Salt Lake City’s DPS Skis is coming out with new pure carbon fiber sandwich skis in the Wailer99 and a version for the ladies, the Nina99.
Stephan Drake, DPS founder, announced that “the Wailer 99 and Nina 99 are highly anticipated new members of the DPS family. We’ve worked hard on this ski, and committed more to the prototyping and development process than any model we have ever produced. The 100mm waist-width category is crowded with many capable skis, so we are thrilled with the results of this distinctive tool in design and performance.”
The Wailer 99/Nina 99 is the redefined version of the Daily Driver, turning into the new standard for all-mountain/all-condition shapes and exhibiting similar versatility as the Wailer 112RP platform but in a narrower package (bigger is not always better). The new ski utilizes 3-D PaddleTech GeometryTM (a DPS original blend of rocker and variable sidecut) allowing the skier to employ the Wailer 99/Nina 99 ‘s faintly cambered 18m underfoot turn radius while charging g-loaded carves on tougher snow. In softer snow, the skier can draw on the rockered paddle sections of the tip and tail for longer turn radii, slarves, and off-edge control. These skis can clearly do it all.
Drake added, “It’s such an intuitive and balanced ski-we hope that it gives skiers amazing sensations.”
DPS Skis is a ski industry leader combining innovative engineering with vision and powder psyche. The Wailer 99/Nina 99 gives skiers the best of on-edge and off-edge performance with the most adaptable 100mm underfoot package ever created.
