DescriptionElan has taken the cornerstone of its line, The Ripstick 96 and given it the star treatment. The highly praised chassis of the Ripstick 96 gains the special award-winning Black Edition carbon upgrade. Externally, an additional layer of carbon wraps the skis internal wood core from edge to edge for added performance with more strength and power without adding weight, while the carbon top sheet adds style that stands out on the chairlift and ski rack with distinction. Internally, carbon rods provide the skis with high energy, rebound and stability. All the additional carbon greatly influence the performance of the ski without adding a significant amount of weight.

Amphibio Profile — Amphibio technology is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. A cambered inside edge assures precision, edge grip and stability — while a rocketed outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.
Carbon Line Technology — A combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. It strategically locates carbon reinforcement over the edges of the skis, providing more power in the turns, while carbon rods maximize weight savings and stability. Extremely lightweight, high performance skis, with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.
SST Construction — Provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
TubeLite Wood Core — Two super light weight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run 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.
QuadRod Reinforcement — Expanded upon the TubeLite Wood Core, two additional carbon rods are added to the center of the ski, one in the tip and one in the tail. It delivers next level smoothness and grip, with a natural flex pattern for the perfect blend of playful, yet powerful performance.
100% Recycled Vapor Tip Reinforcement — Completely recycled PET, the main ingredient in plastic bottles, is processed into high-performance foam materials that are light and strong.
