With the Amphibio 4D technology, these skis grab the front-side unlike any other ski. The front section utilizes convex technology for dialed in turn initiation, and the rear uses concave technology for a dynamic exit. Two sheets of Titanium increases the stability, reduces vibration by 30%, and reduces the overall weight of the ski. The elevated ramp angle of the ski binding also helps improve power transmission to guarantee you are getting the most energy transmission with each and every turn. If a front-side carver is what you are looking for, look no further than the Elan Amphibio 80 XTI.
