    Yahoo—sugar high.

    You don't have to be the owner of an acutely sensitive sweet tooth in order to understand how saccharine the DPS Wailer 106 Pure3 Ski truly is. Designed to deliver rollerblade-like turns and an edge-to-edge sensation so responsive you'll forget that effort is required when initiating turns (though, don't wrangle yourself into the backseat or you'll regret it), the Wailer 106 Pure3 is something of an all-mountain ski that pushes through crud, powder, and varied terrain alike.

    First and foremost, the Wailer 106 Pure3 boasts a pretty fabulous sweet spot, starting with its 106mm width waist, which ultimately makes it versatile enough to handle a day at the resort or the backcountry. And unlike its sibling counterparts in the Wailer line, this ski features a slightly more traditional shape (i.e. a partial twin tip design) and more true-to-size construction that further plays up its versatility—not to mention its mounting point isn't as far back as say the 112 or 99. Speaking of mounting points, the newly debuted Chassis construction optimizes on your center of gravity and creates a harmonious relationship (and therefore smooth turn initiation) between the innate flex pattern of the ski and the tapered sidecut technology, so you're able to really feel and revel in your skiing experience.

    Now, that's all good and fun, but the true genius lay within the Wailer's Pure3 core. This no-nonsense technology is fashioned with carbon fiber laminates and aspen wood core that not only make it 30% lighter than conventional core constructions, but also 30% torsionally stiffer and therefore stronger and more powerful. Combine the wood and carbon fiber with the wide profile, Rockwell 48 steel edges, UHMW sidewalls, and World Cup race bases, and you've got yourself a recipe for seriously sticky-sweet fun, not to mention a hooting-and-hollering good time—regardless of whether or not the conditions are prime, which preferably, they are.

    Best Skis Ever

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are a great all around quiver of one ski. Early rise tip floats in the powder. Progressive paddle tech design allows easy transitions from short to long radius turns and slarvabilty. Works on groomers and Moguls. Stable at speed. More responsive and less forgiving than the Wailer 112 design and also a little less flotation - which I like because hey - what's the point of deep snow if you are not in it :) Only downside is they are a bit heavy for touring in the Pure 3 build. Have not tried the tour build to compare.

    First Experience with DPS

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super stoked on my first season riding on DPS. So far, I've spent a fair amount of time in both the backcountry and the resort riding only these skis with a pair of Radical ST 2.0 bindings. Winning combo to say the least. 10/10 would purchase again.

    I Love these Skis

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    DPS very quietly released these skis in Jan 2016, which is when i picked up a pair. The short review is that they are amazing.

    I have used these skis in all conditions (ie, hardpack, New England ice, powder, touring, in the trees), and they are amazing in all conditions. I can easily and confidently carve with these skis when conditions are icy. When the conditions are good, the skis are very responsive, easy to control, and are super fun to ride. In tight trees with powder, these skis really shine. Very agile and again easy to control. In open powder, it is like skiing a cloud.

    I mounted Radical 2.0 bindings, and touring is fantastic. Enough said.

    In closing, these are great skis. I went with the Pure3 construction because I sometimes prefer a little extra dampness in less than ideal snow conditions ( it is def worth the little bit of extra weigh). If you want/need to save some weight, then consider the Tour1 construction.

    Wailer 106 the quiver !!!!!

      HI, the Wailer 106 is extremely versatile. I used on every snow this last season in South America, Mendoza, Las leñas. Very fast short turns in powder and a very good hold in stiff terrain. I love it. It is what I was looking for to pair it with my DPS Lotus 120
