Elan Ripstick 102 Women’s Skis 2017-2018
The first thing you need to know about the all-new Elan Ripstick 102 W is that there is a specific left and right ski. This is due to Elan’s “Amphibio” profile, comprised of a cambered inside edge to grip the snow and provide stability and a rockered outer edge for greater maneuverability. Testers responded very well to this feature; one noted that she “felt in control and fluid at all times, even when blasting through chunder.” Another said, “This ski is like a Cadillac ride—so smooth, dependable and predictable in mixed snow and moguls.” Special composites in the tip and tail provide another nod to chatter-free skiing. Advanced and aspiring female skiers alike will appreciate taking this ski on challenging terrain, no matter the conditions.
