These tubes that run the length of the ski function in a three-dimensional application, allowing the ski to benefit from an almost infinite amount of flexion directions. This gives the ski a new dimension that nothing else on the market has. True Line Technology is the other big thing, adding to the asymmetric nature of the ski. By bulking up the inside edges of the skis with more material, Elan increases the edge grip on the inside while leaving the outside more playful and able to drift along and be more playful and forgiving. It's all about striking that nice blend and balance of performance and playfulness, and the build of the new Wildcat 86 CX does just that.
While not a powder ski by any stretch, the added width to go along with the light weight makes it an adequate soft-snow performance. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
