As the widest Ripstick for women, the 102 W is the ultimate women freeride ski to use when it gets deep and steep. If you never waste a waist deep day, this is the floaty ski you need. But don't worry, even if you miss the best days of the season, the Ripstick 102 W will smoothly cut through windblown snow and crud with ease. SST sidewall's provide direct power transmission and Elan's TNT technology combines a tip to tail Tubelite Woordcore, embedded carbon rods along the edges with Vapor tip inserts in the tip and tail for ultimate performance and a smooth ride. With the Ripstick 102 W, it's always good times, without the need for make-up!
Rocker Type Amphibio Profile: 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.
Core - TNT Technology: Elan’s unique TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provides the best balance of light weight construction with power and performance. The core of the TNT Technology is the Tubelite Wood Core with carbon rods along the edges of the ski, combined with Vapor Tip Inserts. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with exceptional power, cushioning and stability. - 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.
Laminates - 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. - Fiberglass: Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the ?ex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski’s structural integrity.
Sidewalls SST Sidewall Construction: The SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
