The Elan Ripstick Tour 88 is the ski that the touring world has been waiting for. Lightweight, floaty, fast, stable, strong, and versatile - all at the same time.

Designed with our freeride athletes and guides that demand perfection everywhere they go, it's ground-breaking construction has allowed us to drop the weight to a minimum and push performance to the maximum, while maintaining a playful feel for all aspects of the journey. This 88mm waisted ski is very light and easy to maneuver, yet deftly capable, making it a true modern touring ski.

The free touring segment is the trend in alpinism; combining light equipment that performs in powder and remains stable in variable conditions is essential. The Ripstick Tour 88 is the perfect waist to feel confident on descents and narrow enough to enjoy comfortable, long uphill ascents, making it the sweet spot for touring skis. At approximately 1250 g per ski in length 170 cm we've targeted the optimal weight for a touring ski, without sacrificing downhill stability and performance. When paired with the 305 g C-RAIDER tech binding and Ripstick Tour 88 skin, there is a complete, lightweight package, that will perform and inspire. With carefully designed CARBON BRIDGE TECHNOLOGY, we implemented a carbon rod reinforcement to connect the energy of the ski for a smooth feel with playful rebound. 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 with functional weight reduction, while full sidewalls increase edge pressure and contact. With a freeride profile and shape, we've assured this is the perfect combination of weight to performance ratio for all skiers, in any conditions found in the backcountry.

Carbon Bridge Technology

Next level stability

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 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.

RST ConstructionRST Construction
360° Sidewall

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.

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.

Carbon  

Carbon is a lightweight and strong material that provides additional support and reinforcement in the part where needed the most.

Fiberglass Reinforcement

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.
