If you live in a consistently snowy region that usually delivers in centimeters or inches, not feet and meters, then the Wailers 106mm waist is an ideal central piece of your quiver. The Wailer 106 Tour1 is ultralight and polite in the skin track. Keep it broad, with one ski in your bag for a utility knife approach that delivers broad pleasure and predictable precision due to its Chassis-driven rocker and sidecut design.
Tour1 is a targeted lightweight backcountry build that emphasizes fast ascents and class-leading downhill performance. It is significantly lighter than Alchemist, DPS’ flagship construction. Whereas Alchemist is the ultimate in advanced ultra-powerful carbon ski technology, Tour1 skis are comparable in weight to the lightest backcountry-specific touring skis on the market while offering competitive differentiation by exhibiting superior, class-leading torsional stiffness, unmatched edge grip and damping via a proprietary Tour1 specific aerospace carbon laminate. Why invest energy in long tours if you are forced to ride floppy touring skis that sap the performance and fun out of the descent?
