Just as we like to say that wine gets better with years, the 2018 Amphibio 84 XTi ski is living proof that skis get better with additional millimeters underfoot. Feeling at home on all kinds of snow conditions, this ski excels even if you missed the first chair, as it will blast through groomers, crud and will even allow for a quick trip off-piste. The secure 84mm waist width combined with the innovative Elan's Amphibio 4D Technology takes credit for this versatility. It combines the Amphibio profile, a smart combination of camber for greater edge grip and rocker for faster and direct turns, with a pre-shaped, vibration reducing titanium top that differs in the front and rear. A convex front will help you initiate a turn with precision, while the concave rear will make you exit the turn in a dynamic fashion. They say that 40 is the new 30, but don't believe it. 40 is still 40. BUT, the 84mm is the new 78mm! Versatile, quick, powerful and full of energy - don't let the waist width fool you. It will make you feel like you're 30 again, which is the new 20.
This barely used pair will come pre-mounted and ready to ski with a beautiful set of Elan K13 Attack² system bindings. The K13 Attack² is a wider binding offering excellent power transmission, durability, and the chops to keep up with whatever terrain you can handle. The K13 Attack² Demo AT is the integrated system version, which can be adjusted quickly and without tools for a large range of boot sizes. This feature also allows you to easily experiment with where you stand along the length of the ski, increasing its versatility even more. Slide forward for a more balanced turn, slide back for more float in chop and crud. This binding is compatible with Alpine, GripWalk, WTR and Touring boot soles. DIN 4 - 13 for all the retention you need.
- Dimensions: 131 - 84 - 112mm / R 17m
- Amphibio 4D: Elan’s patented Amphibio 4D technology is the latest evolution in modern ski design. The 4D concept has traditionally flat structural layers in the ski strategically shaped in convex and concave forms in the tip and tail of the ski. This shaped structure concept, combined with the Amphibio profile provides unrivalled all-mountain versatility, power and performance.
- Amphibio Profile: 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.
- RST Sidewall Construction: Optimizes the transfer of power and energy from skier to the edge of the ski, providing maximum edge hold from the tip to the tail of the ski.
- Power Wood Core: Features a power-frame composed of poplar that is vertically connected to composite laminates, a structure that provides increased torsional stability and responsiveness. This composite construction delivers enhanced edge hold in the tip and tail areas and a uniform flex throughout the length of the ski.
- XTI Construction: A unique construction for high performance wider platform skis. One layer of titanium enhances edge control while longitudinal carbon fibers provide responsiveness and smooth transition in the turns.
- DIN: 4 - 13 for max retention and release safety
- Metal 77mm AFD Plate: This extra wide AFD with horizontal springs ensures better force transmission, more stability and therefore optimal performance.
