The DPS Wailer A106 C2 is an all-mountain neoclassic. Neoclassic you say? Yes - DPS created a new, modern skiing style with this ski's reinvented shape and construction. DPS has worked hard in the lab and on-mountain to fine-tune the ideal sidecut and flex pattern in order to provide for a more playful, surfy style of skiing. As opposed to initiating and finishing a turn in a traditional manner, the DPS Wailer is able to wash out turns, kicking up rooster tails that even have snowboards gawking in envy. The 106 has plenty of tip rocker, gradual tail rise and a moderate camber underfoot - a shape designed to accommodate to any terrain or snow conditions. The DPS Wailer A106 C2 will keep you capitalizing on every ski day (backcountry or mechanized) from November to May. Mount one up and you'll be shocked at how little you'll reach for anything else.
The Salomon SHIFT combines the uphill efficiency of a pin system and the downhill performance of a fully DIN certified binding. The Shift offers skiers the best of both worlds with both downhill and uphill performance. At first glance the binding looks like a standard alpine get up, but using a simple lever in the toe, the binding transforms into an uphill machine. The tech toes offer 90 degrees of pivoting motion and the advantage of only lifting the weight of the boot while touring. Couple that with an easy step-in system, lightweight construction, and up to 10 degrees of climbing aid, this binding slays on the uphill. However, what truly sets this binding apart is what it's capable of on the downhill. Salomon has created a tech binding that is fully DIN certified - the first in its class. The Shift has also been engineered with Multi Norm Certification (MNC), making it the only hybrid binding compatible with every Norm boot on the market. Salomon knocked it out of the park with this technological masterpiece - get your hands on the Shift, and go shred some mountain.
