Lightweight and surfy, the DPS Lotus 124 Tour1 touring ski is a powder specialist that provides unreal playfulness, stability at high speed and excellent handling in variable snow conditions. The Aspen wood core interlaid with pre-preg carbon give the ski and damp and energetic feel, so you can pop and plane your way through the full spectrum of backcountry powder conditions. Weighing in at only 1,575 grams at 178cm length, the Lotus 124 tours like a dream for a ski of this width. Gone are the days of slogging your way up the skin track for a single lap in blower pow - now you're able to put in twice the vert with half the effort. If you're a mid-winter powder enthusiast and desire a supremely surfy and stable ski that won't break your energy bank to carry up the hill, then the Lotus 124 Tour1 from DPS is where it's at.
The Lotus 124 Tour1 is paired with a set of ultra functional and always reliable Dynafit ST Rotation 10 bindings. Built to provide safety, performance and durability, the Rotation 10 weighs in at 608 grams per binding with plenty of boot sole length adjustment and three touring heel riser heights so you can dial in the appropriate angle for your ascent. The gapless heel turret means the binding provides forward pressure to your boot when in ski-mode, which means awesome power transmission and control to your skis.
It's worth considering adding DPS Phantom Treatment to the package - Phantom is permanent waxless base glide cooked up between the University of Utah and DPS Skis that ensures a never-wax-again glide for the lifetime of the skis. Basically, during the application process the treatment percolates into the honeycomb structure of the base and binds at a molecular level when cured under UV light. The result is permanent glide performance that works really well across all snow temperatures. Also, a big perk for touring specific skis is that you don't have to worry about peeling away hot-wax from the ski base every time you apply and remove your skins, subsequently drying out the bases much faster. With Phantom, you feasibly never have to apply wax again.
This closeout package purchase includes a free binding installation (the bindings are not yet mounted to the skis). If you need climbing skins as well, we can make a recommendation and trim them to fit so everything is ready to go upon arrival to you.
