Elan has always paid a great deal of attention to young skiers. The first steps made into the world of skiing naturally depend on the right equipment. In the 2014/15 season, we already presented our revolutionary U-Flex technology. This system enables the skis and boots to join into a harmonious whole. Both the skis and the boots bend, which enables younger skiers to learn to ski on the edges during their first times on snow. The boots especially are made from a somewhat softer plastic, allowing them to bend and keep the feet warm. Also the sole is moveable and helping the boot to move. This results in a 25% increase in ski flexibility, which proved very effective when dealing with shorter skis. With the help of U-Flex skis and boots, skiing turns into an activity that is as natural for kids as walking, and a lot more fun!
Easy turning = Simple learning
Skis are 25% more flexible than the benchmark, enable kids to make effortless smooth and easy turns for more fun on snow. These skis make skiing simple and fast to learn.
Following the concept that an improved flexibility improves the ease of learning, the U-Flex technology was implemented also for ski boots in order to offer to the market a complete package skis + boots that allow this objectve. The new boot flexes following the morphology of the foot helping also the natural flexibility of the ski for simple learning.
