Permanent base glide treatment available on Kickstarter until December 1
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – November 7, 2017 – DPS Skis, proprietors of Phantom – the permanent, one-time application base-penetrating formula that forever eliminates the need for waxing skis and snowboards, took a monumental leap forward toward upending the snowsports industry by surpassing its $35,000 USD Kickstarter goal in four hours, and then exceeding it by 100 percent in less than 24 hours.
“We couldn’t be happier to have received the support of more than 700 backers in a single day.” said Stephan Drake, founder and CEO of DPS. “Phantom’s near immediate popularity across online publications and social media is a testament to a product that was a long time coming.”
Early enthusiasm has been exceptional:
“Phantom will completely redefine that [wax] market. DPS’ achievement here can’t be understated – if you want to ski fast in all conditions you won’t be waxing your skis much longer.”
– Digital Trends
“If all goes as planned, Phantom will force waxing into winter sports obscurity, where the ancient technique would join nostalgia-soaked relics like leather boots, bear-trap bindings and snurfers.”
– The Denver Post
The disruptive product has ushered in a new era for the future of snowsports by providing an eco-friendly solution that delivers excellent on-snow glide, day after day, for both skiers and snowboarders.
