Last year’s Fat Ski Winner returns with some significant upgrades designed to make an already fab fattie even more fantastic.
All of this year’s Elan Ripsticks have been given a construction overhaul with a carbon fibre weave added to the front inside edges of each ski.
The goal is to create lighter skis with primo edge hold and power transfer.
Stick the rip dial full on, get the Ripstick 106 on an edge and it grips like a barnacle on a boat hull.
The flexy nature of the ski also acts like a big suspension unit, soaking up undulations in the snow like you’re on a magic carpet. It is just so much fun, super smooth and floats like a butterfly off-piste.
Ever the humble tester Lee reckons: “If it’s good enough for Glen Plake, it’s good enough for me!”
Also in 88, 96 and 116.
