The new Wingman line bridges the gap between Elan’s piste-specific Amphibio line and the hard-charging Ripstick family. The 86CTi is packed with tech, including specially cut Titanal sheets that increase power transfer to the inside edge, and carbon rods integrated to provide energy throughout the turn. Testers marked the Wingman 86CTi as the best of the bunch on crud.
