Technical info:
F stands for Foundation, and this is the cheapest series from DPS. Nina F99 is a fibreglass sandwich. It is not particularly light, which is unusual for this manufacturer. There is more sidecut in the front and back than in the waist. This is a medium stiff ski with a little softer tip.

On snow:
DPS´ Nina F99 is easy to maneuver and performs well in powder. A good choice as your first powder ski, but our test team missed qualities at speed. Many of the riders experienced it as weaker than other DPS models. It appeared to be unstable at high speed. This is definitely not an allrounder. It is a simple ski that works well in powder at moderate speed. All in all, it suits those who want an off-piste ski that is easy to maneuver and don´t crave the hardest challenges.
