100% Made in Utah, USA
Although not many products are made in the USA anymore, we are proud to know that DPS manufactures their Pure3 line of skis in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains in beautiful Utah. Naturally, product testing occurs right out the front door from where these skis are made.
World’s first (and only) prepreg carbon fiber ski
Are Formula One cars made of balsa wood and fiberglass? Nope. What are the world’s most advanced structures made of nowadays? They’re made of pre-preg carbon fiber, just like DPS’s line of Pure3 skis.
Why pre-preg carbon fiber? The process allows DPS to use as little epoxy resin as possible in the finished ski. Less resin means a lighter and stronger ski designed specifically for powerful, technical skiers.
Transcendental in the pow
With enough snow, and these skis on your feet, you might just think that you’re flying. The float of provided by skis with Pure3 construction is unreal. With how easily they turn, you’ll be hard pressed to wipe that grin off of your face.

Let me preface this review with i purchased the RP2 which is an expansion of the RP line and i've only got a couple early season days on them. Overall been really impressed with the ski so far. Its extremely light (mounted with Dynafit FT bindings) which makes it great for touring. Other ski is a traditional camber so going to a DPS rocker is a bit of an adjustment but having less rocker in the front reduces the chatter and makes the transition easier. They preformed excellent in the November storms with great flotation and handled the crud fairly well. Overall really like the ski so far and pumped to use it on deep powder days.
