The Elan Puzzle is a great ski for a great price. It felt a little flimsy to me but that's what I like in a park ski to butter around and ride rails. It had great amount of pop to get up on rails and has tip and tail rocker to help not catch so many edges when I'm landing from a spin. They are very light weight and have good edge hold with it SST sidewall construction. If you want a park ski but don't want to spend an arm and a leg to get it, then this ski is for you. Oh did I mention that the new up and comer Chris Laker skis on these? If you don't know who he is youtube him and you'll really see what these skis can do.
All right this is Evan. With the Elan-Puzzle. I give this ski a 45. It has a nice sidewalk construction to it so It holds an edge really well. It also has a little bit of tip rocker and early taper so it skis a little bit shorter so it makes it a little bit more playful in the park and it was a very nice lively ski. Enjoyable on the rails and jumps.
I'm Kyle, I'm here with the Elan-Puzzle. This is a pretty fun ski. It's got jib rocker in it so it's got that little bit of rocker in the tip and the tail so It's little bit easier to spin a little bit more controlling because it feels like a shorter ski. Basically it's got cap construction underfoot. It held It's edge pretty good especially in the pipe. It wasn't a bad ski, I give this ski a 45.
Hey this is Micah for skis.com. I'm riding the Elan Puzzle right now and I have this ski from last year. But it's a for a guy who likes really poppy, not too soft of a park ski. But can hit everything from rails, to jumps, to doing butters on everything. It's a great ski for a guy that wants to step into a little bit more poppy park ski. So I'll give it a 45 and probably my favorite ski.
