General Description: New for the 16-17 season, DPS’ Wailer 106 sports a redesigned rocker profile to retain the aspects you love about the 112 and 99 (floaty, playful), but also work in the benefits of the 105 (damp, charger). The rocker profile is now shallower, but extends deeper into the ski. This means the ski is essentially pre-bent into the ideal radius for turns, allowing the ski to use more of the edge and hence provide increased grip.
Basically the ski is a blend between the playful shape of the 112 and the aggressive charger shape of the 105, resulting in a ski that not only planes easily in powder but is keen to rip big carve turns at high speed too.
With the Foundation construction, you’ve got the renowned DPS performance in a package that will be a little kinder on your bank balance The Bamboo/Poplar core combined with Fibreglass and Carbon results in a ski with a predictable flex pattern, that is light enough to be highly manoeuvrable while being damp and heavy enough to be versatile in choppier conditions. The Foundation construction will feel a little easier to ski in comparison to DPS’ other builds.
