Product details: Elan Ripstick 102 W 19/20 Skis Women
The Elan Ripstick 102 W is designed by women for skiers who aggressively push their limits and seek out the toughest lines and deepest pow – all while putting the boys to shame.
As the widest Ripstick in women series, the Elan 102 W is the ultimate ladies freeride ski to use when it gets deep and steep. If you never waste a waist deep day, this is the ski you need to maximize the float and the fun! Have no worries, if you miss the best days of the season, the Elan Ripstick 102 will still be your best friends any other day of the week, smoothly cutting through windblown snow and crud with ease.
The skis’ SST sidewalls provide direct power transmission to the ski edges and assure control over the full length of the ski. Elan’s new Amphibio Carbon Line technology elevates the asymmetrical design and tip to tail Tubelight wood core with additional carbon reinforcements for greater edge grip, all while maintaining ease and precision through every turn

Amphibio Carbon Line Technology
Amphibio Carbon Line technology is a combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. Amphibio Carbon Line technology elevates the asymmetrical ski design to the next level by strategically locating carbon reinforcement over the inside edges of the skis providing more power in the turn, while carbon rods inserted into the woodcore maximize weight savings and overall stability. The end result is an extremely lightweight high performance ski with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.
I would take these babies out where I really enjoyed the additional power, they offered on the ski down. I could turn up the dial quite a bit as I laid out each turn and I felt confident to take more aggressive lines than I typically would ski touring on lighter touring skis. The technology upgrades and subtle design refinements have enhanced all the qualities that made the Ripstick 102s already a super fun ski. Now instead of skiing groomers well the 102s rail on groomers and the power offered through the geometry of their asymmetrical Amphibio design is noticeably more thanks to the rigidity offered by the carbon inserts.
The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
Carbon tubes inserts
Lightweight Carbon tubes inserted into the ski and run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. The carbon tubes 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.
