Our Take On The 2024 Elan Playmaker 101:

The all-new Elan Playmaker 101 splashes onto the ski scene for 2023-2024 riding a four-year-long wave of stoke created by the Ripstick. Elan’s revitalization has been powered by the Ripstick (and Glen Plake’s pink mohawk), and with the Playmaker, they bring a playful, freestyle-oriented all-mountain ski into the mix. Think of the Playmaker 101 as a mashup between the Ripstick and the newer Ripstick Tour. It’s built with an energetic Tubelite wood core plus two carbon rods for stability (a la the Ripstick) and the wrapping sidewall you see in the Tour. That, plus a funky trapezoid bevel along the topsheet edges, makes for a legit strength-to-weight ratio. In other words: The Playmaker weighs in lighter than many other skis in this category. It feels playful and energetic. Yet it also skis smoothly and offers a stable platform. By ditching the Amphibio tech (left and right specific) and tipping the tails, Elan angles the Playmaker as a freestyle ski with legit all-mountain chops. So if you enjoy lightweight and energetic skis like the Ripstick but want more sizzle for jibbing, steezing, slaying, slashing, airing, and general shenaniganizing, you’ve come to the right place. Similar skis: Armada ARV 100, Atomic Bent 100.
