Product details: DPS Foundation Koala 118 22/23 Skis
Born from the urge to paint your own picture on the mountain, the newly redesigned DPS Koala 118 is an entirely fresh shape with a freestyle-first attitude.
The latest take on the flagship twin-tip turns the mountain into your personal powder park, with a revised rocker profile to enable perfectly-centered landings to bolts. The softer flex is more progressive than its predecessor to unlock nose and tail butters in deep snow, rollers, and stomped-out lips alike.
Staying true to the skis’ big-mountain roots, we utilize best-in-class lumber within the ski’s construction to provide uncompromising suspension characteristics. Carbon stringers supply enhanced torsional stiffness, but weight was not a factor in the design process to ensure unwavering stability at eyewatering speeds.
Rocker ~ 40 % / Effective Edge ~60 %
Employing best-in-class components from start-to-finish, weight was not a factor during the design process. Triaxial fiberglass wraps the bamboo and poplar bi-phase wood core, while unidirectional carbon stringers add torsional stiffness. The result is an on-snow feel that produces a wonderful blend of power and dampness, and is readily accessible to a wide range of skier profiles. Every model in the Foundation series shares DPS’ C2 and RP chassis shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-to-shape and length-to-length.
