Specs and Shaping
Dreamtime Special Editions. A Primer.
Every summer during Dreamtime DPS releases a limited run of Special Edition skis. Special Editions are one-time series creations with identical build specs to those found in the mainstream quiver, but the ski art is unique and never reproduced again.
Special Editions are a celebration of design. Their impetus lies within the roots of DPS. Founder Stephan Drake was known to custom paint old Axioms and Powder Plus’s prior to the formation of the company. Even though Special Editions run counter-intuitive to good accounting practices, as the labor and materials needed to produce small batch runs is substantially higher than our mainstream quiver creations, they’ve become an annual mainstay for all types of skiers from those getting their first DPS skis, to others who have built a healthy collection.
Special Editions typically have slightly more complex art work than what is found main quiver, but they still leans towards DPS’ core minimalism. People often ask why keep our designs so simple. The answer lies in a nod to singular purity found in deep powder riding. Rock and Roll happens before and after good runs, but in the moment, the experience and the skis are pure, clean, and unfettered. Second, we understand that a ski investment is a big decision and takes a lot of research and hard-earned money. Therefore, we try to keep our graphics as timeless as possible to reduce the marketing- driven craziness that often lead consumers to ‘think’ they need the latest and greatest when what they have is perfectly suited for them.
