The Ripstick 106 skis from Elan will take you places. On the way, should you encounter powder, steeps, trees, crud, bumps, or groomers you will be happy you have the 106's underfoot. They are an all-mountain ski that truly can do it all. The Ripstick series of skis have been showered with awards for a reason. They rip! They are by-in-large a regular cambered ski that will virtually toss you out of one turn and into the next. The Vaportip inserts at the tip and tail reduce swing weight of the ski to give its solid construction a lightweight feel as you manuever them from edge to edge. The tech features just keep coming too. Between the sidewall are two carbon tubes inside the core that give unparalleled stiffness for the weight. If you want a ski that is as much fun as groomers as it is in powder you might have found them.

Description

Details

SST Sidewall Construction: SST construction combines the durability and rigidness of cap construction with sidewall construction for more power and edge grip to form a unique hybrid sidewall design.

TNT technology: TNT is the foundation for building skis that are extremely lightweight, while delivering powerful rebound and a smooth on-snow ride. How did we do it? We integrated VaporTip Inserts into a TubeLite Woodcore. The end result was TNT Technology. The TubeLite Woodcore offers incredible response and stability at a low weight, while the VaporTip Inserts further reduce weight in the tip and tail areas and improve stability for a balanced and smooth ride in any conditions.

Amphibio Rocker Technology: Elan's Amphibio Rocker is a groundbreaking design, wherein the edge of the outside ski has a stable flat camber, great for holding edges on hardpack; and the edge of the inside ski is rockered in both the tip and tail, giving it a more surfy, easy and playful feel. The purpose of this technology is to give you a ski that is extremely fast and stable on hardpack without being painfully difficult to maneuver, as well as giving the outside edges a nice surfy feel when making turns in soft snow.

Tubelite Woodcore: To create the TubeLite Woodcore, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. Measuring 5mm in diameter and hollow in their construction, these tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

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.

Vapor Tip: Vapor Tip inserts are advanced composites integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.

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.

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.

I flew into SLC and picked up the Ripsticks at the SLC store.
The skis are awesome. They do everything. Stick on the hard packed like a GS ski. No flutter at high speeds. Incredible float in the fresh powder. Plow through the crud! Quick and light. Absolutely love them.
Glen Plake was right. "try the Ripsticks"

Love this ski!Review by Tfer

I came from a Dynastar Cham 107 184 which I loved, but on fast groomers it would just wouldn't cutting it. I demoed this ski at Targhee and it was my favorite of the day. I was sold on getting the Volkl Mantra, but pulled the trigger with this ski instead. The ski rips through the crud, floats like a cloud, and rails down the groomers. I can finally say I've got a one quiver ski. Absolutely love it. Short turns..long turns.. it does it all. I went with a longer length of 188 since it feels shorter. Maybe because it feels so light. 2 thumbs up from this critic. I didn't think the asymmetrical design would work, but it does! (Posted on 1/30/2017)
