What DPS says about the Pagoda Tour 106 C2
“With its rockered tip and elongated edge contact, the 106 C2 is arguably the most versatile shape in the DPS quiver.
The Pagoda Tour 106C2 is ready to handle a day full of powder, corn, and/or refrozen mank. Take it deep into the backcountry, or straight from the roadside to the ridgetop for a quick hit mission. Find the fall line and enter backcountry bliss.
The key to Pagoda Tour’s performance is both in the choice of materials and how they are layered. By mating DPS’ proprietary new carbon laminate with a combination of ash and paulownia woods, and a purpose-built aerospace grade foam – that features incredible physical properties at minimal weight – a special alchemy emerges. The result is a distinct combination of power, energy, and dampness that rivals front-side oriented skis at classic touring weights.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Pagoda Tour 106 C2:
In Front of Toe Piece: 9-10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9.5
As you can see, this ski is very stiff overall.
