Carbon layers provide torsional stability and powerful rebound for skiers looking for a dynamic, powerful performance that can handle the whole mountain. This is the High Performance version of the standard Ripstick 96. The Ripstick 96 would chart at 100%! A true freerider that doubles as an all-mountain ski for those who want ultimate versatility on the mountain. The Ripstick 96 uses the newest technology and lightest weight materials with a modern shape and taper design that make it a perfect choice for every day, on any mountain. It's wide enough to handle powder yet narrow enough in the waist to rip up the front side.
Amphibio The Amphibio profile is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. Amphibio skis feature a cambered inside edge assuring precision, edge grip, and stability while a rockered outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.
Carbon Extra Carbon is added to the core to improve torsional stability and give the ski a more energetic and lively feel.
SST The SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
TubeLite Wood Core To create the TubeLite Wood Core, 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 along 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.
Vapor Tip Inserts Vapor Tip inserts are advanced composites that are 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.
