Designed by women looking for versatility and progression, from front side groomers to back side bowls, the Ripstick 88 W is wide enough, strong enough, and bold enough to handle whatever the mountains dish out.
As a true all-mountain ski, you can take the Ripstick 88 W anywhere with confidence. It is the bridge between front side and freeride, providing smoothness and confidence under your feet in any conditions or terrain. Inheriting the tech pedigree from wider Ripsticks, it’s equally confident off piste as it is on groomers or variable crud at the end of the day. Optimizing Elan’s unique Amphibio profile this narrower 88 mm Ripstick is agile, smooth and easy to ski. The secret lies within the innovative Amphibio Carbon Line Technology for a snappy and lively feel while the SST sidewalls complement the TubeLite wood core for direct transmission of power edge to edge.
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.
