While our Indie Brand testers loved the Alchemist construction of the Zelda 106, our backcountry testers preferred the Tour1 construction. Made with a lightweight balsa wood core sandwiched between DPS’ industry-leading pre-preg carbon laminates, the Zelda 106 Tour1 is super easy to get uphill but stays damp and takes on every type of downhill condition with ease. It’s been our Director of Photography’s go-to backcountry ski for a few seasons now, and that’s not likely to change. 

Weight: 1,340g per ski (168)
