As big fans of the Ripstick we're very excited about the new Ripstick Black Edition Skis. Built around the chassis of the original model the Black Edition still exists to prove that this powder ski can rip groomers as well as it floats through storm days thanks to plenty of tip rocker and edge-specific camber profiles. The Black Edition introduces two additional carbon rods that shed weight in order to improve agility and add torsional rigidity to make the ski well--more rip-able. The balanced 106 waist is designed to do it all and the ski's shape is drawn from a big-mountain influence. The balanced rocker profile features camber underfoot for a quick edge to edge transfer only this camber profile is a little different when compared to the rest of the market. The skis feature an asymmetrical design with more camber on the inside edges tailored specifically to the left and right ski for improved grip.
