Elan Skis handcrafting 100% manufactured skis in the Alps for over 70 years, understands the high demands of a backcountry tour adventure, where weight and performance are equally important. The all-new Elan Ibex ski collection is designed to achieve both demands without compromise.
Five new models complete the Ibex collection and all range in the mid-fat category from 84mm to 94mm underfoot, wide enough to maximize the downhill performance, but also minimize the uphill weight. Each model features Elan’s Bridge Technology, which creates a unique 3D shape for torsional stability and naturally sheds snow to keep the uphill carry light. The 3D shape is produced by a thin Tubelight core, two carbon tubes are routed along the skis’ perimeter, topped with an AluPlate for screw retention in the mid-body and lightweight Vapor Tip inserted in the forebody for reduced weight and vibrations, creating a strong, light and smooth performance.
The Ibex 84XTL and Ibex 94XTL boasts a lighter construction by reducing the weight of the core with a Carbon Power Shell, a tip to tail carbon layer. Opposed to applying carbon on a flat ski, the Carbon Power Shell applied on the 3D shape of the Ibex chassis enhances carbon’s natural strength for an overall lighter and stronger ski.
