The DPS Phantom Glide is a disruptive, truly innovative solution that ushers in a new era in snowsports.
PHANTOM is a permanent, one-time application, waxless base treatment that forever eliminates the need for waxing skis and snowboards.
PHANTOM’s patent-pending polymer technology offers ultimate convenience combined with great glide performance that never wanes across all snow temperatures, and for the life of a ski or snowboard’s use.
Since launching PHANTOM via Kickstarter in late 2017, DPS' R+D efforts have been unrelenting to further refine the technology. They set out to shorten cure times and make the application process easier and more consistent. That’s the heart of the advancement of PHANTOM 2.0: a reduction of outside cure time from six (6) hours to two (2) hours, and a formula compatible with a quick and easy indoor shop Cure Station process. As a bonus, while developing the 2.0 formula, DPS succeeded in making PHANTOM slightly faster than the original formula across all snow conditions.
PHANTOM can be applied by an individual with access to direct and consistent UV sunlight to activate and cure the formula. Ideally, this should be done during the Spring, Summer, and Autumn seasons when the sun is high and temperatures are warm. For proper PHANTOM application, it’s critical for there be strong, direct sunlight and temperatures over 32ºF / 0ºC.
• PHANTOM cure time under direct outdoor sun is roughly 2 hours total (1 hour for part A, 1 hour for part B). It takes approximately another 20 minutes of prep work and brushing to complete an application.
• Not-provided items/services needed for proper DIY PHANTOM application include a ski or snowboard base cleaner, or alternatively, employing a ski/snowboard shop to clean bases via stone grinding prior to application.
PHANTOM can be applied professionally by an Authorized PHANTOM Installer using a Cure Station.
The process takes approximately 15 minutes for part A, and 15 minutes for part B, with minor additional preparation and soak time.
Cure Station application, available at select DPS dealers, is the most precise and fastest method to apply PHANTOM to skis or snowboards, and is a reliable all-season solution during the low light winter months, especially in more extreme latitudes, and in wetter climates where sunshine isn’t as consistent.
