The Elan Ripstick 96 Black Edition Skis take an already great platform - the Ripstick 96 - and beef it up with more carbon and a stiffer flex for skiers who set their limits higher and faster than the rest. Elan uses Carbon Line mesh in selected areas of the tip, tail and underfoot plus two additional carbon rods to deliver lightning quick response and stability while maintaining a lightweight package overall.

Product Details

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

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

Carbon Line Technology – Amphibio Carbon Line technology is a combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. Amphibio Carbon Line technology elevates the asymmetrical ski design to the next level by strategically locating carbon reinforcement over the inside edges of the skis providing more power in the turn, while carbon rods inserted into the woodcore maximize weight savings and overall stability. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.

QuadRod Reinforcement – Four carbon tubes are built into the wood core for lightweight and powerful rebound.

100% Recycled Vapor Tip Inserts – Vapor Tip inserts are advanced recycled 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.

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.

Base

Sintered UHMW Base

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
