The Elan Explore 6 is a great option for the true beginning skier to mellow intermediate that wants a lightweight and forgiving ski that will help them learn easily or hone their technique. Parabolic Rocker will give you more control by making the Explore 6 enter and exit turns with minimal effort. Rocker in the tip engages the tip of the ski into turns, and rocker in the tail will release the skis from turns very easily. The Explore 6 has Waveflex Technology that uses waves built into the mid-body of the ski that allow it to have an easy longitudinal flex, lowers the total weight of the ski, and increases the torsional strength of the ski that will make it more responsive the faster you ski. The combination of the Full Power Cap Construction with a Dual Wood Core with layers of Fiberglass give the Explore 6 that perfect amount of forgiveness that will make learning easy, and give you the control that you need to progress to that solid intermediate. If you are just starting out and want a ski that will make learning easy, the Elan Explore 6 is the ski for you.
This is my first pair of skis after renting. I really like having the same ski under me each week and the price point is amazing. I tried a number of demos and some were for too advanced for me. These are amazing skis for me. I am a big guy at 6'2 250 and I feel in control with these skis. I am glad my this purchase.
Hi, I'm Andy. This is the Elan Explore 6. This is a ski for the beginning to intermediate skier. It actually does that job quite well. I give the ski 5 stars, a 5 star rating. It is very stable, holds a very good edge. It does good slow speed turns, excellent high speed turns. I believe it actually skis a little bit above its rating. And, this is a great ski for anybody in the beginning to intermediate range looking to move up even. I give this ski 5 stars.
