Wailer A106 C2 Ski
Out of every plank in DPS's best-selling Wailer collection, the Wailer A106 C2 Ski is one of the most aggressive options for all-mountain riding. It boasts DPS's damp Alchemist Pure Carbon construction in a powerful C2 chassis that gives more edge control and a longer turn radius ideal for advanced skiers looking for better stability and a faster ride. The Wailer's versatile profile includes a 106mm waist that should handle most snow conditions at the resort on any given day, from pow days to bluebird grooming.
To ensure all of these designs work as intended DPS built this ski with their highest quality resort layup, Alchemist. Alchemist consists of carbon fiber layers sandwiched around an Aspen core with full length sidewalls. This creates a durable, responsive, and lightweight package that will grow your confidence with every turn. Unlike most skis with carbon layers, the Alchemist uses preimpregnated carbon to ensure an infinite flex that never breaks down. It keeps weight at a minimum and stiffness to the max, and there are vibration-dampening tips to cut down the chatter at high speeds.
- This DPS best-selling backcountry ski is now stiffer and lighter
- Versatile 106mm waist width rides mixed snow on or off piste
- C2 chassis gives a sharp edge hold and a moderate 19m turn radius
- Rocker in tip and tail maneuvers through deeper snow

- Preimpregnated carbon ensures infinite flex that never breaks down
- Designed with love in Salt Lake City, Utah
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier 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.
