The new offering from DPS Skis this season is their Alchemist construction. DPS has always been known for its advanced ski construction and this years’ Alchemist Pure Carbon Skis are evident of that.
What sets DPS apart from other ski constructions is the materials that they use. Alchemist skis use advanced aerospace grade carbon fiber laminates that sandwich a full Aspen wood core. Along with that they use the fastest and hardest world cup race bases on every ski in the category, and wide Rockwell steel edges.
What does this all mean? It means that DPS Alchemist skis rip. The carbon/wood core keeps the skis light and damp at the same time. In the past, you needed to be an expert skier to enjoy the highest performing DPS skis. With the new construction the skis are stable but also forgiving for skiers of all categories.
As well as the performance of the skis, there is an equally important durability story. With the high grade carbon and the extra wide Rockwell steel edges, you can expect the Alchemist ski to last twice as long as your traditional ski. Sure the price tag is a little higher than a lot of other skis on the market, but the performance and durability more than make up for it.
