DPS: TOUR1- New Construction for Backcountry

Published by Mountainblog on .

dpsDPS is proud to announce a new chapter in the carbon ski revolution by introducing a fourth construction option to its lineup. Tour1 is a targeted lightweight backcountry build that emphasizes fast ascents and class-leading downhill performance.

Tour1 is significantly lighter than Pure3, DPS’ flagship construction.
Whereas Pure3 is ultimate in advanced ultra-powerful carbon ski technology, Tour1 skis are comparable in weight to the lightest backcountry-specific touring skis on the market while offering competitive differentiation by exhibiting superior, class-leading torsional stiffness, unmatched edge grip and dampening via a proprietary new Tour1 specific aerospace carbon laminate.

Tour1 Highlights:

+ Tour1 is torsionally softer and more forgiving than Pure3 to mirror the performance bandwidth of laterally softer touring boots.
+ Tour1 is less powerful, has a lower top-end speed range, and is less damp than Pure 3, but is much more powerful and has better edge grip than competitive touring specific skis on the market.
+ Tour1 construction features: Full Cap, Balsa Core, Aerospace specific prepreg carbon laminate.

Tour1 lineup:

Wailer 112RP2 Tour1: 168, 178, 184cm (1510g per ski)
Wailer 99 Tour1: 168, 176, 184cm (1410g per ski)
Cassiar 95 Tour1: 168, 178cm (1375g per ski).
