 Overview
 

The new Elan Amphibio 88 XTi is a high powered ski for aggressive skiers looking for the upmost in maneuverability and stability. Elan's Amphibio 4D Technology uses a convex tip and concave tail to enter turns immediately and exit turns as fast as possible. Amphibio Rocker uses a rockered outside edge and cambered inside edge of the tip to make the Amphibio 88 XTi highly responsive. The shaped metal will quiet your ride by reducing vibrations by 30%. The Response Frame Wood Core has a Dual Shaped XTi layer placed above it to give you the most powerful construction this side of the World Cup. RST Sidewall direct you energy right to the edges of your skis for a powerful edge hold on the snow with a high amount of rebound. The Fusion Binding System allows this burly stiff ski to flex naturally while maintaining a very high amount of energy transfer. If you want power and maneuverability all wrapped up into one tightly wound package ready to explode down the mountain, the Amphibio 88 XTi is the ski for you to add to your arsenal.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Jeff S.
Comments:
Hey, this is Jeff. I just got off the Elan Amphibio XTI 88. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I love this series of skis - the Amphibio series. If you get the right width you're going to absolutely enjoy this ski 100%. It's for an advanced skier, recreational advanced all the way to expert. It skis great at slow speeds and high speeds, short turns, long turns. It really does everything. It's so much fun to ride and the way that this ski is built with a true left and right ski, it skis like nothing else on the market. It is really in its class all of its own. The Amphibio 88 XTI from Elan - 5 out of 5.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Josh H.
Comments:
Hi, my name is Josh and I just got done riding the Amphibio 88 by Elan. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It held an incredible edge and made great medium to long radius turns. This would be a great ski for that advanced to expert skier who is really looking for something that's very stable, a little bit wider with an excellent frontside carving capability. Again, 5 out of 5 stars.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Kyle T.
Comments:
Kyle here with the Amphibio 88 from Elan. I do like this ski. I'm going to give it 4 out of 5 stars. It's the wider one of their Amphibio series so it's not going to be quite as quick from edge-to-edge as the other Amphibios. It's not going to hold an edge as well but if you are getting into a little bit deeper stuff then hop on this and still charge really hard. Check it out. It's a good ski. 4 out of 5.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Mike B.
Comments:
Hey, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Elan Amphibio 88 XTI. 5 out of 5 for this ski. It's awesome. It's an all-mountain ripper. It's going to be great for the advanced to expert level skier or a bigger person like myself that's really looking to charge the entire mountain. It's got an interesting rocker shape in the tip so it will help you to initiate turns but it also will float through crud, light powder. I've taken this ski into the bumps and it performs great. It's gonna be really an all day ski. It's going to handle anything you can throw at it and I should mention I don't usually mention graphics but I think the graphics look pretty good on this. It's, you know, a redesigned ski for this year so it's a ton of fun. Check out the Elan 88 XTI.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Ryan
Comments:
Hi, I'm Ryan. I just got off the Elan Amphibio 88 XTI. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for advanced carver looking for more of an all-mountain ski. It's right at home doing big carves in the groomers but you can still get a little bit of fun time in the trees. They changed up the ski this year a little bit in the tail and it really shows - it's makes for a much more predictable release than the last year's model. Overall, I really enjoyed this ski.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Sam
Comments:
Hi, I'm Sam Smith. I just got done riding the Elan Amphibio 88 XTI. I give this ski a rating of 4 out of 5. It handled really well on the groomers. It does have a longer radius ski type of turning radius on it. I thought that it did handle very, very well. I did enjoy this ski. This ski's going to be more aimed towards the expert-type and, like I said, it handled really, really well on the groomers.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Adam
Comments:
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Elan Amphibio 88 XTI. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a fantastic carving ski for that advanced to expert skier who is looking for something that's wide enough to really power through any ruts or crud but still be increasingly nimble and agile from edge-to-edge. It's really stable at speeds. It excels best at short to medium radius turns but it's a fantastic ski for somebody who is looking to carve. 5 out of 5.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Thom
Comments:
Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Elan Amphibio 88 XTI. 5 out of 5 star ski for me. This is my absolute favorite offering from Elan. Super stable. Goes into the turn really well and it's just got tenacious edge hold. But with the flex profile on it, it's got this unique ability to manipulate the turn shape so anything from a short to a long radius turn, it handles really well. You can so much as change the shape mid-turn if you really want to. So, for your guy that's advanced through high-level expert skier who wants something that's really a dedicated on-trail ski but still super, super versatile, the 88 is not one to miss. 5 out of 5 stars.

2016 Elan Amphibio 88 XTi Ski Review by Andy
Comments:
Hi, I'm Andy and this is the Elan Amphibio Waveflex 88 XTI. I give this ski 5 stars out of 5. This is a ski for the advanced to expert skier looking for a versatile frontside ski. It's great at carving long turns. It's also great when you push it into short radius turns. Very quick edge-to-edge and holds very well on hard pack. Anyway, I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars.
