Product Info

One of the revelations of the spring tests last season, the Elan Ripstick 106 Skis came out on top of several skier's lists in the "Expert All Mountain" category. Plenty of power combined with the ability to mix up your turn shapes in a size that works well in pretty much any snow conditions is a challenge for ski designers, but Elan s nailed it with this ski. Lighter and snappier than you might expect for a ski with this much precision, the Ripstick 106 sports TNT Technology - light composite Vaportip inserts at tip and tail, along with a Tubelite core with tip to tail carbon tubes inside of the wood laminate. Top it off with Elan s radical Amphibio® rocker profile, which gives you camber on your inside edges with subtle rocker on the outsides, and you'll find yourself railing better and faster than ever before without the hesitation you've probably grown accustomed to on your uphill ski.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Amphibio® ProfileElan's unique design uses distinct "Left and Right" camber profiles - camber on the inside edges and rocker on the outside ones. The result is power and precision on the more heavily weighted inside edge with easier pivoting and smoother turn transitions on the outside edge.

Core

Tubelite WoodcoreTo 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

VaporTip InsertsStrong and dynamic Tubelite woodcores are paired with lightweight composite Vaportip inserts in the tip and tail of the ski to lighten swing weight and reduce vibration, dramatically improving the ski's ride qualities.

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

Additional Features

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.
