Ripstick 96 Black Edition Skis Now On Sale

This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:

Powder7 Staff Pick Harry
By: Harry
The Ripstick 96 Black Edition is one of my favorite skis to ride on. I've used these at Loveland along with some of the larger resorts (Beaver Creek, Vail, etc..) and they are awesome wherever you take them. They stay grounded down the groomers and are playful when you want to play around. Highly recommended for any intermediate to advanced skier.

Our Take On The 2024 Elan Ripstick 96 Black Edition:

Returning unchanged other than a slight graphics lift for the 2024 season, the Ripstick 96 Black Edition is a tactical freeride ski. Elan takes their Amphibio design even further with Amphibio Carbon Line Technology, which inlays Vapor Tip Inserts at the tip with a mesh carbon weave reinforcement along the inside edges of both skis to considerably improve edge hold, dampness, and energy over the previous Black Edition skis. Combine that with the QuadRod technology, which inserts two additional carbon rods into the middle of the ski compared to the normal Ripstick to add smoothness, grip, and increased power. At 96mm underfoot, it's also the best in the lineup in terms of balancing carvability with soft snow prowess. James Bond doesn't make tradeoffs with his gadgets, and neither does Elan; while the ski has become stronger and more stable, it hasn't lost its typical balance of quickness and maneuverability. Get a Ripstick Black Edition and be like Bond... James Bond.
