Looking for a more affordable version of DPS' popular Cassiar ski? This 94mm Foundation platform ski will charge the frontside with the best of them. With a little more heft, it will provide a more dampened feel while still snapping out of the turns with traditional camber and flatter tails. Mount these up with alpine bindings or mix it up with a touring binding and use them for both front and backcountry!
The Foundation platform is a futuristic construction that results in impressive performance at a lower price point. Mixing unidirectional carbon, triaxial fiberglass, bamboo and poplar, and featuring world cup race bases, you can expect really strong performance without the higher price tag. Meanwhile, the Foundation will feel damper, smoother, and more forgiving than the Alchemist, yet also less reactive and energetic.
At 1745g (171cm), this is not out of the running as an affordable backcountry machine. And with an appropriately matched touring binding, this could be your one-ski in-bounds and backcountry quiver!
