The Wailer family of skis are considered the most useable, all mountain, all season skis in DPS’s range. The four models within, and their female counterparts, are among some of the most decorated skis in the snowsports industry, boasting awards and accolades from some of the most respected testers and media outlets.

The DPS Wailer 99 shape has a reputation which precedes itself, boasting a long line of awards and accolades to its name. The touring incarnation, the Wailer 99 Tour1 only serves to add to this thanks to its ultra-lightweight construction yet nible and precise performance.

Flexing just a touch over mid-flex, they’re best suited to advanced intermediates and above who want a versatile but high performance free-touring ski which can handle long tours and maximise your fun and the way down.

Built using DPS’s Tour1 construction, comprised of a super-lightweight balsa wood core which is layered with a hybrid pre-preg carbon and fibreglass laminate on top and beneath. The result is a lightweight backcountry build that’s as comfortable with fast ascents as it is with downhill performance. DPS’s Tour1skis are comparable in weight to the lightest backcountry-specific touring skis on the market without compromising on torsional stiffness or edge hold thangs to the aerospace grade carbon laminates.

The fully capped polyamide topsheet features a textured finish which snow struggles to adhere to, this makes it particularly good in fresh snow which has a tendency to accumulate on top of skis. When touring through snow-fields or in heavy snow this piling can drastically affect stamina and speed so by shedding this built-up snow the skis don’t become cumbersome or unmanageable.

Known for being the fastest bases available, the Wailer 99 Tour features a fully sintered, World Cup level race P-Tex. This ensures maximum speed and agility, while the high level of wax absorption, abrasion resistance and durability means the base retains excellent gliding characteristics throughout the life of the ski.

The Wailer 99 Tour also features hardened Rockwell 48 steel alloy edges with a narrower race profile, this creates less drag than standard edges meaning the ski stays faster through the turn.

A tapered, flatter sidecut section, known as Paddle Tech, blends the radius into the contact points to give the ski a uniquely smooth and intuitive feel. This is then topped off with a hybrid rocker/camber profile, a blend of reverse camber in the nose and tail with traditional camber underfoot. The rocker helps the ski to stay catch-free at the contact points and aids float in deep snow, while the camber underfoot keeps the ski obedient and precise on icy or wind-scoured snowpack.

What we say: “With its user friendly waist width and super-light construction, the Wailer 99 Tour1 represents the tech-pinnacle of what’s possible in a free-touring ski. Ideal for longer days of touring without compromising its downhill performance, it’s the perfect blend of ascent and descent performance.”

Size Guide

The size chart below provides a basic guide to finding the right ski length based on your height and ability but there are several other factors you should consider before choosing your new skis!

The two most relevant considerations when interpreting the chart below are your weight and the type of skiing you intend to do. 

Weight: If you’re a heavier built that the average person of your height then we suggest choosing a longer ski as a heavier skier requires more edge to grip the snow and more base area for floatation in powder and cruddy snow.  Conversely, if you’re a slimmer build you may want to consider going for a shorter ski as you’ll need less edge / ski to support your weight than someone of an ‘average’ build.

Skier Type: Secondly, if you want a ski that’s going to inspire confidence when you’re skiing fast and you like to ski faster than most, then a longer ski is going to be preferable.   The additional edge and float provided by a longer ski will give you a more stable ride.  If, however, you’re more freestyle focussed and you want a ski that’s going to be more nimble and easier to manoeuvre at low speeds then a slightly shorter ski will work better for you as there will be less ski to manage.

If you have any queries at all on finding the right ski or ski size for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for further advice.
