Product details: Elan Wingman 86 CTI FX + EMX 12.0 GW 22/23 Skis with bindings
The Elan Wingman 86 CTi blends the finesse to tackle off-piste terrain with powerful carving capability, making it your ultimate mountain companion.
As the widest ski in the Wingman series, the Wingman 86 CTi is the bridge to the Ripstick collection. Wide enough to explore off piste, but crushes groomers from early morning light to afternoon bumps. It rips through soft snow and chews up the hardpack.
The Laminated Woodcore is enhanced with Amphibio Truline, Carbon Rods and Mono Ti construction for increased stability, responsiveness and overall performance, the Elan Wingman 86 C Ti exudes energy across every turn you make on the mountain.

Amphibio Truline Technology
Amphibio Truline elevates the asymmetrical ski design to the next dimension by strategically locating materials over the edges of the skis. Structural material is placed over the full length of the inside ski edge, providing more stability to
power the turn, while less material is applied over the outside edge, resulting in a smooth and easy perfect turn.
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.
