The widest offering in Elan's Ripstick collection, the Ripstick 116 Ski's natural habitat is big mountains blanketed in deep pow. This freeride ski features Elan's TNT Technology, which integrates vibration-dampening Vaportip inserts at the tip and tail to an ultralight Tubelite wood core that keeps the ski light and stiff while reducing chatter when you encounter variable snow conditions. Elan's Tubelite core also features tubular carbon stringers that run from tip to tail for a surprising amount of stiffness. The Ripstick also sports Elan's versatile Amphibio profile, which consists of rocker in the tip and tail for float in powder and low camber underfoot for enough edge control to ride down variable conditions. Elan finished this ski's construction off with SST sidewalls to give you direct power transfer from side to side when you lay the ski on edge. SST also assures the durability required when you're skiing hard in big-mountain zones.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
