The Ripstick Tour 88W is the epitome of the modern touring ski: light on the uphill, stable on the down and with the handling of a freeride model. This is all thanks to Elan’s clever engineering with light weight materials blended with modern construction such as the tubes of the Carbon Bridge Technology that give the ski a playful rebound with smooth energy. The Amphibio design of different rocker and camber on the inside and outside profiles works perfectly with the shaping to provide effortless handling whether the snow is soft or chopped and heavy. Mount this with a pin set up for an extraordinarily light yet high-performance ski.


Terrain Type & Ability Level

Terrain Type
It’s an all-rounder: smooth and flowing when the snow is fresh; responsive and precise when it gets firmer. The width means it prefers firmer or less deep snow as it doesn’t have the float of some of the wider models, but the dimensions do mean it is nimble and quicker to respond.

Skier Type
It’s a light ski but it doesn’t lack in performance so it can be pushed hard, yet the shape ensures it is never demanding to ski. Perfect for a mix of abilities from good intermediates to expert skiers.


Overview

Shape
The relatively long taper on the tip and tail give the ski comfortable handling whatever the conditions and create effortless turn initiation and release. 88mm in the waist is ideal for touring where the snow is less likely to reach bottomless levels, meaning it is lighter and performs better when conditions aren’t so deep or fresh. It does have enough width and the shape and technology still mean it will float and ski smoothly if you do find untracked snow.

Rocker
Ripsticks use Amphibio technology, a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. These 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
The Tubelite Woodcore uses a super lightweight carbon tube inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. The tube runs the length of the ski and provides torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

Construction
The 360 Degree Sidewall saves weight and ensures good power transfer and precision. Pyramidal shaped sidewalls are positioned throughout the whole length of the ski, to increase vibration absorption and high-speed stability. Carbon is used in the layup as it’s lightweight, strong and provides additional support and reinforcement. Fibreglass reinforcement optimises the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski.


Key Features

Carbon Bridge Technology
Next level stability. Carbon Bridge Technology is a revolutionary solution where a single carbon rod placed on the upper part of the ski provides stability, dampening and vibration absorption through the tip.

Amphibio Profile
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.

360 Degree Sidewall
360 Degree Sidewall is a unique and effective sidewall solution to maximise performance while keeping the weight low. Pyramidal shaped sidewall are positioned throughout the whole body of the ski, to increase vibration absorption and high-speed stability.
