Tester's Review

A firm believer in the strength, pop, feel, and, above all, weight of carbon over other common materials like fiberglass and metal, DPS touts its weight-saving pre-preg carbon-laminate technology above all else. The techy skis come at a cost, but the performance is undeniable. Testers found the playful Wailer to exhibit an impressive blend of quickness and strength. Its short turn radius and paddle-like tip proved useful through undulating terrain and ever-changing snow conditions. On the groomed, it withstood aggressive carving. "This ski didn't make you think too hard," said one. "It really pushes the perception of all-mountain."
