DPS Carbon Pagoda Tour 100 2024
### DPS says: ###With its unique rocker profile, the playful and floaty 100 RP is available in a tour-specific offering, specifically optimized for the full range of backcountry conditions you might encounter.
The new Pagoda Tour 100 RP will quickly become our most nimble, versatile backcountry ski, offering unrivaled float for a 100mm waist width. The playful RP shaping characteristics lend predictable, intuitive turns in a lightweight ski that is equally at home on low-angle meadows and steep, committing couloirs. The Pagoda Tour 100 RP is perfect for backcountry skiers who get out and amongst the mountains no matter the conditions.
Featuring our updated Pagoda Tour construction and the new Third Rail technology, the playful yet predictable nature of the Pagoda Tour 100 offers plenty of suspension for slashing, drifting, and pressing that is unprecedented for skis in this waist width and weight category.
Following the highly acclaimed launch of our performance-focused tour construction technology in 2020, this year we are introducing the second generation of the Pagoda Tour Construction. While still maintaining the industry’s lightest performance-to-weight ratio, this new generation of touring skis are damper and more stable than previous iterations. Primarily due to our new Third Rail Technology, this new and improved platform is also more durable than its predecessor, due to improved integration between the hybrid wood/foam core and our new bio-based sidewall material. This new Algal Sidewall Technology features 63 percent bio content sourced from a microalgae. This bio-oil is derived and formulated for its damping characteristics, bend strength, impact resistance, machinability, and bonding -- resulting in a highly customizable, more environmentally friendly material that we use to create more stable and durable skis. Utilizing our new Third Rail technology and better sidewall integration, Gen 2 Pagoda Tour skis are damper and more stable, more durable, and a step forward on our journey toward better sustainability.
