The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

Manufactured with the perfect balance of playfulness and power, the Elan 106 Black Edition ski is truly a quiver-killer! What makes it so? The skis Amphibio profile, Carbon Line, and QuadRod technologies. Elan's patented Amphibio profile involves a designated left and right ski which features longer camber underfoot on the inside edges and extended rocker in the tips and tails of the outside edges. The Carbon Line technology places carbon along the inner edge of the tip and tail sections. Finally, the QuadRod technology, which is unique to the Black Edition line, centers 2 carbon rods in the tips and tails of the skis. Together, these technologies equip the ski with impeccable grip, rebound, edge grip, stability, and power to plow through crud and chop.

The Elan Black Edition Line is sustainably produced: manufactured with more than 70% natural and recycled materials, 100% green energy in the process, and environmentally friendly printing for the top sheet! This is always a major deciding factor for me when buying new skis.

Ideal for
  • Best for advanced/expert all-mountian/freeride skiers
  • Cutting through crud, chop, and making a killer turn
  • High speed stability
Not ideal for
  • Not the most playful ski out there

The Elan Ripstick 106 Black Edition Skis are the ultimate powder ski that can handle hardpack with ease. Designed in collaboration with Glen Plake, these skis feature QuadRod Technology that challenges the notion that fat skis are only for soft snow. The TubeLite Woodcore is enhanced with four carbon rods for optimal balance and power distribution, while the Amphibio Profile is reinforced with Carbon Line for a smooth feel and great edge grip. An additional wall-to-wall layer of exclusive carbon under the binding ensures lightning-quick power transmission and stability without interrupting the natural flex pattern.

Key Features:

  • QuadRod Technology: Four carbon rods enhance the TubeLite Woodcore for optimal balance and power distribution.
  • Carbon Line: A carbon weave placed along the inside edge of the Amphibio Profile provides a smooth feel and great edge grip.
  • Wall-to-Wall Carbon Layer: An exclusive layer of carbon under the binding ensures lightning-quick power transmission and stability without interrupting natural flex pattern.
  • Stealth Camo Wrap: The black camo wrap gives these skis a sleek, stealthy look.
  • Lightweight Design: Despite their powerful performance capabilities, these skis remain lightweight for easy maneuverability on rugged terrain.

This ski is a one stop shop. Provides great stability at high speeds and really doesn't change from groomers to powder. I am currently on this ski, and have been extremely satisfied. I feel very comfortable carving at high speeds as the edges hold super solid. Highly recommended ski for the advanced/expert skier.

  • All mountain
  • Powder
  • Backcountry
Not ideal for
  • heavier ski for backcountry

Vince had some really great options from me to pick on when first connecting with him. As I was checking out Vince was blowing my phone up warning me I accidentally selected the wrong board size. Seconds from selecting payout I cancel the order re selected the size and got to pick the right board for me. Thank you again Vince!

I've been shopping on curated and bouncing ideas off of Alex for some time now, never actually pulling the trigger. My budget has been hit and miss and often I've had to forego new in favor of used when it finally comes to the purchase. Alex has always been so helpful and ready to give advice on what gear is going to be best for me. I'm sure he'll be shocked when he sees I finally made a purchase 😅 thanks bud!

I've been looking to add new skis to my quiver after demoing Rossignal powder skis in Utah. I liked the demos but wasn't sure if they were the right choice. Tucker shared a few similar skis and one was the Atomic skis I had also demoed in WY. I settled on the Rossignal and Ticker also setup a bundle with recommended bindings for the skis. Overall, a great experience while making a sizable investment to enhance my skiing experience.
