Product Info

Solid underfoot yet extremely nimble, the Elan Ripstick 86 Skis are a great all-round solution for those who ski primarily on the groomed but may find themselves ripping powder a few times each season. Quite light in the sub-90 mm all-mountain class due to Elan s Tubelite Woodcore, Vapor Tips, and careful design, the Ripstick 86 is also a great ski for trees, bumps and tight-quarters skiing.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Amphibio ProfileThe Amphibio profile is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. Amphibio skis feature a cambered inside edge assuring precision, edge grip, and stability while a rockered outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.

Core

TNT TechnologyElan’s unique TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provides the best balance of light weight construction with power and performance. The core of the TNT Technology is the Tubelite Wood Core with carbon rods along the edges of the ski, combined with Vapor Tip Inserts. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with exceptional power, cushioning and stability.

Tubelite Wood CoreTo create the TubeLite Wood Core, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. Measuring 5mm in diameter and hollow in their construction, these tubes run along the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

Laminates

FiberglassFiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski’s structural integrity.

Vapor Tip InsertsVapor Tip inserts are advanced composites that are integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.

Sidewalls

SST Sidewall ConstructionThe SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.

Base

Sintered UHMW Base

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
