DPS' special edition graphic this year features a fading honeycomb design for a limited number of the new Alchemist skis. The Yvette's purple honeycomb over pink is our favorite rendition of this design.
The most award winning shape in the DPS lineup gets an upgrade with the Alchemist construction. The Yvette and Wailer 112 have been lauded for their combination ease and power depending on the shape of the turn, snow and terrain. This is achieved with generous amounts of rocker in both tip and tail for playfulness in deeper snow. The 112 also has an aggressive sidecut, camber under foot and high torsional stiffness to grip firmer snow conditions and maintain edge hold at high speeds.
The new Alchemist construction address vibration chatter and overly stiff mid-sections often found in carbon skis. The carbon layup is now vibration tuned to give the Yvette a more damp ride while maintaining pop. The shaping of the Alchemist skis gives a more even flex around the boot for a more precise and smoother feel throughout the turn shape. These changes keep all of the strengths of prior Yvettes, while improving the ride in variable snow conditions
Shrink it and pink it for women's ski? No shrinking here, the Yvette has the same construction and power as the men's Wailer 112. Pink it- why not? And throw a little purple honeycomb for good measure. The new Yvette 112 Alchemist features an even greater sweet spot geared for optimal high-speed and crud performance with this special edition model.
