If you like to get off the beaten track in search of powder yet still enjoy doing high-speed piste laps, then the Pagoda 100 RP deserves your attention. Its 100mm waist is supremely stable whatever the conditions and the full length pre-preg carbon ensures the ski comes alive on firm snow. This construction and 15m radius make it feel light and responsive in a way unlike any other 100mm ski. The long nose profile refines the ride when it’s choppy snow and gives silky smooth floatation when you find powder.


Terrain Type & Ability Level

Terrain Type
The 100 simply works whatever the conditions. It carves and cruises on pistes a like a top-end ski, and thanks to the width and construction it deals with any conditions when you get it off-piste. In powder the rocker and RP shaping create effortless turns. This is the ski to take when you need something to work everywhere.

Skier Type
Advanced and expert skiers wanting all condition performance from one ski. It may be easy to ski but it does also have a huge performance range thanks to the high-tech construction. The shape and flex make it more on the playful side than powerful, but this doesn’t mean it isn’t lively or responsive.


Overview

Shape
The RP shape is both surfy and intuitive. The tapered tip and tail initiate turns effortlessly and allows them to be exited with clean carves or easily washed out. 100mm provides impressive float when you find soft snow, working with the shape to allow the ski to flow through turns in powder and keep a fun. surfy feel even when the snow isn’t deep or you’re on groomers. The turny 15m radius feels great on firmer snow and helps create the flowing feel in softer conditions.

Rocker
Rocker at the tip and tail equates to 45% rocker. Sounds like a lot but it works perfectly with the shaping. The camber underfoot makes the most of the carbon construction and playful 15m radius.

Core
Fabricated with 2 hard wood species, ash and aspen, of disparate densities and grain orientations, that are laminated horizontally to give a stable, solid ride.

Construction
The DPS R&D team have engineered a construction with a horizontally combined core, innovative new sidewall technology and carbon layers to produce a supremely damp and stable platform. The result is a breakthrough in on-snow feel that combines both excitement and liveliness, with simultaneous dampness and control.


Key Features

RP Shaping
The RP chassis started with the first Wailer 112 RP design that incorporated generous tip/tail rocker and taper. RP originally stood for ‘Resort Powder', and the legend began. Its shape opens doors and makes truly versatile powder planing accessible to many. The RP's core shaping equation is impressive, 45% rocker merged with a 15m sidecut and means natural, intuitive skiing.

Pagoda
In 2005, DPS introduced the world's first carbon-fibre sandwich ski. In the 15 years since, they've obsessed over tuning carbon fibre to create the perfect ski that, in turn, produces the perfect apex moment. Carbon has always enjoyed numerous advantages over its fibreglass and metal ski counterparts, namely a superior combination of light weight and power. Its weakness has been damping, achieving a quiet ride at high speeds and on hard snow is carbon's kryptonite. For well over a decade, DPS have experimented tirelessly with a myriad of solutions to solve the damping equation. Enter Pagoda. Pagoda is a monumental breakthrough in carbon ski construction. It delivers a truly unprecedented level of damping without sacrificing the lightweight, power, and edge grip for which carbon has long been known. The result is a higher level of positive sensations and performance satisfaction.


EB tester’s comments: Chris (Covent Garden) Floated very well, for something only 100 underfoot it felt much wider. Amazing piste handling and performance for its width, a fantastic option for someone looking for an all-mountain ski that is soft snow focused.
