Wide skis for the deepest days - the Lotus 124 is designed to float, but to improve on the old lotus 120 DPS brought a new level of versatility to the fat ski category.
At 124mm underfoot it’s obvious that these are powder skis, but there's much more to how a ski performs than its width. A 149mm tip makes the front of the ski drastically more buoyant than the rest of the sticks, and the result is an unsinkable feeling no matter how hard you drive them. Tip taper, or reverse sidecut, brings the widest point of the ski back from the tip and closer to the middle of the ski by a few inches for a very predictable feel with no hang-ups in chop. The spooned tip helps with this as well by creating a soft edge along the tip of the ski.
Alchemist construction is the progression of DPS’s experience working with prepreg carbon. The result is a light ski with a refined flex. Strategically placed dampening materials help to reduce chatter in spite of the lightweight construction. The Lotus 124 is a powder ski, but it still maintains a section of camber underfoot. When paired with the increased sidecut and 23m turn radius the Lotus 124 has no trouble carving down the cat track to get back to the lift or ripping through the tracked out return to the trailhead.
