The first thing testers noticed about the Ripstick 106 was its light weight.
The second? It’s quick and nimble, making it a joy to ski in tight tree runs and steep, rocky chokes. Featuring a full wood core with two carbon channels that run the length of the ski, plus composite inserts in the tips, this ski is quick and agile at moderate speeds and tackled a faster pace with dampness and quiet assertion. 

Strength: Quickness 

Weakness: Crud Performance
