Designed by women looking for versatility and progression, from the front side groomers to the back side bowls, the Ripstick 88 is wide enough, strong enough and bold enough to handle whatever the mountains dish out.
As a true all-mountain ski, you can take the Ripstick 88 W anywhere with confidence. It is the bridge between on and off piste providing a smoothness and confidence under your feet in any conditions or terrain. Inheriting the tech pedigree from wider Ripsticks, it’s equally confident off piste as it is on groomers or invariable crud at the end of the day. Optimizing Elan’s unique Amphibio profile this narrower 88mm Ripstick is agile, smooth and easy to ski. The secret lies within the innovative Amphibio Carbon Line Technology for a snappy and lively feel while the SST sidewalls complement the TubeLite wood core for direct transmission of power edge to edge.

Amphibio Carbon Line technology is a combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. Amphibio Carbon Line technology elevates the asymmetrical ski design to the next level by strategically locating carbon reinforcement over the inside edges of the skis providing more power in the turn, while carbon rods inserted into the woodcore maximize weight savings and overall stability. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.
Amphibio technology is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. Amphibio skis feature a cambered inside edge assuring precision, edge grip and stability - while a rockered outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.
The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
To create the TubeLite Woodcore, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

Vapor inserts are advanced composites integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.
Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fiberglass is positioned either above or below the ski core and improves a skis structual integrity.
