Life can get complicated when choosing your freeride quiver. Fatties will leave something to be desired on hardpack in the backcountry, while on narrower sticks you'll fall behind your buddies on pow days. The Ripstick 106 is the answer to all your skiing problems, as it's the perfect width for a one-ski backcountry quiver. It was designed for skiers that seek exceptional performance while exploring all that the mountain has to offer. It's a smooth ride no matter where you take it - front side, steeps, trees, or exploring untouched terrain, this lightweight versatile ski is up for any challenge. The addition of TNT Technology, Amphibio profile and SST Sidewall supply all the power, smoothness, maneuverability and precision. Hard to argue with Plake: »This is the one ski I can take anywhere in the world and be fine.«
Elan's unique TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provides the best balance of light weight construction with power and performance. The core of the TNT Technology is the Tubelite Wood Core with carbon rods along the edges of the ski, combined with Vapor Tip Inserts. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with exceptional power, cushioning and stability.
PROFILE - 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.
CONSTRUCTION - SST
The SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
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.
REINFORCEMENT - Fiberglass
A Fibreglass reinforcement optimizes the ﬂex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski's structural integrity.
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.
