With its rockered tip and elongated edge contact, the 106 C2 is arguably the most versatile shape in the DPS quiver.
In the new Pagoda Tour 106 C2, the inherent adaptability of the C2 shape and 106 waist width is married with the unprecedented uphill possibilities of our updated Pagoda Tour construction. The outcome is undoubtedly the most capable touring ski we’ve ever designed; and is the only powder- specific touring shape that boasts C2 shaping, utilizing a longer turn radius to improve the ski’s ability to attack the fall line in steeper terrain. The new Pagoda Tour 106 C2 is targeted at advanced and expert skiers who value a ski-to-snow connection and directional turning style, while the updated construction makes the ski even lighter than we could have imagined.
PAGODA TOUR CONSTRUCTION
Following the highly acclaimed launch of our performance-focused tour construction technology in 2020, this year we are introducing the second generation of the Pagoda Tour Construction. While still maintaining the industry’s lightest performance-to-weight ratio, this new generation of touring skis are damper and more stable than previous iterations. Primarily due to our new Third Rail Technology, this new and improved platform is also more durable than its predecessor, due to improved integration between the hybrid wood/foam core and our new bio-based sidewall material. This new Algal Sidewall Technology features 63 percent bio content sourced from a microalgae. This bio-oil is derived and formulated for its damping characteristics, bend strength, impact resistance, machinability, and bonding -- resulting in a highly customizable, more environmentally friendly material that we use to create more stable and durable skis. Utilizing our new Third Rail technology and better sidewall integration, Gen 2 Pagoda Tour skis are damper and more stable, more durable, and a step forward on our journey toward better sustainability.
