Elan says about the Ripstick 116 21/22
Our widest big mountain slayer is back and better than ever! Designed by our athletes and pushed by the world’s best, the Ripstick 116 floats and slashes down the world's steepest and deepest lines.
As the widest ski in the collection, the Ripstick 116 is the pinnacle of the Elan freeride lineup. It's a hard charging freeride ski that’s burly, yet responsive, for top-to-bottom big-mountain mastery. The new Amphibio Carbon Line Technology, combined with round tip and tail shape delivers improved confidence at speed and maneuverability in powder. The Ripstick 116 is designed to dominate the deep days we all seek. They cut through windblown snow and crud with ease thanks to the direct power transmission of SST sidewalls, tip-to-tail woodcore, and carbon rods along each rail. The addition of Amphibio Carbon Line technology places strategically located carbon reinforcement over the edge of the skis to provide more stability in the turn. VaporTip inserts are added to the tip to reduce swing weight and chatter. Designed for the biggest, deepest lines in big mountains, the Ripstick 116 is all about good times!
