The Ripstick 106 is the ultimate ski for variable terrain from boundary line to base lodge, peak to parking lot, and trailhead to tailgate. No wonder it’s Glen’s favorite ski from the Elan collection!
Life can get complicated when choosing your freeride quiver. Fatties may leave something to be desired on hardpack in the backcountry, while on narrower sticks you fall behind your buddies on deep days. The Ripstick 106 is the solution, as it’s the perfect width for a one-ski backcountry quiver. It’s designed for skiers that seek exceptional performance while exploring all the mountain has to offer. It’s a smooth ride no matter where you take it – front side, steeps, trees, or exploring untouched terrain, this lightweight versatile ski is up for any challenge. The addition of TNT Technology, Amphibio profile and SST Sidewall supply the power, smoothness, maneuverability and precision. It’s hard to argue with Plake: “This is the one ski I can take anywhere in the world and be fine.”
CONFIDENCE BUILDING PERFORMANCE FOR ANY SITUATION ON THE MOUNTAIN.
TNT technology is a combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. TNT Technology integrates Vapor Tip Inserts into a TubeLite Woodcore. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performace ski with exceptional power, dampness and stability.
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.
The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
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.
Vapor inserts are advanced composites 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.
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 structural integrity.
