This favorite from last year got a major construction overhaul to make it lighter underfoot while boosting its overall performance. Elan’s new Amphibio Carbon Line technology includes carbon mesh reinforcement for added stability and carbon rods inserted around the perimeter of the wood core for a playful rebound. A new tip and tail profile also makes turn initiation easier. Testers crowned the new Ripstick the zippiest ski in this category—as lively as last year, now more accessible to intermediates. 

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Forgiveness
