Returning for its second year, the 2020 Elan Ripstick 96 gets a cosmetic upgrade and that's about it. Strong advanced and expert skiers will glean the most performance from these skis. They certainly live up to their name, as ripping sticks. From the days of the parabolic ski to today's Amphibio technology, Elan is not afraid to put some new ideas out there into the world. As the flagship model of their Ripstick line, the 96 is the most versatile of the group.
For a ski without metal, it sure performs like a high-end product. The wood core features tubelite technology that has 5 mm thick carbon tubes running along the sidecut of the ski to provide stiffness without adding weight. This really makes the edges engage and feel like a metal-laminate ski. You'll get a great rebound and feedback when you engage the edges. The Amphibio technology has a rockered outside edge on the tip and a cambered inside edge that makes floating and turning through soft snow a new and engaging experience.
The skis float like much wider skis, but carve like narrower, trail-oriented boards. As a result, you get the best of both worlds in an attractive and lightweight package. You'll be able to make turns like you never have before on the 2020 Elan Ripstick 96 skis. Sidecut: 134/96/113 mm at 181 cm length. Turn Radius: 18 meters at 181 cm length.Ability Level: Advanced to Expert Skiers. Read below for more information on BSL. Where to Find Your Boot Sole Length (BSL). The boot sole length is not your foot size or boot size; it is a millimeter measurement of the boot shell.
Ski boot manufacturers emboss this measurement into the plastic shell at the heel or under the arch. The number will fall between 255-365mm for an adult ski boot. This number will be greater than your mondo boot size eg. A mondo size of 23.5 commonly has a BSL of 275mm.
Please include the mm unit to indicate that the number given is the BSL and not the mondo size.
