DPS Lotus 124 Spoon Alchemist Touring Ski

$1,299.00


Description

It is hard to believe that you can take a 124 mm underfoot ski and still feel light and nimble in any condition, but the DPS Lotus makes this possible. A favorite of DPS' freeride athletes, in the new Lotus 124 Alchemist DPS makes some solid improvements to the already legendary powder surfers.
In the backcountry, you will inevitably encounter some sort of wind-board or bed surface conditions in between or on the way to those deep stashes. The new Alchemist layup incorporates maximum versatility and stability in a variety of conditions. This is achieved by the addition of flax into the aircraft grade carbon weave to provide more vibration dampening. DPS also created a more true flex pattern around the foot in the Alchemist construction by changing the thickness or the ski just outside of the mounting area. Finally the sidecut and shape are designed to create more ease in the turn, and incorporate a slightly more forward mounting point for an easier pivot.
Enough about the performance in less than ideal snow conditions, how about what these babies are designed for? Light weight skis pivot better in deep snow, provided that they are stiff enough to not fold under the weight of the snow you are planing. This is where DPS nails it with a lighter but stiff ski, created by using the pre preg carbon sandwich over an aspen core. No its not rando light, and no it's not metal top sheet stiff, but light enough for all but the longest tours and stiff and poppy enough to slash through open pow fields. The slight camber under foot adds to that pop. The 124mm under foot and 149 up front and aggressive tip and tail rocker makes slashing and pivoting through bottomless pow oh so dream like.
