Product Info

Everybody knows what the Ripsticks do. They rip, of course. Elan's asymmetrical carbon-powered freeride sticks have gotten a lot of love for their unique combination of a relatively light weight and the ability to lay GS tracks down 50 degree faces with ease. And if that concept gets you a little excited, you're going to love the Elan Ripstick 106 Black Edition Skis. More than just a sick black topsheet, these beefed up Ripsticks have twice the number of carbon rods and full wall-to-wall reinforcement under the boot. That means you get more rip per stick than ever before, all while maintaining the nimble profile and versatile all mountain width that makes the Ripstick 106 so dang fun to ride.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Amphibio ProfileThe 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 CoreTo 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 TechnologyAmphibio 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 ReinforcementFour carbon tubes are built into the wood core for lightweight and powerful rebound.

100% Recycled Vapor Tip InsertsVapor 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 ConstructionThe 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.
