Testing skis so you don't have to.
Pugski Ski Tester
Tricia: Many manufacturers are targeting the coveted top spot in the 88mm waist category, and Elan is not missing the boat. The Ripstick 88W is the newest addition to the Elan Ripstick line; with its Amphibio design, the skis are specific to left and right, which creates a balance of edge hold on the inside and great turn initiation with its slightly rockered outside tip. This ski definitely has what it takes to play in moguls and tear up the chopped powder; it will let you know why they call it a Ripstick.
Insider tip: If you’re looking for a little stronger ski, go to the Ripstick 94W.
