Description Designed by women for versatility and progression, the new Ripstick 88 W is wide enough to handle whatever the mountain dishes out and makes any condition look easy. As a true all mountain ski, the completely redesigned Ripstick 88 W is the missing link between on and off piste and addresses the needs of skiers who prefer a smooth yet forgiving ride. Inheriting the tech pedigree from wider Ripsticks, it’s equally confident off piste and on groomers, especially at the end of the day when it’s no longer fresh corduroy. Optimizing the combo of Elan’s unique Amphibio profile this narrower Ripstick is agile, smooth and easy to ski. The secret lies within the innovative TNT Technology for a snappy and lively feel while the SST sidewalls complement the TubeLite Woodcore for direct transmission of power edge to edge.
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.
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.
