Watch the first footage of the DPS Spoon in action

Press Release: SALT LAKE CITY, UT (September 28, 2011)—DPS Skis, the world’s leader in carbon fiber ski manufacturing, is pleased to release the first video footage of the DPS Spoon in action– the most powerful and revolutionary powder ski ever built. In a similar spirit, DPS is kicking-off the Factory First Spoon Contest on Facebook.

With speculation about whether the convex DPS Spoon is a marketing hoax or a legitimate new shaping technology, enter the first recorded footage of the Spoon in action. Shot behind Alta, UT in March 2011, Stephan Drake puts the Spoon through its paces, in deep north-facing snow.

The result is a quick teaser showing the paradigm shift that is Spoon skiing. There is very little up-and-down, short radius bobbing movement like the powder footage that is all too common these days on center-mounted skis. In its place: incredibly fast, slarving, angulated skiing in bottomless conditions that brings powerful, reeling, and vertical sprays.

Overall, the DPS Spoon defies convention. It’s singularly meant for deep powder skiing—and nothing else. Think deep, untracked touring, heli, or snowcat days for skiers who understand angulation and planing. The Spoon is huge, fully rockered, has a convex base, and six downward-facing cleats.

The Spoon moves ski design into a complex world of four dimensions where shape, rocker, base convexity, and cleats all must work together in synergistic design. Its proprietary and radical design delivers massive flotation, nimble handing, and huge sprays. It will forever change the way you ride deep powder.

A formal launch date for the Spoon has yet to be released, but it’s getting closer.
When the Factory First Spoon is ready, DPS will randomly select a winner. Entering the Factory First DPS Spoon Contest is simple: ‘Like’ the DPS Facebook page (facebook.com/dpsskis).
