As the physical body evolves, the spirit begins to develop what can become a lifelong taste for deep, wild snow. At 99mm underfoot, combined with substantial tip and tail rocker, the result is surfy flow in powder. This is the gateway ski into the world of deep snow riding. Log some days on the Grom 99, and when the time is right, graduate to the land of Lotus 124s, Lotus 138s, and Spoons.
DPS Foundation: a supremely damp, powerful, and durable construction.
Employing best-in-class components from start-to-finish, weight was not a factor during the design process. Triaxial fiberglass wraps the bamboo and poplar bi-phase wood core, while unidirectional carbon stringers add torsional stiffness. The result is an on-snow feel that produces a wonderful blend of power and dampness, and is readily accessible to a wide range of skier profiles. Every model in the Foundation series shares DPS’ C2 and RP chassis shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-to-shape and length-to-length.
