RIPSTICK TOUR
LIGHT-WEIGHT EQUIPMENT FOR WANDERLUST EXPLORATION

Legendary skier Glen Plake sat down to discuss his latest project with Elan Skis.  Over the past 18 months, Glen and Elan have worked to develop Ripstick Tour, a collection of backcountry skis that deliver freeride performance at a fraction of the weight. In this video, Plake talks about his history as a professional skier, gives a behind the scenes look at the ski development process, and unveils his new signature model ski.

RIPSTICK TOUR 104
Glen Plake signature model

Glen Plake´s first signature model has been a long time in the making and with the combined experience of Plake and Elan, a ski worthy of his signature is born. The Ripstick Tour 104 was designed and tested from the ground up by Elan ambassador and freeskiing pioneer Glen Plake, and blends the lightweight construction necessary for efficient ascents with the legendary performance and style of Glen.

Delivery is available from Dec 15th, 2021.

RIPSTICK TOUR SERIES

The Elan Ripstick Tour was created for touring skiers with the intent to deliver the superior downhill performance of a freeride ski at a fraction of the weight for uphill efficiency. The series is designed from the ground up with the goal of pushing skiing performance to the maximum without losing focus on the functionality necessary for comfortable climbs. The engine that allows us to blend these concepts is Carbon Bridge Technology; a revolutionary solution where a single carbon rod is placed on top of the ski, to provide stability at speed and vibration absorption through the tip in variable snow, without a weight penalty.
