Stealth Technology

The search for a powder ski that destroys hardpack is officially over. Designed with Glen Plake, the new Ripstick 106 Black Edition utilizes game changing QuadRod Technology to defeat the myth that fat skis are only for soft snow and proves hard charging skis can also be light and playful without sacrificing power and stability.

The evolution of the Ripstick Black Edition Collection sets the new standard for the powder category at impossibly high levels. Starting with our critically acclaimed TubeLite Woodcore that features two carbon rods following the sidecut of the ski, we then positioned two additional carbon rods in the center of the ski, in the tip and tail for optimal balance and power distribution. Next, we enhanced the Amphibio Profile by adding Carbon Line, a carbon weave placed along the inside edge for a smooth feel with great edge grip, in the tip and tail. The tech is anchored with an additional wall-to-wall layer of exclusive carbon under the binding for lightning-quick power transmission and stability, without interrupting the natural flex pattern, for unrivaled performance that is intuitively harnessed by the skier. Lastly, we cloaked this masterpiece in a stealth, black, camo wrap. The benchmark has been set for a lightweight, powerful ski that dominates powder and rugged terrain with versatility and ease, leaving bystanders speechless.

Amphibio Carbon Line TechnologyAmphibio Carbon Line Technology

Amphibio Carbon Line Technology 

Confidence Building Performance For Any Situation On The Mountain.

Amphibio Carbon Line technology is a combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. Amphibio Carbon Line technology elevates the asymmetrical ski design to the next level by strategically locating carbon reinforcement over the inside edges of the skis providing more power in the turn, while carbon rods inserted into the woodcore maximize weight savings and overall stability. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.

Amphibio profileAmphibio profile
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.

SSTSST
SST Construction

The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.

Tubelite woodcoreTubelite woodcore
TubeLite Woodcore

To create the TubeLite Woodcore, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

Vapor TipVapor Tip
100% Recycled VaporTip Reinforcement

Making a difference in sustainability is the motor of every process and using 100% recycled materials in the components of our products is an approach we take to reduce waste. Completely recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the main ingredient in plastic bottles, is processed into high-performance foam materials that are light, strong, and used in our VaporTip reinforcement.

Dual Ti reinforcementDual Ti reinforcement
QuadRod Reinforcement

Expanded upon its TubeLite Woodcore, which features two full-length carbon rods placed in the core, adjacent to the edges and the shape of the sidecut, by adding two additional carbon rods to the center of the ski, one in the tip and one in the tail, resulting in QuadRod Technology. It delivers next level smoothness and grip, with a natural flex pattern for the perfect blend of playful, yet powerful performance.
