Elan 2020 ski reviews
The Wingman 86 CTI proposed by Elan had made a strong impression during pre-selection in January 2019. We included it in the Proskilab review, considering that the ski was perfectly suited to our specifications for this category. We were looking forward to having it tested by a team of professionals in a comparative situation with other market leaders.
The result did not disappoint us and the ski (a first in... Read on
Although the reviewers found the same qualities of the GSX Fusion from Elan, already tested last year, they also found the ski a little more accessible this year.
While its accessibility is good, it is somewhat lower than other models in this comparison. It is above all the performance–accessibility ratio that surprises the most.

The main quality of the Amphibio 16 Ti is its homogeneity. The ski is great in all areas:... Read on

There's nothing to say about the performance. The ski, equipped with two Titanal plates, does a great job and remains calm in all circumstances. The grip is excellent; it holds curves well, especially in large bends.

The Ripstick 96 from Elan is well known and appreciated by the Proskilab reviewers.
The ski is always "easy and pleasant" off-piste. It "floats straight away" in powder snow, pivots well in all conditions, including in the more difficult types of snow. Transitioning to choppy snow is good. It's a real treat in 20 centimetres of fresh snow.
On the piste, its behaviour is good.... Read on
