The Good

  • Very good float
  • Maneuverable considering width
  • Kept getting better the softer the snow got
  • One of the best powder skis on the hardback

The Bad

  • Did not own any particular category
  • Not particularly lively
  • Big price
THE VERDICT

The DPS Yvette 112 Yvette features good float and maneuverability, as well as reliable off-piste performance, but is not a standout in any particular category. Thanks to its lower tip and tail rocker, it also didn't feel like a clown shoe on the hardpack, where it maintained and consistent turn radius with reliable grip.


"Fun" was a term consistently used to describe the "Yvette," but the ski still didn't own any particular category, with one tester saying that given the price tag, "It should be love at first sight." It is definitely a strong pick for advanced to expert skiers who want a performance ski that enjoys the powder and can still hold an arc when the fresh snow runs out.

FULL REVIEW

The DPS Yvette 112 RP2 earned high marks for its floatation and maneuverability in off-piste conditions, and seemed to increase its performance the softer the snow got.
