The Wailer A112 was already a great ski, but with the new Alchemist construction, DPS again sets the bar high. Despite its size, shape, and floppy-looking tip, the 112 slays the entire mountain in any conditions. Scores were universally strong, from Flotation and Playfulness to Crud and even Stability at Speed. It was “surprisingly forgiving.” One tester gushed: “Pow, crud, GS turns, trees—the 112 crushes everything with ease.”

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Versatility, Overall Impression
