The Ripstick 88 is the perfect combination of versatility, agility, and performance for every condition the mountain can dish out. Ripstick 88 defines the all-mountain category and serves as the missing link between on and off piste skis. Inheriting the tech pedigree from wider Ripsticks, it’s equally confident on groomers and off piste, 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 Amphibio Carbon Line Technology for a snappy and lively feel while the SST sidewalls complement the TubeLite Woodcore for direct transmission of power edge to edge. Simply stated, the Ripstick 88 is the perfect marriage of front side and freeride performance for skiers looking for a smooth, forgiving ride.
Amphibio Profile- Amphibio technology 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 Construction - The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
Tubelite Woodcore- To create the Tubelite Woodcore, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated woodcore. These tubes run 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.
