BUILT FOR THE THOUGHEST TERRAIN
Designed for passionate freeride tourers, seeking for the most reliable and uncompromising skis. Made for those who enjoy charging on the downhill, yet light enough for enjoyable ascents.
The IBEX series was designed for those who leave the chairlift behind and feel the best source of energy is human power. From exercise to adventure, The IBEX series incorporates Elan's Tubelite woodcore, which reduces weight and improves efficiency, while Bridge Technology results in stable, secure, and confident descents. Up or down, Elan's adventure series sets the standard in high performance touring skis.
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.
Designed and built to handle the most challenging terrain in any snow condition the mountain can dish out, the Ripstick series is the ultimate Freeskiing tool for demanding skiers. Constructed with a progressive shape and Amphibio Carbon Line technology to maximize weight savings and stability, the Ripstick delivers uncompromised versatility and smooth performance. With the addition of the Amphibio profile, Carbon Rods, and SST sidewall construction for power and precision, the Ripstick floats like a butterfly and springs like a ski.
