New from Elan for 2020 is the Ripstick 88. Taking the place of the Ripstick 86, the all new Ripstick 88 steers clear of seriousness and instead focuses on giving skiers what they want: pure, unadulterated fun. While some skis in the ~90mm range utilize metal to create a powerful, all mountain feel, the 2020 Elan Ripstick 88 chooses a decidedly different path. Utilizing a full wood core, Elan's Amphibio Rocker, and other fun-oriented features, these skis are extra playful and nimble, as exhibited by Glen Plake in this review of the all new 2020 Elan Ripstick 88!

New from Fischer for 2020 is the Ranger 99 Ti. As you may have noticed in recent years, Fischer has been building out their Ranger series in an effort to create the ideal all mountain ski for all skier types. As such, they've broken the series into two categories: the FR (Freeride) and Ti (Titanal) series, with the FR Rangers geared towards playful skiers and the Ti series aimed at more powerful, aggressive skiers. As you'll find out, this was an excellent move as it helped establish stronger identities for each series. Click through to take a closer look at the all new 2020 Fischer Ranger 99 Ti in this comprehensive ski review!

Here at SkiEssentials, we love the new 2020 Liberty Evolv90 Skis for one specific reason: they prove our theory that there's a perfect ski for everyone. Being a new entry into the ~90mm waist freeride scene, you'd be reasonable to express skepticism as to whether or not the new Evolv90 brings anything new to the table in an already crowded segment. As we found when we reviewed this ski, it absolutely does. Simply stated, the new 2020 Liberty Evolv90 offers a new option that fits perfectly between "maneuverable" and "powerful". As you'll find out in this review, the 2020 Liberty Evolv90 is a perfect choice for those looking for a ski with a little of everything. Click through to learn more!
