2022 Elan Ripstick 88 Women's Skis w/ Tyrolia Attack 11 GW Bindings
Elan Ripstick 88 Womens Skis with Bindings
The Elan Ripstick 88 women's skis with bindings are an amazing setup for true light-weight all-mountain skiing. You won't find a setup better than this if you're looking to cruise the whole mountain with some serious versatility built in. Thanks to the shape, profile, and construction of the skis, the Ripstick 88 W loves to be put to the test. There's a huge number of skiers who could get on this ski and be all set with everything else. They're light, fun, floaty, and precise all at the same time. Elan does some pretty cool stuff with their ski building, from inserting carbon tubes into the core to rockering only the outside edges. Since they build right and left-specific skis, they're able to alter the shape and build to suit our needs. Amphibio rocker is the story here, and makes it so the skis are incredibly smooth and easy to turn while the inside edges remain stable and stout. Thanks to their Carbon Line Technology, the skis get a boost of carbon over the inside edges, and this helps make that carved turn a lot more precise and grippy. The cool thing is that they're able to accomplish all of this without adding the weight of a metal laminate. Keeping it all wood and carbon is pretty cool these days, and it helps Elan distinguish itself from the competition. The shovels are light and floaty thanks to the Vapor Tip inserts, but the underfoot and tail of the ski are very responsive and energetic. It's a great combo, and you'll love the value of the Elan Ripstick 88 women's skis with bindings.

Already have recommended the K2 Mindbender in a previous question. Out of these two, Ripstick 88 all the way! An SE tester favorite, its a fantastic one-ski quiver that is just so versatile in most conditions and terrain.
While your stats may point to the longer length, your application and preferences lean to the 162. If you're looking for a lighter, more maneuverable, and dare I say, funner version of your Black Pearl, the Ripstick in the shorter length will be great.
