The Amphibio 14 Ti features a variety of technology intended for on-piste performance. RST sidewall technology orients sidewalls vertically, designed to roll the ski on edge with ease. Response Frame Woodcore combines a soft inner woodcore with a hard outer woodcore, designed for a combination of stability and responsiveness. Dual Shaped Ti technology integrates a layer of titanium designed to stiffen the ski while reducing weight by replacing other bulkier materials. One section of the titanium is intended for snapping quick turns with the front of the ski, while the other is designed for a smooth and less hooky exit out of the turn with the back of the ski. This is also tied as the skinniest ski in the series with the Amphibio 16 Ti2. For a similar but stiffer ski with two layers of titanium instead of one, check out the Amphibio 16 Ti2. Elan's signature Amphibio series focuses on all mountain carving skis with unique Amphibio technology. This technology optimizes skis to be right- and left-foot specific, designed so that they'll always be edgier on the outside/downhill ski, where power and solidity is most needed, looser and easier to feather on the inside ski, for easy line adjustment. The inside edge of each ski is fully cambered, for maximum effective edge length when it's the outside ski in a turn. The outside edge is tip-rockered, so it's more buoyant and easier to pivot, with a shorter effective edge, when it's the inside ski. If you like to ski a little bit of everything and carve the whole time, this is one of Elan's best series to offer you. Elan, based in Begunje na Gorenjskem, Slovenia, was founded in 1945. Its U.S. headquarters are in West Lebanon, N.H.
