Best when used by intermediate and above skier levels, the Ripstick 88 W has a high-performance ceiling and a high-end feel. Built with Elan's tubelite wood core, the skis have a very light, yet stable feel, mostly due to the carbon tubes that line the wood core. This technology increases the fore-aft stiffness and makes the ski hold a strong edge. The vapor tip inserts replace the wood in the tip with a composite material, and this increases maneuverability and quickness by lowering the swing weight of the ski.With more material and mass in the underfoot areas, the skis have a strong carving prowess while remaining fun and playful in the tips and tails. In the softer snow, you'll love the Amphibio rocker profile.
This creates more of a sidways rocker versus a front to back. As a result, the skis have more pressure and material over the inside edge of the ski and a more playful and flexible feel on the outside or uphill edge.
The end result is a smooth-as-silk turning feel, and when you get in the softer snow, it'll help with floatation up and over fresh snow and crud. Advanced lady skiers will love the versatility of the 2020 Elan Ripstick 88 Women's skis. Sidecut: 130/88/105 mm at 163 cm length.
Turn Radius: 14.2 meters at 163 cm length. To take advantage of this free mounting, you must provide your Boot Sole Length (BSL) by messaging us. If this is for a NORDIC ski, we just need your EU boot size in order to mount. Read below for more information on BSL. Where to Find Your Boot Sole Length (BSL).
The boot sole length is not your foot size or boot size; it is a millimeter measurement of the boot shell. Ski boot manufacturers emboss this measurement into the plastic shell at the heel or under the arch.
The number will fall between 255-365mm for an adult ski boot. This number will be greater than your mondo boot size eg.
A mondo size of 23.5 commonly has a BSL of 275mm. Please include the "mm" unit to indicate that the number given is the BSL and not the mondo size. For taking Ski + Binding to a certified ski shop before use to make final adjustments and do a safety release check.
