Elan Ripstick 96 Skis 2018

SKU: RIP9617
Elan's Ripstick 96 is a no nonsense all-mountain charger. It uses TNT technology and Amphibio camber to ensure that each edge to edge transfer is as explosive at a stick of ACME cartoon dynamite (so nobody gets hurt). Carbon and tip inserts make sure that the ski is responsive yet lightweight. All of this fits together inside of a 96 waisted ski that is a realist's stick of choice throughout the season. Yes, it can bring involuntary yells of joy if you find a pow stash. However, sometimes, even the day after a storm, those can be few and far between. So they have trimmed the fat to make a lean mean carving machine of these narrowest of the Ripstick line. They bust crud, and don't lose composure even when encountering ice-coated avalanche debris hidden under last night's dusting. Perhaps best of all, we doubt the rest of your crew will be able to keep up once you hit the groomers. If you want an all-mountain ski that truly lets you rip your turns with the best of dedicated groomer skis, these are it!

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.
