Elan is on top of the light- weight, high-performance game in the Ripstick lineup, so it makes sense that its new backcountry-specific Ibex line presents capable, easy-touring and easy-skiing boards. Featuring the brand’s signature Tubelite woodcore plus a damping carbon laminate and aluminum plate underfoot, the ski goes uphill like a dream and savors soft snow on the way down. The shovel was a bit soft and can get kicked around in less-than-ideal conditions, but the stiff tail compensates for when the going gets tough. 

Weight: 1,150g per ski (163)
