FOLDING TRAVEL SKI
In our new world, one thing remains crystal clear - devoted skiers still want to spend their precious spare time in the mountains. And in the face of rapidly changing travel habits, anything that can make that goal easier to achieve is invaluable.
ELAN VOYAGER: THE WORLDS FIRST ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI THAT FOLDS.
The result is a ski that allows you to bypass the wait at the oversize luggage belt. A ski that allows you to carve up groomers, float through powder, attack moguls and fit into the trunk of your car with plenty of room to spare for other luggage. It’s designed to fit the needs of the traveling skier, that is passionate about striking a balance between a busy schedule and a healthy lifestyle.

SEE HOW IT WORKS
The secret of the Voyager is Elan’s revolutionary Connect Technology® which uses a four-axis mechanism that bonds and seals the ski together at the folding joint. This combines with a carbon-reinforced fusion plate that serves as a load-bearing platform for support. The two components work together to provide rigidity to the ski for superior performance, but also allow the ski to fold into a compact, easy to transport package.
Functionality, intuition, and long-term quality are the three main design drivers. Design emphasizes usefulness in a way that concentrates on essentialonly aspects and makes the product self-explanatory and intuitive. The ski delivers a never-seen-before folding functionality, so part of design is in the role of intuitive folding ability. The fold/unfold is achieved by rotational moves to allow snow or ice to slide out of the way. The areas that are exposed to folding & rotation are designed with care for long-term usage, even after countless repetition. Some design elements were inspired by aviation iconography as the ultimate mobility reference.
What do you want to know about the Elan Voyager?
From folded position to unfolded position, it takes around 15-30 seconds to assemble both skis into skiing position. It is a very convenient and easy process. First, you unlock the safety mechanism, then unfold it, rotate the plate in any direction, and align it to the ski. To finish the process, lock the mechanisms in front and back of the plate and release the brake lock to secure the skiing mode. Every step of the process is marked on the ski itself to prevent errors. The reverse process is the same in time and steps.
Voyager skis have been tested and proven by various top-level skiers. They also comply with the highest Elan quality standards and went through an intensive laboratory testing process. Moreover, the “proof” of the testing process is shown in a video with Filip Flisar, overall World Ski Cross champion, who had only one mission; To test the Voyager to its limits. If you want to see it, please search for »Ski is the Limit« movie. The development process started with a concept that was developed into more than 25 different prototypes, to first test the functionality of the mechanism. This was followed by continuous development of additional prototypes with the goal of finding the ski with the perfect skiing characteristics. Skis were tested by different skiers, in different locations around the globe, and various snow conditions. Skiers tested different geometries, constructions, mechanisms, and tuning settings to push the boundaries of what is possible.
Voyager skis are extremely durable. The folding mechanism is strong and built on the knowledge Elan gained with the foldable army ski for special mountain forces. Connect technology® is designed to perfection. Also, Voyager skis are built with strong structural reinforcement elements; carbon box technology, carbon infused fusion plate, titanium reinforcement, and many more other highly durable components. These skis will handle even the most demanding usage. See the movie »Skis the limit«.
That is true. The story of folding skis began with the first-ever functional touring folding ski named IBEX Tactix, which was developed with the Slovenian army, to increase mobility, transport capability, and helicopter operations. Elan has now transformed this product and idea into a product for an everyday user that is eager to visit the mountains on the weekends with top-level performance ski.
Voyager skis are available to buy directly through www.elanskis.com or our distribution centers and specialized shops. For more information visit the page of Elan specialized shops.
The weight of skis in length 160 cm is 3400 g per ski. This weight was proven to be the best mix of all-mountain performance skis, especially for skis with such a wide range of capabilities and top-performing characteristics. Voyager is offered in two different packages. Voyager 1P Ski bag with skis weights 8,5 kg in total. It is a super easy carry-on bag that can be stored practically anywhere. Homes, apartments, or even the back of the car. This enables the skier to travel quickly and conveniently, so the decision to go skiing is dependent on time management, not preparing the equipment. The second pack is the Voyager Travel bag, which weighs 13,8 kg including skis. This is a super slick carry-on bag, for traveling even further with all ski equipment, even by airplane.
They fold between 93cm for size 172cm and 87cm for size 160cm. The skis can be packed in a travel bag with a length of 100cm and a check-in approved total length of 156cm or in a 100cm long 1-pair bag that fits in most car trunks.
