As the widest ski in the collection, the Ripstick 116 has a tough job as Elan’s freeride flagship. It is a hard charging big mountain freeride ski that’s sturdy, yet responsive, for top-to-bottom mountain exploring. With Amphibio profile for exceptional maneuverability and confidence at speed, the Ripstick 116 is designed for the deep pow days we all seek. These skis cut through windblown, crud and cut up junk with ease due to the direct power transmission of SST sidewall technology. The addition of TNT technology combines woodcore from tip-to-tail, with carbon rods along each rail and vaportip inserts in the tip and tail for light weight and less chatter. Designed for the biggest and deepest in the backcountry, the Ripstick 116 is all about good times!
