Prefer to live life on the groomed? The Elan Ripstick 88 Skis are a capable all-mountain option with lightning quick reflexes and enough versatility to dabble in off piste terrain when the feeling strikes. Constructed with the same Carbon Line Technology and TubeLite woodcore as the other Ripstick skis in a slimmed down package, the 88s deliver the quick edge-to-edge performance and precise turning needed to satisfy corduroy connoisseurs all season long.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Amphibio Profile  The Amphibio profile 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.

Core

Tubelite Wood Core  To create the TubeLite Wood Core, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. Measuring 5mm in diameter and hollow in their construction, these tubes run along 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.

Laminates

Carbon Line Technology  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.

Vapor Tip Inserts  Vapor Tip inserts are advanced composites that are 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  Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski’s structural integrity.

Sidewalls

SST Sidewall Construction  The SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.

Base

Sintered UHMW Base

Additional Features

Climbing Skin Notch at Tail

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
