ELAN Ripstick Black Edition

By Julie Brown

 

I was bopping along on the Ripstick 106s, Elan's trademark that has been one of our Skis of the Year the last two years, when all of sudden, Team Elan threw a curve ball at me--the Ripstick Black Edition. I clicked into the sleek, black ski and got a look that said, you're in for a surprise. We tapped poles and pushed off.

 

One turn on the Black, and I knew I was on a totally different, new and improved ski. A few more turns and I shifted into sixth gear and took off.

 

The Black Edition is a feistier version of the Ripstick 96. It has the same Amphibio technology, with a sidecut specific to your left and right foot, a technology that, in theory, makes it easier to turn. But it's built with carbon instead of fiberglass, which means it is Stiff A.F. and fast. This baby doesn't like quick turns.

 

It packs a ton of power and wants to fly down mountains and make huge arcs. It's a ski to fulfill all of your ski racing fantasies. As Red local and Powder Union Skier Jeremy Harvey says, it's full send or nothing. "Sexy!" he said. "Strong and stiff for groomers. It plowed through the crud and held shape."

 

Truth be told, on my normal days of bopping around the mountain in search of powder stashes, I'd probably opt for something more versatile, like the regular old Ripstick 106. But on those days when the corduroy is fresh, or the wind buff smooth, and you want to go as fast as humanly possible, go Black.
