The 2021/22 Elan Ripstick 96 Black Edition is the premium version of the beloved Ripstick 96.
The skis design focuses on reducing chatter and fast and easy edge switches for smooth powerful turns from a lightweight design. The Ripstick 96 has Elan’s TubeLite Woodcore, which features tip to tail hollow carbon rods that are inserted through the laminated wood, following the ski’s sidecut, that reduce the weight of the ski while keeping it stable. The Vapor Tip inserts in the tip and tail of the Ripstick 96 keep chatter down, while the SST sidewall construction makes the power transmission from foot to ski smoother, for better acceleration through your turns.
Carbon fiber dreams are filled with Black edition Ripsticks. This souped up version of the skis expands the layer of carbon fiber and adds two more carbon tubes running through the center of the ski. Thanks to that QuadRod set up, this ski produces an unbelievably damp and smooth ride without having to pile on the metal!
If you love the lightweight construction and playful feel of the Ripsticks but generally look for a more stable and high speed friendly ski, check out these Black Editions!
