The new Ripstick Tour 94 is designed on a wider platform, enabling the skier to float better, ski faster, and turn easier in backcountry conditions.
It is built to blend high performance at a low weight, for the perfect mix of freeride downhill performance and efficient ascending capability. With Ripstick Tour 94, the confidence to conquer long ascents and charge challenging descents is the name of the game.
Combining downhill performance with lightweight construction is an art form when designing skis. Luckily, the art of craftmanship is the heritage of Elan. The Ripstick Tour 94 exceeds all expectations of weight to performance ratios, thanks to extensive testing with our athletes and mountain guides. With their input, we created a super stable, poppy, easy to turn ski, which is focused on meeting light weight requirements to enable the skiers to explore the backcountry no matter how they accesses terrain. At 94 mm underfoot and with Carbon Bridge technology, the ultra lightweight construction has the support to deliver heavyweight performance to charge any terrain and tackle every ascent with speed and power. When combined with the 305-g C Raider binding and Ripstick 94 Tour skin, Elan delivers a complete package that allows you to access the best terrain and while achieving peak performance.
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.
