 Overview
 

The new Elan Ripstick 96 is a ripping all-mountain ride for any skier seeking versatility and power in a remarkably lightweight package. Elan's TNT Technology brings together the TubeLite Woodcore and Vapor Tip to give you maneuverability and stability anywhere on the mountain. A TubeLite Woodcore uses 5mm Carbon Tubes that run the entire length of the ski that follow the arc of the sidecut for stability, and responsiveness. Those carbon tubes increase the torsional strength, while keeping the ski light, so light in fact you will not believe how smooth the Ripstick will ski. Vapor Tip Construction uses Advanced Composite materials in the tip and tail that lower the swingweight, and increase your ability to make tight turns on firm snow, in the trees, and entrances to a narrow couloir. Elan's Amphibio Rocker only makes the Ripstick 96 more maneuverable by having a rockered outside edge in the tip, and a cambered inside edge for quicker turns and grip on the snow. If you want a ski that can charge through the powder, carve on rails, and feel light on your feet, the Elan Ripstick 96 is the ski for you.

Hi I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Elan Ripstick 96. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. This is fast becoming my new favorite ski for everyday skiing. It's two-ply wood core makes this ski extremely light, but it still packs a very, very powerful punch. It's easy to adapt to really any snow condition you want, at any speed, in any turn shape you want; it's highly versatile you can really take it anywhere. It's got the Amphibio rocker in the tip so it really engages a turn nice and quick, but it also feels very, very light on your feet. And for that strong intermediate looking for adventure, all the way up to that expert that wants a one ski does it all type of thing. This is the ski for you, 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Steve, I just got off the new Ripstick 96 from Elan. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars, this ski really does rip. It held edge great even though it's 96 at the waist and were on a hard pack day today. It held the edge great, turn shapes were really good you can do anything from short to long radius turns. Transition was super smooth, very fluid back and forth and just a really fun easy ski to ski. It's got plenty of rocker, so I wouldn't be afraid to take it out on a nice powder day so i think this is a really good go anywhere, do anything ski at a 96 waist i give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Hi I'm Thom. I just got off of the Elan Ripstick 96, and this is a 5 out of 5 star ski. This is one of the most exciting new skis out there for me. It's incredibly light weight, but it doesn't sacrifice anything in performance, so it's just this amazing combination; tons of energy tons of edge hold, lots of power to finish the turn but it's not a demanding ski either. You can put a solid intermediate on this ski all the way up to through an expert level skier and they are going to have a wonderful time. With the width, it can go anywhere on the mountain: Groomers, Crud, Bumps. Light powder, its going to manage it just fine. It really is kinda that one quiver ski, for the skier that's really looking to be playful and just having a great time out on the hill. 5 out of 5 stars.
