Elan Ripstick 106 is the ultimate ski for variable terrain from boundary line to base lodge, peak to parking lot, and trailhead to tailgate. Life can get complicated when choosing your freeride quiver. Fatties may leave something to be desired on hardpack in the backcountry, while on narrower sticks you fall behind your buddies on deep days. The Ripstick 106 is the solution, as it's the perfect width for a one-ski backcountry quiver. It's designed for skiers that seek exceptional performance while exploring all the mountain has to offer. It's a smooth ride no matter where you take it - front side, steeps, trees, or exploring untouched terrain, this lightweight versatile ski is up for any challenge. The addition of TNT Technology, Amphibio profile and SST Sidewall supply the power, smoothness, maneuverability and precision. It's hard to argue with Plake: "This is the one ski I can take anywhere in the world and be fine."
