Salt Lake City-based, technologically advanced backcountry skis company DPS Skis has just announced several exciting new products. The ski manufacturer which pairs space-age carbon technology with groundbreaking shapes is now selling two new sets of touring bindings, two pairs of gloves, and a new line of touring skins. Product information is attached below, courtesy of DPS Skis.

Bindings

DPS R14 – $749.95

The lightest high-performance alpine touring binding, with the most neutral stance for natural ski balance. Individually adjustable heel release values from 8-14 with a patented cam system which makes step-in smooth and easy regardless of release settings. Unique adjustable boot stomp pad allows the boot heel to sit flush against the structure of the binding. This significantly improves energy transfer through the heel compared to a boot resting unsupported purely on the pins.

DPS R10 – $599.95

At 260g this binding sets the bar for performance touring at half the weight. With a modern ramp angle to line up with today’s ski flex profiles, the DPS R10 competes at speed touring weights on the up, and rivals bindings twice its weight in downhill stability and performance. With individually controlled release value of 5-10, a fully functioning integrated brake, and crampon compatible, the DPS R10 does not skimp on features nor performance

Touring Skins

Offered in pre-trimmed shapes, perfectly cut to DPS sidecuts and lengths, or trim-to-fit with an intuitive cutting tool.

With demand high this year due to constraints on the global supply chain and with winter right around the corner, you should get your backcountry ski gear setup in order sooner rather than later.
