    Manufacturer's Description

    At this point in the ski industry, we all know gimmicks as mere marketing tools rather than revolutionary designs. Which is what you might think when you first discover that the Ripstick 106 has—gasp!—an asymmetrical feature that dictates a specific left and right ski. We’ve seen this before and it has been given its various indictments: cuts the life of the skis in half; switching skis gives an unpredictable feel; why would I want to switch skis for a different feel in the first place?

    Well, I’m here to tell you that Elan, after listening to all of these pieces of constructive feedback, managed to quell almost all of these issues with this type of technology. First, note that it isn’t exactly full tip-to-tail asymmetrical. The Amphibio technology has a designated left and right ski with the tips of the outside edges rockered and the inside edges cambered. When used as designated, this unique construction gives a more subtle yet very welcome feeling of familiarity, ease of use, and a bit less abruptness in the initiation of the turn for softer snow conditions.

    (Before you ask, yes, I did try the skis on the wrong feet—do not judge me.)

    The rest is all about the balance one wants out of a ski: stiffness with suppleness, dampening with quickness, and all of it comes together better than even the marketing words can say.

    The Tubelight wood core takes the carbon factor a bit further by going from stringers to actual hollow tubes that run front to back along the sidecut to give more torsional rigidity with less weight. This is combined with a Vapor Tip technology—inserts in the tip and tail that reduce swing weight and vibration for an easier pivoting between turns. And I’ll be damned if it doesn’t work beautifully. The skis handled a sketchy traverse to the steep, chalky, no-fall Gullies off Big Sky’s Lone Peak with deft of ease, even with the low visibility and variable snow.

    The Ripstick 106 provided an overly familiar ride that slightly pushed me but not to a point where I had to over-perform the ski, which is a refreshing nuance. The Ripstick 106 will work for any skier intermediate and up looking for that soft-snow daily driver that goes beyond the basic brand promises or gimmicks and actually displays and supports their abilities. —Wally Phillips

    Manufacturer's Description

    Praised by magazine testers and professional skiers alike, the Ripstick 96 has proven to be the ultimate freeski of choice. Wide enough to tear through the deep stuff, but still narrow enough in the waist to rip up the front side, the 96 provides dynamic power and edge control for a ride that’s as smooth as butter making it a perfect every day choice for any all mountain adventure.

    Ripstick 96

    $800.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Elan RipStick 96 emerged last winter as a nimble, feisty model from the founders of the Amphibio technology—an asymmetrical rockered outer edge and cambered inner edge—that shines when arcing big turns in the wide-open spaces found at Big Sky. To take advantage of the Amphibio tech, make sure you have your skis on the right feet: there’s a left and a right. The Ripstick 96—a Skier’s Choice pick last year—remains unchanged from its first iteration. Built with bamboo, poplar, and carbon fiber, it is an agile, sporty resort ski. The Amphibio technology helps improve turns by increasing grip and stability with its elongated edge contact. The TubeLite wood core ski moves fast and charges like a metal-made ski and handled the chunder in the steep Dictator chutes.

    While the 188 felt too long to maneuver in tight trees and tracked out bumps (I felt a bit sloppy and in the backseat here) the Elan Ripstick 96 holds a strong edge on hard packthe terrain it’s made for. —Sierra Davis
