The Ripstick 96 knows how to make you a better skier. A world beating 96mm waist ensures you are never outmatched for the days conditions, and the radius of the ski exists in the perfect zone of backbowl stability while maintaining frontside carvability. The lightweight TNT construction features carbon tubes extending the length of the ski for strong and responsive flex while keeping the weight low. Elan's Amphibio rocker profile means you do have to pay attention to which ski is on which foot, but if you get it right you will be rewarded with intuitive skiing and and a ski that responds to your movements faster than what you thought possible. The Black Edition of this ski takes everything you already love about the ripstick, and turns it up to 11 with a carbon construction that adds pop and reduces weight. This is probably the ski James Bond would ride.
