The key to Pagoda Tour’s performance is both in the choice of materials and how they are layered. By mating DPS’ proprietary new carbon laminate with a combination of ash and paulownia woods, and a purpose-built aerospace grade foam – that features incredible physical properties at minimal weight – a special alchemy emerges. The result is a distinct combination of power, energy, and dampness that rivals front-side oriented skis at classic touring weights.
The best untracked snow is worth walking for. Long uphills in the traditionally deep climates of Japan or interior British Columbia will become quick ascents, leaving you ample energy for top-to-bottom laps, day after day. Not only will your legs thank you for the energy savings, but your mind will meld with its surroundings during blurringly fast and floaty descents. Transform the skin track into a powder escalator with the award-winning 112 RP shape.
