The touring ski incarnation of the legendary Wailer from top-level ski shapers – DPS.

The DPS Wailer 99 shape has a reputation which precedes itself – boasting a long line of awards and accolades to its name. Now reimagined in the Wailer 99 Tour1, it becomes an ultra-lightweight touring ski that offers nimble and precise downhill performance.

Versatile touring performance

Flexing just a touch over mid-flex, the Wailer 99 Tour1 are best suited to advanced intermediates and above who want a versatile but high performance free-touring ski, capable of handling long tours whilst maximising your fun and the way down.

Lightweight construction that packs a punch

Built using DPS’s Tour1 construction, this edition of the Wailer 99 has a super-lightweight balsa wood core, layered with a hybrid pre-preg carbon and fibreglass laminates. The result is a backcountry build that’s as comfortable with fast ascents as it is with downhill ripping. These sticks are comparable in weight to the lightest backcountry-specific touring skis on the market, without compromising on torsional stiffness or edge hold.

Backcountry benefits

The fully capped polyamide topsheet features a textured finish which snow struggles to adhere to –  this makes it particularly good in fresh snow which can accumulate on top of skis. Known for being the fastest available, the Wailer 99 Tour features a fully sintered P-Tex base that ensures maximum speed and agility. High level of wax absorption, abrasion resistance and durability let your skis glide up the skin track for years to come.

Smooth, intuitive turning

DPS Paddle Tech profile 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 and camber profile that helps the ski to stay catch-free at the contact points for float in deep snow, whilst the camber underfoot keeps the ski obedient and precise on icy or wind-scoured snowpack.

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.
