Elan, handcrafting skis 100% made in the Alps for over 70 years, introduces special Black Edition skis to the 2018/19 collection on three models.
The premium, high-end skis feature a sleek, elusive all-black style with a state-of-the-art carbon construction for added value in both appearance and performance.
Elan’s Black Edition skis are built upon the same friendly chassis’ as the men’s all-mountain Amphibio, men’s freeride Ripstick and women’s Delight models. Each ski gains a carbon upgrade, both internally and externally. A carbon power shell wraps the skis’ internal wood core from edge to edge for added performance with more strength and power without adding weight, while the external carbon-finish on the top sheet adds style that stands out on the chairlift and ski rack with distinction.
Built to exceed expectations of the most demanding skiers, the Amphibio 16 Black Edition is equipped with Amphibio 4D technology in addition to layers of titanium and carbon that thrive at high speed and long radius turns on groomed runs.
