Fun-loving rippers need to check out the Ripsticks. One of the favorite ski collections among our staffers, the Elan Ripstick lineup adds a new member this year: the Ripstick 88. These skis promise to be some of the most fun frontside-oriented all-mountain skis in the world in 2020. Why? Well, they know how to rip. Built with lightweight TNT construction, featuring carbon tubes that run the length of the ski, they are lightweight yet strong. We love ripping mogul lines, carving groomers, and slashing powderfields on the Ripsticks. And while the narrower 88mm waist means these skis will up the ante on those first two applications, donít sleep on these skis when some fresh snow falls. Lightweight and tapered, with VaporTip technology, the noses of these skis sniff out powder and keep you floating when they find it. Amphibio technology optimizes grip and maneuverability with camber on your inside edge and rocker on the outside. This build does mean you have to pay attention to which foot you put each ski on. But get this simple test right, and you will reap the benefits of Elanís madness all season long. Similar skis: Black Crows Orb, K2 Mindbender 90 Ti.
