Buy Now — $800.00
Developed in Elan’s designated women’s program, the W Studio, the Ripstick 102 W makes a reprise appearance in the annual Buyer’s Guide for it’s quiver-killing qualities. The ski’s asymmetrical Amphibio profile means there’s a designated left and right ski—with more camber on the inside edge for insane edge grip and more rocker on the outside edge for extra float. Carbon inserts on the inside edges provide unwavering stability at high speeds. The wood core of the Ripstick includes two carbon tube inlays to create a powerful-yet-poppy plank with dynamic capabilities and the wide shovel helps plow through variable conditions. At 102-mm underfoot, this beauty shines bright in all conditions and belongs on the feet of ripping all-mountain skiers.
FREESKIER Tester Thoughts:
“The Ripstick 102 W can truly charge whatever your heart desires.”
“Elan really nails it with the asymmetrical system in its skis. The butterfly tips are a beaut in chowder, chunder or crud, and the stable edges allow you to load up the ski and shred some turns.”
