also incredibly friendly when off edge, and the sidecut isn’t a hindrance. With the rocker design providing a loose tail, it is incredibly balanced and slides beautifully- massive power slides are easy and very controlled- going sideways at 30 mph isn’t a battle of fore/aft balance, rather a stable ride on the ball of your foot… It’s the best of both worlds in that sense.

But the groomer performance is ridiculously good. With the torsional stiffness of the carbon construction, you can ride the edge in fully g-loaded, railed carves. With the rockered tip and tail you can also let go of the edge and launch into controlled high-speed powerslides- so fun. They are speed and confidence inspiring. At 112, there is no boot out either at high edge angles- super nice.

The versatility and fun factor continues in soft snow—very surfable and planable for 112 underfoot. The rocker and tip lets you drive from the ball of the foot.

You do give up a bit of straight line stability in the deep compared to the bigger/straighter Lotuses, but you get that back in fun and playfulness… it initiates instantaneously.

This ski is going to have a ton of people stoked as the centerpiece of their quiver.

When we check a photo or video of a ski working in soft snow, we are looking for surfing tips and a reeling line of spray coming off the downhill ski- that means the ski is planing effectively- and the Wailer 112RP does that, and more.
