Praised by magazine testers and professional skiers alike for it’s unique blend of lightweight performance, the Ripstick 96 is proven to be the ultimate freeride ski in all snow conditions.
If a smoothness indicator existed for skis, the Ripstick 96 would be off the charts! A true freeride ski that doubles as an all-mountain ski for those who want ultimate versatility on the mountain. The Ripstick 96 uses the best technology and lightest weight materials with a modern shape and taper design that make it a perfect choice for every day, on any mountain. It’s wide enough to handle powder yet narrow enough in the waist to rip up the front side. With Amphibio profile for exceptional maneuverability and edge grip, SST sidewalls for direct power transmission, and TNT technology for dynamic power, this multiple award winning ski provides a silky smooth ride no matter where your mountain exploration takes you.
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 performance 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.
