The Foundation 100 RP is on the path for legend status. Classic RP shaping combines a 15m radius with a shorter effective edge than its C2 brethren to promote performance that is both forgiving to pivot and slide, yet powerful and reactive when locked into a carve. Get the most out of your all-mountain 100mm selection with a durable and damp ski that makes your skiing easier while elevating your performance. A supremely damp, powerful, and durable construction. Employing best-in-class components from start-to-finish, weight was not a factor during the design process. Triaxial fiberglass wraps the bamboo and poplar bi-phase wood core, while unidirectional carbon stringers add torsional stiffness. The result is an on-snow feel that produces a wonderful blend of power and dampness, and is readily accessible to a wide range of skier profiles. Every model in the Foundation series shares DPS’ C2 and RP chassis shaping that yields design and performance consistency from shape-to-shape and length-to-length.

DPS's legendary reputation for powder skis is on full display here. Carbon stringers for stability, a light bamboo/poplar core, and an all mountain rocker make this a true all mountain powder ski. Stable at high speeds but nimble through trees and of course, a fun floater on fresh powder.
The camber profile of this ski really allows it to surf in deeper snow, even though it's not as wide as some pure "powder" skis, since 45% of the length of the ski is tip or tail rocker. But, with camber underfoot, it's not going to be impossible to hold an edge on ice/hardback. That being said, while all these skis have a similar width underfoot, the Foundation 100rp is the most powder focused of them all.
