What is better than having a pair of skis that can float effortlessly above bottomless powder at the top of the mountain and be able to carve through the crud at lower elevations? Even though we all crave those ski-movie-days of first tracks down a huge face on the freshest, lightest snow on Earth, we know that the reality of backcountry skiing consists primarily of less than perfect snow on any given run. The Lotus 124 skis were built to handle the realities of backcountry skiing. DPS created a ski with unique construction characteristics to allow it to float in powder, as it is 124 mm underfoot, but also to plane and carve in mixed snow. DPS merged an Aspen wood core with its Tour1 carbon technology and merged that with a flex pattern and UHMW sidewalls that are designed to guide the ski through less than perfect conditions. At 1935 grams, these are not the lightest skis in the fleet, but rest assured that you get a great all around ski and, due to the Tour1 technology, one that is 30% lighter and 30% torsionally stiffer than the competition.
- More forward mount than any previous Lotus
- Maximum versatility for a 120mm class ski
- Aerospace Tech: Carbon/Glass construction makes this 30% lighter than any comparable ski
