Elan Ripstick 96 Skis with Tyrolia Attack2 13 GW Bindings

The Elan Ripstick 96 skis with bindings are a fantastic choice for skiers who are looking for a light weight, high performance setup to take them all around the mountain and beyond. For advanced and expert skiers who are looking for a ridiculously fun and versatile ski, the Ripstick 96 offers premium carving performance as well as floaty, smeary, and fun-loving attitude. For whatever type of turns you can imagine, you can likely do it on a Ripstick. Sitting in the middle of the Ripstick line, the skis boast a 96 mm waist which is about as versatile as it gets-narrow enough to get some good edge grip while remaining wide enough to float through a decent amount of fresh snow. Elan has made some nice changes for this year, including the Carbon Line Technology that bolsters the inside edge stiffness and response of the skis. Feel free to stand right on this thing, as the right/left-specific build makes it so the inside edge of the ski is stiffer and more stable than the outside. This gives the ski an incredibly smooth and round shape to them that makes the transition between turns really stand out. There's a lot to like about the asymmetry of these skis, and it happens to be that it makes a lot of sense. When paired with these bindings, you're good to go. There's a high-performance type of feel to them that most advanced and expert skiers will enjoy.

Hello guys,  I'm so impressed by your reviews, and I believe you could help me. Here is my story. I started skiing 4 years ago and my first ski was K2 Ikonic 80Ti. They worked very well, especially at a local resort in Arizona. Most of the time artificial snow with Ice. But over the last couple years we started skiing more in Utah and Colorado and we tried trees and moguls. It is so much fun, but my skiing is definitely not the best for that.  Could you please help me pick good mountain skis. i had a chance to try Kendo 88 for a day and I like it a lot. I also tried Enforcer 93 for a couple runs. Not sure that I like Nordica, but may be I need more time to get used to it. Finally I was able to try 96 green ripstick at Alta. It was so much fun, so enjoyable, easy to make a turn in narrow spots. They do good at fresh powder, at least much better than mine. I liked those skis. Today in the shop I saw Nordica 94 unlimited and I figured out that it was much lighter than normal Nordica, checked the description and there is no metal inside and only carbon. Based on your review of the ultimate version, Nordica is supposed to be more like a ripstick than normal Nordica. I wish I could try Nordica before buying it, but for me the season is over. I am just looking for a new pair for next year. What's your opinion: which ski is the better choice, Nordica ultimate or Elan ripstick? In a normal life situation I would wait for next year and try Nordica, but due to the shortage of everything I'm not sure that Elan will be available next year and another point the price is good now. Is Nordica a better choice for a single pair of skis or elan will work just fine in all conditions?Thanks for your help.

HI Valentin!
I wouldn't go against your experience on the Ripstick in favor for an unknown. I certainly liked that Unlimited 94, but the Ripstick is more versatile in an all-mountain format. The Enforcer Unlimited 94 is stiffer overall than the Ripstick, and also lighter, so that can make it a bit chatty on firmer snow, while the Ripstick remains more composed. The Elan will work great in all conditions and terrain, I'd go that route.

Hi Lawrence,

It's doing that because we only do have the 188 in stock right now.

I’ve been skiing the last 4-5 seasons on a Head i Titan 80 ml under foot. I’m 62, 110 kgs, advanced or a bit more. When I bought the Head I thought it was an all mountain but over the past year years, I’ve had to follow my teenage kids down steep chutes, trees and bumps and I’ve found the Head is way too stiff. Last year I picked up an Atomic BC 100 which I really enjoy for easy of turn and playfulness after comparing it to the Nordic’s 104 Free - really close call (and really disliked the Mindbender 99Ti - way too stiff) to go with the Head. Now I’m looking for something in between when there’s less snow and easier to turn on steeps and take into bumps. I’m stuck between the Rustler 9, the normal Elan Green 96, Fischer Ranger 90 or anything else you may suggest. I also really loved the look of the Salomon GST 98. Sadly I’m only after 1 more for the quiver at this stage.

HI Mark!
Between your 80 and your 104, I think the low 90's ski like a Rustler 9 makes a lot of sense. Black Crows Serpo also comes to mind--very grippy and energetic but still has enough rocker to make it fun in the trees and bumps. If you like the QST 98 look, the 2023 QST 92 is similar but narrower. Have fun!

If I buy the Ski and binding package, do you install the bindings (or will I need to install)?
Question by: Ray on Apr 4, 2022, 1:34 PM
Hi Ray!
We offer mounting as a complimentary service as part of your order. All we need to get a ski mounted is the BSL (boot sole length) of the boot being used. Once you receive the skis the bindings will need to be tested at either a local shop or resort and at that time the DIN and forward pressure will be set.

Looking to get a pair of Elan Ripstick 96 Green or Black. I’m 5’10”, 175, 62 year old advanced skier.
What length would you recommend for me?
Question by: Ken on May 14, 2022, 10:14 PM
Hi Ken!

Since you consider yourself advanced I would recommend the Black edition. It has a more robust build and can handle more speed and aggression than the regular 96. The regular 96 is a bit soft and you might find yourself over flexing the ski if you push it too hard.
