    Only the human-powered need apply.

    DPS' M.O. is to pick a killer shape and camber profile, then build several skis with different cores and laminates so you can choose the one with the characteristics that best suit you. The Wailer 112 RP2 Tour1 Aki, for example, is a quiver-of-one pow ski with a solid amount of tip rocker, moderate underfoot camber, and a generously raised tail, finished off with a manageable sidecut that lets you move from variable to soft snow and alter your turn shapes without skipping a beat.

    Of course, this isn't just any 112RP2, it's the 112RP2 Tour1. Huh? Essentially, it sports all the above characteristics, but it's built with DPS' Tour1 construction, which is designed specifically for lightweight backcountry-oriented skis. DPS has a reputation for lightness across the board, but its legendary Pure3 construction was always designed to be skied inbounds, while Tour1 is explicitly meant for those who primarily earn their own turns. Accordingly, the 112 RP2 Tour1 is built on a superlight balsa wood core sandwiched between pre-preg carbon fiber and fiberglass laminates and topped off with a lightweight cap, which gives the ski a category-crushing combination of weight savings and torsional stiffness and avoids the squirrely, skittish feeling of many other lightweight touring boards.

    DPS has monkeyed with the shape of 112RP2, too, giving it a larger sweet spot that serves up a stable feel whether you're riding cautiously or hitting near-irresponsible speeds. Its Paddle Tech sidecut tapers at the rocker contact points for smooth, hook-free turns, and the rockered tip and tail make sure the ski's killer soft-snow performance is unchanged. There's also enough camber underfoot to cut through hardpack, chunder, and wind-hammered snow like it's no big deal. DPS finished the 112RP2 Tour1 off with its standard tough and lightning-fast World Cup bases and narrow-gauge Rockwell 48 steel edges for extra weight savings, and capped the whole package with snow-shedding textured topsheets so you don't have to lug extra ounces up with you.

    One Big Sweet Spot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the ski in my quiver that sees the most days of use. They can pretty much do anything, and really shine anytime there is some snow to push around; that can be a few inches of wet corn or a few feet of blower pow! I've heard some complain that they felt the ski was unstable at high speeds and they couldn't get their "charge" on, but that's not what this ski is designed for. If you tend to make less turns and like to straight line, then look to the Wailer 112 RPC. On the other hand if you like to make tight turns, wide turns, big turns, little turns, hop turns, carving turns, just about any turn you can think of, then this ski is for you. It's very forgiving, has a huge sweet spot and is a playful ski to ski. The Tour 1 construction saves all the weight and gives up nothing in performance. I actually felt like I gained fitness my first few days on this ski!

    One Big Sweet Spot

    The ultimate lightweight touring ski!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Shave weight, not performance. DPS continues to deliver the goods when it comes to lightweight, high performance skis. The 112RP2 Tour 1 skis will not disappoint when it comes to traveling fast and light in the backcountry. Mounted these with Dynafit TLT Super Lite bindings, making my setup the lightest I've ever used. At first I was concerned the reduced weight would impact downhill performance, but that is not the case at all. Uphill performance is absolutely amazing, with no concerns. From short half day tours to long slogs, they are amazing and fast. For the downhill, they smear, slarve, slice and dice soft snow and pow very well. No concerns here either. In pow they'll leave a smile on your face for days. The skis have a really nice sweet spot and the learning curve in figuring that sweet spot out is pretty quick. They are a bit turny, but that bodes well for skiing through tighter trees. Chop, crud, boilerplate, and all of that other type of snow you try to avoid can be a bit more challenging, but manageable. The carbon and adequate torsional stiffness allow you to power through some of this challenging snow as long as you stay on top of them by driving the skis. The skis are very well made and feel durable. The top sheets are very resistant to chipping and hold up to the abuse of backcountry skiing very well. There's really nothing bad to say about these skis as they are a game changer. Go further, longer, and have more fun while doing so!

    Go Anywhere

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I had the opportunity to ski on these last season for a day of touring, and they were amazing. The are super light at about 8 lbs a pair, have great float with that 112mm waist, but still have great power transition and turn. You can seriously take this ski anywhere.

    Go Anywhere

    Unbelievable Ski

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Three in NW backcountry skiing and the DPS tour 1 have been outstanding. It almost cheating with these skis. They turn on a dime and light enough to climb all today.

    Unbelievable Ski

    Nothing But Fun!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You know it's going to be a good day when you are pulling these out. These float through soft snow, whether it's pow or facets, like nothing else. The early rise and carbon construction allow this ski to plow through surface crusts like an ice-breaker ship. Nothing stops 'em. For touring on the deep days, there is nothing better out there.

    This is your touring ski

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I spent most of last winter and spring touring on the Wailer 112RP2 Tour1. It's amazing how strong it performs on the down, given its pixy weight and ease of glide in the skin track. From pow, to corn, to resort laps they outperformed any lightweight touring ski I've ridden to date.
