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.

The Lotus 124 is a new shape to join the DPS Quiver for 2015/16. Powderworks creations come from the DPS’ R+D lab, where future ‘mainstream’ shapes are often released early. The Powderworks division in many ways is DPS’ dream lab. “The Lotus 124 design results in a balanced ski that elegantly walks the tightrope between a deeply rockered/paddle design and a directional, flat-tailed driven design. The goal is the best of both worlds in a 120mm class pow stick that will be able to perform double duty in mixed snow. With the Powderworks Lotus 124, you are skiing the cutting edge of our exploratory thoughts – a novel new platform on the hunt for everyday powder shape perfection.” Learn more about the Lotus 124 Powderworks ski here.
