The Ripstick 94 W is back—unchanged—for another season of shredding. Lady testers loved how the Ripstick rails on groomers and in the crud thanks to Elan’s signature amphibio profile, which reinforces the inside edge of each ski to make them more stable at high edge angles. While it definitely shows signs of Elan’s racing DNA (and favors strong ladies accordingly), the ski also scores high in flotation, making it a versatile all-mountain ski.

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Crud

WEAKNESS: Forgiveness
