The Elan Black Edition Ripstick 96.

Building off the success of the Ripstick line, the Slovenian brand added a layer of black carbon to the Black Edition Ripstick that gives the ski a unique level of smoothness throughout the turn, and provides even more stability at speed. Testers gave it highest marks in forgiveness, indicating that this Ripstick won’t punish you for being a little less than perfect at the end of a ski day. 

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESS: Playfulness
