In our tests, the Elan Ripstick 106 Skis were one of the most versatile all-mountain tools we’ve come across in years. Adept at both short and long radius turns, on anything from ice to boot top pow, the Ripstick 106 simply did it all, and wasn’t picky about balance point (it worked best if skied from a centered stance, but responded well to tip pressure and seldom lost its composure even when skied “backseat”). The Amphibio profile may sound like something out of Bladerunner, but we assure you it works like a charm. If a do-it-all freeride ski is in your future, you’d be making a mistake not to consider the Ripstick 106.
Amphibio Profile – The Amphibio profile 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.
