Product Info

The narrower Elan Ripstick 88 Skis give skiers who prefer the groomed (or simply ski in places where they don't get much snow) an all-mountain option with tons of versatility and lightning quick and precise turning ability. Using the same TNT Technology and TubeLite woodcore as the other Ripstick skis, but trimming the waist down makes the "88" much quicker edge-to-edge and improves the hard snow performance.

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.
