The Elan Bliss Ski is an all mountain tool that will allow upper intermediate to expert ladies to ski down just about anything that's in front of them. At 106-112mm (depending on length) in the waist, the Bliss will carve quite well on hard packed and float in powder and crud. This isn't by any means a stiff ski either, it will hold up at high speeds but if your looking for a stiff racing style ski, look elsewhere. The Bliss is playful and friendly especially with the added tip rocker. Anything around 106mm really hits the sweet spot in our opinion because it truly allows the skier to dabble in all terrain and snow types without feeling the need to switch to a wider/narrower ski.

Description

Details

Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the the rounded Cap construction forund on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.

We Have Recommended Some Bindings For You: You will notice there is a dropdown menu that says "Ski Bindings" above. These are simply a list of curated bindings we recommend will work best for this particular ski but other bindings will work as well. There are a few factors i.e. brake width, DIN range, ability level that determine an appropriate binding choice, so let us know if you need assistance.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

Skier Ability: Intermediate to Advanced: Sometimes these skiers are intermediate, and on a good day, they are advanced, but hard to commit to one level. They can ski most places on the mountain, sometimes with a little difficulty, but always making it down without crying and calling ski patrol.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Tail Rocker: Just like Tip rocker, but in the tail, this feature allows the tails of the skis to release easier from the turn to give the skier the ability to turn the skis quicker in tight spots. It also allows skiers to dump speed by forcing the tails out and sliding sideways. The effective edge is reduced because of the tail rocker, so the skis will also be easier to control when forced to ski on the groomed slopes.

Fiberglass Laminate: In order to make the core stiffer and poppier without adding weight by using metal layers or denser wood, these skis have been given an fiberglass laminate. Believe it or not, even glass fibres have a degree of elasticity. Using pre-stretched fibres in our laminates means you can be sure that your shred will never feel lifeless or lack pop throughout its life.

These skis are an amazing improvement on what I've used before. Great float on powder, nicely handle chopped crud, and even turn well on groomer. A bit of chatter at high speed on packed groom, but that's not really what I'm into this for. (Posted on 1/6/2017)

I haven't used them yet, but the design is great, and I think I am going to get a lot of use out of them next ski season! (Posted on 4/19/2016)
