2013 Review: The Elan 999 Alu are thin, durable and lightweight. What more could you ask for? With Mountain Rocker profile ensuring effortless turns and SST sidewall for control and stability at speeds and acceleration out of the turns, these skis are super reliable and responsive, no matter what your next move is. The Channel Woodcore is a superlight core with air channels along the complete laminated woodcore enabling lower weight and a smoother flex pattern. Dual TI empowers the skis with enhanced edge control in all snow conditions, ensures a progressive flex pattern and superior responsiveness.
