DESCRIPTION: The Uschi 94 features the new C2 platform--the widest of the Uschi line starts skewing more towards soft snow performance for most women, but is still accessible as a wider everyday resort board in deeper snow climates. The Foundation choice will feel damper, smoother, and more forgiving than the Alchemist, yet also less reactive and energetic. C2 chassis.
129/94/110 | Radius: 19m @178cm
Chassis 2 sidecuts feature a blend of strategically placed radii that make the ski aggressive at the top of the turn, but also incredibly friendly when the ski is off-edge and drifting in mixed snow. That, coupled with varying radii in the tail section, make a C2 ski more friendly off-edge than anything DPS has built to-date in the sub-20m sidecut category. Further, these skis feature relatively high taper angles, which means the ski pulls you deeply into the turn with an immediate, responsive feel. With the introduction of C2, the days when carbon skis were subject to torsion chatter--the feeling of the ski skipping and vibrating in an attempt to match the ski s designed turn radius--are a thing of the past.
Flex Patterns: It took over 25 flex pattern iterations to get to the special goodness that is found in a C2 chassis ski. The tip is just aggressive enough, but nimble to handle crud and moguls. The middle is firm, and the tail is weighted to thread a precise needle between an ultraeasy exit and energetic propulsion into the next turn.
Foundation Construction: Foundation is a completely reimagined and rebuilt construction category that represents a futuristic approach to ski design. Every model in the Foundation series shares DPS Chassis DNA shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-toshape and length-to-length.
