DPS Skis, the U.S.-based ski manufacturer pairing aerospace carbon technology with groundbreaking shapes, launches Revive. The new program gives customers a chance to trade in qualifying used DPS skis for a credit towards new DPS skis and gear. Credits amount up to $500 depending on the condition of the traded in skis. Upon receipt, DPS puts the returned skis through a 10-point factory tune process and treats them with PHANTOM Glide—a permanent, high-performance base treatment that improves glide performance across a variety of snow conditions—before putting them back up for sale.
“The durability and lifespan of our skis has always been a top priority here at DPS and it’s not uncommon for a pair of DPS skis to last ten years or more. With Revive, we can now ensure that our skis will be used to their fullest,” says Zach Clayton, global marketing manager at DPS Skis. “Revive allows new customers to give a DPS factory-restored pair of skis a second life which, in-turn, keeps those skis from collecting dust in a garage or taking up space in a landfill.”
To help with storage and distribution, DPS Skis has partnered with used gear retailer, Geartrade, for Revive. DPS-refurbished skis are shipped to, and subsequently distributed from, Geartrade’s facility in Salt Lake City. Revive skis are available for sale directly from DPS Skis or through Geartrade.
“It makes perfect sense to partner with Geartrade for Revive,” says Clayton. “With all DPS skis being manufactured in Salt Lake City, and Geartrade being just up the road, we’re neighbors and we have a long history of friendship and collaboration. Additionally, Geartrade offers best-in-class customer service and has the storage and shipping capabilities that a project like Revive requires. We’re thrilled to be working with them.”
