The DPS Wailer 112 RP was a big hit at our microbrew test one year ago—the ski earned an Editor’s Pick. The Wailer 99 is based on that award-winning platform, so we guessed we’d enjoy this ski before we even strapped in. Sure enough, we did. One tester wrote, “I dig this ski big time, it’s super fun.” Another noted, “It’s a solid ski… pretty playful and handles all conditions.” Like the Nina 99, this ski comes in a Pure and Hybrid model, both are very lightweight. At 99 mm underfoot, it’s not your ideal powder ski, but its gradual rocker keeps you floating on most anything, including the worst of the chop.
