Elan 2014 Sling Shot TBT Skis

SKU: 37658
The Elan Slingshot is the classic price-point Terrain Park ski. It will spring, pop, butter and slide anything in its path while making great turns on the way there. The TBT Rocker profile makes for a smooth ride while more traditional camber skis feel more "hooky", it will be tough to catch an edge with the Slingshot TBT. If you are simply on the hunt for a lightweight all mountain ski, this ski will hold up under most conditions very well.

Description

Details

TBT Freestyle: TBT technology brings you catch-free experience when you are shredding in the parks. With this technology switch take-offs and buttering onto rails can become a reality and the easiest way how to boost your skill to the level of pros! The biggest benefits of our innovative technology are catch-free landings when taking on big jumps and rails due to the lifted edges. TBT also provides you with better pop when you need it and keeps the skis stable when speed is high!

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.

Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.

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.

Tri-axial Fiberglass: A weave of fiberglass with three directional orientation provides excellent strength to weight ratio and better torsional stiffness as compared to bi-axial weaves.

3 Choice Mount Position : The three choices are as follows. Park Mount is where the bindings are closer to dead center on the ski and is best for freeride skiers who want to ski switch a lot of the time. Manufacturer's mount is where the makers of the ski recommend you mount the bindings (usually between park and powder mount). Finally Powder mount is the furthest back on the ski which allows for more tip length and float in powder. If you wish to get more technical on where we mount your skis, please contact customer service.

TBT Triple Base Technology: Triple Base Technology consists of 3 base inclinations, flat in the middle and lifted on the sides. Lifted edges provide catch free rides in powder or in park while middle flat base with camber profile provides power pop for safe landings and take-offs.

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.

Ideal Target Skier: All Mountain Park Rider: Skiers that go anywhere on the mountain, and still make trips through the terrain park enough to require twin tips, describe these skiers. They are not afraid to skip park sessions to ski deep powder, but are torn sometimes for their love of hitting rails and jumps in the park.

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

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.
