Ripstick 86 W

Description:
Progression and versatility for women is the name of the game with the new Ripstick 86 W. Wide enough to handle whatever the mountain dishes out and light enough to be agile and versatile to make any condition look easy. The brand new Ripstick 86 W will have progressive ladies rule the whole mountain with ease. With a more relaxed and buttery feel than the Interra all-mountain, the Ripstick 86 W is the perfect choice for riding bumps and trees, but it will also charge through the whole resort at the end of the day. If you're on the lookout for a one-ski quiver all-mountain ski with less on-piste focus, this is your top pick, as it's the ladies choice for their all condition ski. Its superb maneuverability is a result of the mountain rocker profile combined with the innovative and dynamic TNT technology with SST sidewalls that get that power from your feet to the edge. The perfect companion for ladies who prefer a softer and relaxed feel in all conditions.

Core Technologies:
Elan’s unique TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provides the best balance of light weight construction with power and performance. The core of the TNT Technology is the Tubelite Wood Core with carbon rods along the edges of the ski, combined with Vapor Tip Inserts. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with exceptional power, cushioning and stability.

Profile:
The Amphibio profile 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.

Construction:
The SST Sidewall Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.

Core: 
To create the TubeLite Wood Core, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. Measuring 5mm in diameter and hollow in their construction, these tubes run along 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.

Reinforcement:
A Fibreglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski’s structural integrity. 
Vapor Tip inserts are advanced composites that are integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.
