The DPS Powderworks Lotus 115 RPC is the quintessential shredder's ski. To celebrate DPS's 15 year anniversary, they've not only created yet another cutting edge construction but included limited-edition top sheets that are sure to turn heads on the hill.
For the Powderworks Lotus 115 RPC, DPS has taken the classic 112 Wailer shape and made some adjustments for the ripping skier looking to go fast and furious on all types of piste. The popular RP shape was tweaked to create the RPC: Resort Powder Charger. The RPC shape is designed to ski more in the fall line, with a more shallow turn shape, and with a longer effective edge length. The ski is widened at the waist by 3mm without increasing the tip and tail width. In addition, the tip and tail rocker have been slightly lowered to increase the top speed. By making the ski more flat, the ski essentially planes easier and deflects less. All of these design features and characteristics add up to give you better stability at higher speeds - hence the Charger edition to the acronym.
The RPC construction also features an experimental core based on the new Pagoda Piste construction. Essentially, the Powderworks Lotus 115 RPC is the testbed for the next generation of Alchemist construction! Less than 100 pairs of this ski are pressed every year, which truly exemplifies the limited edition aspect of a unique ski built by-and-for skiers. Get your hands on a pair to see a glimpse of the hard-charging DPS future.
The Powderworks Lotus 115 RPC comes in two lengths: 186cm and 192cm. Both have a 20m turn radius.
