We modified the popular 112 shape to create the RPC; a 115mm-waisted ski with a 18m radius that is designed to excel in the fall line. It is the ideal tool for the charging directional skier that wants to put less emphasis on the RP’s nimbleness and float, and focus on stability and strength in crud. To transform the 112 RP into the RPC, DPS engineers did the following:
1) Extended the sidecut radius from 15m to 18m.
2) Decreased tip and tail height for consistent high-speed crud busting power.
3) Refined the flex profile to prioritize support and stability.
Because of these design changes, the Powderworks RPC allows you to enjoy a bell to bell powder day on one ski; when the snow goes from untracked bliss to heavy, chopped up crud you’ll still be happily blasting through it all on the same ski. In time-honored DPS tradition, this Powderworks edition of the RPC features a sneak peek into construction improvements that result in a unique combination of both improved damping and power.
