Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Elan Amphibio 82 XTi. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it. I would recommend this ski for the person who's typically been in the 75 range in width of skis and wants to move into the 80 range of width skis. It's definitely for that hard pack, groomer skier, East coast, Midwest or groomed hard pack out West. It's extremely strong and stable. It makes quick, short turns, if you like short turns I'd recommend it. You do want to ski it at a little shorter length, so normally I ski about a 175, this is a 168 which is probably the length I would recommend to really take advantage of what the ski can do. If you like short turns, you're skiing on hard pack and you want to move into the 80 mm length ski, this would be an awesome choice for you.

Yo, this is Josh. I just got off of the Amphibio 82 XTI. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. This is a true carving ski. This is a great frontside ski. Two sheets of metal in it really stiffens it up. Edge-to-edge it's quick. The reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars, this is ski not for me. It's a little too stiff. You push this ski it definitely pushes back. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Elan Amphibio Waveflex 82 XTi. It's a solid ski, it's a little unforgiving at faster speeds and tighter turns, but it held an edge well. For longer turns, stability is pretty solid, at fast speeds. Again, great for longer turns, holds an edge great on groomers, and a good ski for the advanced expert.

Hi, this is Trey. I just got done skiing Elan's Amphibio 82 XTi. I'm going to give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. Could be a little bit higher maybe, if you're a bigger guy and I say that because there's quite a bit of metal in it and if you ski it hard, so when I push it really hard, it's really fun, it holds great. I just don't know that I'd want to do that all day. But, if you're a bigger guy and know how to ski, I think it could be a pretty easy, fun, all day, all around ski, especially if you're just starting to get into a wider ski. You're mainly going to be skiing the frontside and a few times you go out West, and it might get kind of heavy and cruddy, you can plow through all that stuff, but still get that versatility of having a ski that does both medium, long, and short radius turns. So, 4 out of 5 stars.

Hi. I'm Kevin. I just got off the Elam Amphibio 82 XTI. I give this 3, 3.5 out of 5 stars. For me, it was probably a little stiff. I'm a little on the lighter side. The length I ski in was a 68 which is a little bit shorter than I ski most skis. Normally I'm around like a 75 for this type of ski but with the two layers of metal in it, for me, I just feel I couldn't get the full amount of rebound and energy. I just couldn't load it up to maximum so I wasn't get the most out of this ski. It had a lot of edge grip. It was very stable, very smooth. So, if you're on the lighter side you probably definitely want to go down a size from what you normally would on this. But all around a good frontside carver. Like I said, for me, it was just a little too stiff.

Hi, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Elan Amphibio Waveflex 82 XTi. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 stars. I didn't like it as much as some of the other skis in this line up. I didn't feel it was quite as stable as the 88 or even the 76, but still, a decent ski. Not bad for your intermediate moving on up into your advanced level skier. Turns-wise it did pretty good, it favored a longer radius turn, medium, short, not as much. But, again, 3 out of 5 stars. The Amphibio Waveflex 82 XTi.
