As a true all-mountain ski, the completely redesigned Ripstick 88 W is the missing link between on and off piste and addresses the needs of skiers who prefer a smooth yet forgiving ride. Inheriting the tech pedigree from wider Ripsticks, it’s equally confident off piste and on groomers, 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 innovative TNT Technology for a snappy and lively feel while the SST sidewalls complement the TubeLite Woodcore for direct transmission of power edge to edge.
Expanding the series, Elan's new Ripstick 88 Womens Ski was crafted for your strong intermediate to expert skier looking for stability and performance in a lightweight package. Elan's TNT Technology is the combination of a TubeLite Woodcore, tip to tail Carbon Tubes and VaporTip Inserts that give the ski its power and weight reduction. The TubeLite Woodcore has two 5mm thick Carbon Tubes that run the length of the ski, following the arc of the sidecut create an energetic, but powerful feeling without adding any extra weight to the ski. VaporTip Inserts improve flotation and dampen out vibrations when you are really moving down the mountain, even in dicey conditions. The Ripstick 86 has SST Sidewalls that improve your power transfer, add torsional power and provide you with a solid edge hold, on even the toughest snow conditions. If you want a versatile ski that is capable of slicing down the groomers, diving through the bumps and giving you an enjoyable skiing experience, the new Elan Ripstick 88 W will not disappoint you.
