Uschi F87 C2 Ski
The DPS Women's Uschi 87 Foundation Ski craves steep hardpack and fresh corduroy, but doesn't bat an eyelash at a few inches of fresh, either. Its 87 millimeter waist is ideal for ripping groomers, and offers up just enough float to ski some powder in the trees. With a rockered tip and toned-down tail rocker, the Uschi 87 boasts easy turn initiation and a solid, powerful feel through the end of each turn. DPS's Chassis 2 sidecut design maintains a friendliness when you're charging through variable conditions, but also makes the ski aggressive at the start of each turn for quick, seamless edge-to-edge response.
Smoother and damper than DPS's other construction offerings, the Foundation construction makes the Uschi 87 ready for frontside fun. The poplar and bamboo core adds a loveable combination of stability and pop, while stiff carbon inserts maintain wonderful strength and dampening properties that contribute to the ski's flowing feel.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
