Spooning the Lotus Family

In 2007, DPS’ Founder Stephan Drake explored ways to increase ski angle and encourage lift for more dynamic, stylistic carves and slides in deep snow. Deeply convex bases became the focus, and the rumblings of the Spoon began… The first version of the Spoon debuted at the SIA trade show in January 2011, where it demonstrated glimpses into a world beyond square edges. It was nominated for an ISPO Award in the category of ‘Design and Innovation’, and shortly thereafter a Radical Design Award from Outside Magazine. Since, the Spoon has gone on to have features in Wired Magazine and Men's Journal. Since the early concept iterations, the Spoon has gone through five complex 3-D prototypes to finalize the shape of the 2013-14 production version. From the start, the design mandate for the Spoon was to create a 100 percent dedicated powder surfing tool. The 2013-14 Spoon draws upon years of experience gained from refining DPS’ iconic Lotus 138 and Lotus 120 models, resulting in a ski that requires very little up-and-down movement in deep powder; providing incredibly fast slarving, angulated skiing with powerful reeling vertical sprays. Over the last ten years, DPS has led the way in the big-mountain genre with a number of firsts, including introducing the first 120mm powder pintail (Lotus 120), transferring the word “rocker” from surfing to skiing, and introducing the first rockered ski with sidecut (Lotus 138). The Lotus family of skis represents the most evolved big-mountain/powder tools available anywhere, so naturally we wouldn’t rest once we launched the Spoon. Through Spoon R+D we explored the farthest reaches of powder ski surfing technology, and are now opening a new chapter in deep powder skiing with the Lotus 120 Spoon and Lotus 138 Spoon. While the Lotus 120 and Lotus 138 keep their distinct identities and all-mountain versatility, the Spoon is specifically intended for the deep powder days that bring to life the benefits of Spoon Technology allowing skis to drift and surf powder with ease.
