2023 Elan Ripstick 96 Skis
Elan Ripstick 96 Skis
The Elan Ripstick 96 Skis simply define all-mountain prowess. Rarely do we see a combination as effective in terms of true all-mountain performance, allowing skiers to truly tackle anything and everything that the mountain can throw at you. Built with Elan's Tubelite wood core, the Ripstick 96 has a lighter core with two carbon tubes/rods that run the length of the sides of the ski. This is a unique use of carbon, allowing the ski to flex and be energized in a 360-degree format, increasing both torsional and longitudinal response while keeping the weight to a minimum. Also helping with the maneuverability of the ski, the Vapor Tip inserts lighten the shovel of the ski, making the Ripstick 96 an exceptional floater as well as a strong ski in the crud and chop, mostly thanks to the suspension of the ski. Skiers should also take note of a true left and right ski, which is clearly marked just above the front of the binding. So, make sure the right ski is on the right foot, where it really belongs. Narrow enough for bumps and tight trees but wide enough to float on some decent snow, the Ripstick 96 is built for any and all adventures that you can configure. Advanced and expert skiers will love the all-mountain versatility and performance from the Elan Ripstick 96 skis.

The 2023 Ripstick 96 has the same construction as last years model so its going to feel the same as the 2022 ripstick. The only change is new topsheet graphics across the board for the ripstick lineup.
No new Black edition 96 for 2023 unfortunately. The 2023 Black edition is going to be a direct carryover from the 21-22 model year.
