Product Info

One of our favorite women's all-mountain solutions, the Elan Ripstick 102 Skis do everything well for a wide variety of skiers. From clean carves on the groomed to predictable float in fresh, the Ripstick 102 does it all without a hitch, and responds equally well to balanced lateral movement as old-school tip pressure drivers. The Amphibio profile works best if skied "classically" with the majority of weight on the downhill ski, but performs seamlessly in pretty much any snow conditions. It's hard to argue with a ski that does everything you ask of it without drama, and the Ripstick 102 deserves a close look if you're a soft snow oriented all-mountain adventurer looking for versatility.

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

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.

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.

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

Additional Features

Climbing Skin Notch at Tail

Binding Compatibility

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