The Uschi 94 is the love child of DPS’ superior Alchemist construction formula and the brand’s Uschi family of narrower shaped skis featuring DPS’ new C2 platform, with strategically placed radii along the edge to balance quick turn initiation and edge grip. The resulting Uschi 94 is a hybrid of the best of both lines: happy to make short or long turns in variable conditions, but you have to drive them. Translation: arc ‘em or park ‘em. 

Strengths: Overall Impression, Hard-Snow Integrity 

Weakness: Forgiveness
