Wailer F106 C2 Ski
If there was any problem with the original Wailer, it was that the ski would only really wail when conditions were soft; otherwise, it sort of felt like the terrain would wail on you instead of vice versa. DPS upgraded the Wailer F106 C2 Ski to wail on any terrain in just about any condition. Its 106mm waist width, rockered tip, and slightly rockered tail certainly thrive in fresh powder, but camber underfoot ensures edge control on those less-than-powdery days.
Unique to this Wailer Ski is DPS' new Foundation construction, which employs the finest ingredients in order to perform on any terrain with ease. The core blends poppy poplar with shock-absorbing bamboo, and there are stiff carbon and flexible fiberglass inserts that work together to diversify your performance on any terrain. The high graphite World Cup race base ensures a speedy right, while the textured top sheet prevents snow from building up and weighing you down.

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.
