Designed for the most challenging terrain and any snow condition the mountain can dish out, the 2018 Elan Ripstick ski series is the ultimate freeskiing tool for demanding skiers. Constructed with a progressive shape and unique TNT technology to maximize weight savings and efficiency, Elan Ripstick skis deliver uncompromised versatility and smooth performance. With the addition of the Amphibio profile and SST sidewall construction for power and stablity, the Ripstick floats like a butterfly and springs like a ski.
As the widest ski in the collection, the Elan Ripstick 116 has a tough job as Elan's freeride flagship. It is a hard charging big mountain freeride ski that’s sturdy, yet responsive, for top-to-bottom mountain exploring. With Amphibio profile for exceptional maneuverability and confidence at speed, the Ripstick 116 is designed for the deep pow days we all seek. These skis cut through windblown, crud and cut up junk with ease due to the direct power transmission of SST sidewall technology. The addition of TNT technology combines woodcore from tip-to-tail, with carbon rods along each rail and VaporTip inserts in the tip and tail for light weight and less chatter. Designed for the biggest and deepest in the backcountry, the Ripstick 116 is all about good times!
This barely used pair of Ripstick 116s 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: 143 - 116 - 132 / R 22.9m
- TNT Tech: Elan’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.
- 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.
- SST Sidewall 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 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.
- 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.
- Vapor Tip Inserts: 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.
