Dreamtime event, DPS releases a limited run of Pure3 construction Special Editions (SE) skis. Special Editions are one-time creations from the DPS Design Studio, and the ski art is never reproduced again. Due to limited runs and rarity factor, Special Edition sellout is common during Dreamtime. Interested skiers are strongly encouraged to get fitted from DPS ski fitters in the lead-up to Dreamtime. For Dreamtime 2015—July 15-August 1, 2015, we proudly offer three Special Editions in the Cassiar 95, Wailer 99, and Wailer 112RP.2. This year’s designs celebrate a special partnership with Protect Our Winters (POW), the global nonprofit fighting climate change founded by renowned big-mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones. Dreamtime 2015 Special Edition Pure3 prepreg carbon skis, will feature an embossed POW logo complementing limited edition ski artwork. For each pair of Pure3 Special Edition skis sold during Dreamtime, DPS will donate $50 to POW in support of their youth education efforts and public policy advocacy. All Special Edition skis are made in the DPS Factory in Salt Lake City, Utah. Explore the Special Editions The revived commitment to the Cassiar family continues with the addition of another all-mountain waist width to the mix, the Cassiar 95. We have carried over some of the key traits of the Cassiar 85, tuning the 95 to lean moderately towards softer snow. It’s all accomplished through a slightly higher tip profile, an altered flex profile, and of course, an extra centimeter of width underfoot. The Cassiar 95 is the floatiest member of the Cassiar family and an amazing flat-tailed choice for everyday frontside excellence (Pure3 and Hybrid T2) as well as springtime backcountry duty (Pure3 and Tour1). Buy Now The Wailer 99 is the Daily Driver, redefined. Based on the award-winning Wailer 112RP2 platform, the Wailer 99 exhibits comparable versatility in a narrower package. The Wailer 99 utilizes the Wailer 112RP2's 3-D PaddleTech Geometry™—DPS’ original blend of rocker and variable sidecut. PaddleTech allows the skier to engage the Wailer 99's slightly cambered 18m underfoot turn radius while arcing g-loaded carves on hard snow. In soft or mixed snow, the skier draws on the gradually rockered paddle. The Wailer 99 gives you the best on-edge and off-edge performance, and the ability to get creative on the most versatile 100mm underfoot package ever designed. A women’s version is available in the Nina 99. Buy Now The now iconic Wailer 112RP has been redesigned and rebooted into something even more special. Featuring a lower tip and tail rocker profile that increases power and stability in mixed snow without compromising the RP’s legendary versatility, the Wailer 112RP2 is now endowed with a bigger sweet spot across a larger speed spectrum. A new chapter to the story has begun and the 112RP2 is poised to become one of skiing’s truly all-time classic shapes. Buy Now About Dreamtime Dreamtime 2015 fuels the anticipation of the coming 15/16 season and features exclusive releases of Special Edition-POW skis, new shapes from the Powderworks R+D Lab, and event-only pricing on all 15/16 skis.
