Product Info

Where the original Koala 119 was more of a Grizzly than a cute fur ball, the new DPS Foundation Koala 118 Skis have been re-engineered to cater to a more playful and creative style, with a shorter sidecut radius, deeper rocker lines and slightly softer overall flex. You may still want to keep the Koala 118 away from those bamboo shoots, but rest assured it will chew through pow and chunder like a champ, and won't disappoint when you spread a little butter on them, either.

Shape

Koala ShapeThe Koala shapes promote a creative journey for those who see the mountain as their playground. With a more forward-biased center of sidecut and mount point, and a balanced, near-symmetrical shape, switch riding and big spins are encouraged. The progressive flex pattern allows for an energetic pop out of all areas of the ski, and tips and tails that will happily bend into a butter. These skis are solid performers when on edge too, so the arcs between features are just as enjoyable.
