Elan's Ripstick Tour 94 W is designed for adventurous women who want all of the benefits of lightweight technology in a wider chassis designed for bigger mountains and deeper snow.
Expanding on the reassuring and capable feel of Ripstick, on which our reputation has been built, Ripstick Tour 94 W benefits from an overall reduction in weight while maintaining peak performance. The Ripstick Tour 94 W delivers state-of-the-art lightweight technology in a wider ski design. It has everything you need to confidently enjoy your next touring adventure.
It's tricky finding the perfect balance between downhill performance and lightweight construction for efficient ascents. The Ripstick 94 Tour W is the perfect solution for riders that want more float on the descent and prefer a wider ski in the backcountry. For ambitious free touring, we combined the new Carbon Bridge technology with the implementation of carbon rod reinforcement and the result is a strong ski with powerful rebound and the best weight/performance ratio in the free touring segment. The length of the reinforcement is designed to exact measures to reduce vibration and tip chatter. A reduced sidewall shape gives the ski a unique look and functional weight reduction, while full sidewalls were added to increase edge pressure and contact. This ski is designed to be light and quick on the ascent yet stable and solid on the descent. Ripstick 94 Tour W is a universal touring ski that doesn't leave anything to be desired.
Carbon Bridge Technology, is a revolutionary solution where a single carbon rod placed on the upper part of the ski, provides stability, dampening, and vibration absorption through the tip.
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.
360° Sidewall is a unique and effective sidewall solution to maximize performance while keeping the weight low. Pyramidal shaped sidewall are positioned throughout the whole body of the ski, to increase vibration absorption and high-speed stability.
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.
Carbon is a lightweight and strong material that provides additional support and reinforcement in the part where needed the most.
Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fiberglass is positioned either above or below the ski core and improves a skis structual integrity.
