Description You want something that can handle hardpack, soft snow and everything else in between? Then you need to get Elan's Ripstick 88 Skis. They have both, rocker and camber in their profile giving them the utmost versatility in almost any snow conditions. Combine that with a lightweight wood core with even lighter tips and fiberglass reinforcement, for a nimble and responsive feel. So whether you are cruising with the kiddos or taking off for a fast lap, the Ripstick 88 is ready for all your ski days.
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.
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.
TNT Technology Elan’s unique TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provides the best balance of lightweight 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. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the sidecut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is an incredibly 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.
Fiberglass Reinforcement A 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.
