In an era of bigger skis dominating lift lines and skin tracks, how about a ski with both the flotation and the hard snow prowess? The DPS Zelda 106 Foundation drives down the fall line of your favorite lift-served bowl, and carves you back down the groomers to the bar for apres. And if you're feeling feisty, take it on your next hut trip and watch your friends envy those turns through the deep glades.
The flatter turned-up-tail profile of the 106 also delivers a snappier exit from your turns, in both hard and soft conditions.
The Foundation platform is a futuristic construction that results in impressive performance at a lower price point. Mixing unidirectional carbon, triaxial fiberglass, bamboo and poplar, and featuring world cup race bases, you can expect really strong performance without the higher price tag. Meanwhile, the Foundation will feel damper, smoother, and more forgiving than the Alchemist, yet also less reactive and energetic.
