Elan skis are new to Avie’s Ski / Sport for the 2020/2021 season, but they are hardly a “new ski” to the sport. Check these enticing entries from Elan for the coming season of snow.

RIPSTICK

The Elan Ripstick series of skis are designed as all mountain skis. The wide, shovel-like nose helps them float powder. The hardwood core accented with carbon rod inlays tip-and-tail provide power and stability while staying light in weight and highly flexible. The squared off tail helps hold on tight through the turns. Ripstick skis have a dedicated left and right ski—the inside edge has increased camber for turning grip, the outside edge has carbon fiber and rocker for strength and ease of entering turns. All in all, a fun set of sticks that go anywhere and everywhere you want them.

  • Ripstick 96      $800 / $649 Avie’s    Quick and playful, with lots of pop in and out of turns, in the bumps and through the woods. A great ski for someone who likes to play throughout the resort, with more time in the woods, and on ungroomed and untracked slopes. Avie’s Ski Tester Ray Gomes says “The Elan Ripstick 96 is all good times. It’s lively and easy to ski! It is a welcome alternative to the heavy feeling freeride skis. This ski rips, and is light, versatile and maneuverable. The 96mm waist floats great in powder and crud, yet rips the groomers.” Yep. Ripstic 96 holds their own on hard pack, wide enough to handle powder, yet narrow enough in the waist to grip and rip on the front side. All Avie’s Ski Testers thought Ripstick 96 gave a great ride down the mountain, and were super fun in soft snow. Ripstick 96 will be a great ski for intermediate to expert skiers, and pairs will with Marker Griffon bindings.
  • Ripstick 88      $750 / $599 Avie’s  Take everything said about Ripstick 96 to heart. But because this ski is a bit narrower-waisted, Avie’s Ski Testers found it to be a bit more at home on the groomers, especially at the end of the day when it’s no longer fresh corduroy. Avie’s Ski Testers found Ripstick 88 to be a bit more “poppy” in and out of turns than Ripstick 96, and when in the woods or through the bumps. Intermediate to advance/expert skiers will find fun in Ripstick 88; pairs well with Marker Squire or Griffon bindings.

ELEMENT

Elan Element series skis are uniquely designed to pick up your turns regardless how they are initiated. What does that mean? It means that the flex of the ski—parabolic rocker—allows the edge to connect and start a turn whether you are perfectly positioned over the ski, or even if you are a bit off kilter. That’s what those side-to-side indentations on the topside of the ski are for. This makes for a highly stable ski with a very high degree of forgiveness. This allows for fast progression in building skills and technique, but also means a fun and relaxing day on the slopes for accomplished skiers. Elan Element skis are a perfect choice for skiers of all levels.

  • Element Blue $550 / $449 Avie’s  Elan Element Blue skis are designed for intermediate to advanced level skiers looking for a front-side ski to rip the groomers. Avie’s Ski Testers found Element Blue to be light in weight yet highly stable; they held turns really well, but still had a high degree of forgiveness. This ski will help you improve technique rapidly.

  • Element White     $550 / $449 Avie’s  Element White is the women’s version of the men’s Element Blue ski, and mimics them in all ways. Avie’s Ski Testers give the same notes for Element White and Element Blue—stable in the turns and basically a very fun but forgiving ski. Intermediate to advanced women skiers who favor the groomers and want to improve their carving technique.
