The DPS Pagoda Piste 90 RP is the first DPS ski that applies the RP shape to a double-digit waist-width ski size. Now that lively powder skiing style of the RP [that created an RP cult-classic following] can be translated to the world of hard-snow on-piste skiing. The RP shape redefined modern ski design by pairing a progressively rockered tip with a tapered tail to create a 'five-point' sidecut. This shape makes skiing playful and pivoty. So now you can wiggle through trees or serpentine with ease across a monster mogul field. Take these skis out when you want to race through challenging conditions with maneuverability and agility. The Pagoda Piste 90 RP is the ideal on-resort, do-it-all ski for everything but powder surfing.
What's inside the Pagoda Piste line up? The ski starts with a core of two hardwoods (Ash and Aspen) with varying densities and grain orientations. The wood combination maximizes energy feedback in the ski without the addition of metal. The core is layered both above and below with pre-preg (this means that the carbon fiber is pre-impregnated with resin to create more uniform properties and performance) full laminate carbon fiber. The addition of carbon fiber gives the ski an extreme level of liveliness and energy. To counter the 'chatter' that comes with carbon fiber, DPS developed a new full wrap PU sidewall that helps dampen the ski and absorb vibration. This full wrap sidewall will also greatly contribute to the durability of the Pagoda Piste skis. The final product of this ski manufacturing masterpiece is a stable, energetic construction that will make you feel like a Ferrari on the resort, just be careful not to stack up too many speeding tickets.
The RP shape is notorious for fun. New for the 20/21 season: DPS is going with two color options in the Pagoda Piste line. The 90 RP comes in a slew of different colors and sizes: yellow and orange, and six lengths ranging from 152 cm to 184 cm.
