Glen Plake´s first signature model has been a long time in the making and with the combined experience of Plake and Elan, a ski worthy of his signature is born. The Ripstick Tour 104 was designed and tested from the ground up by Elan ambassador and freeskiing pioneer Glen Plake, and blends the lightweight construction necessary for efficient ascents with the legendary performance and style of Glen. Developing a signature model ski with world-famous freeskiing legend Glen Plake was an honor. Plake is among the best freeskiers in the world and knows what skiing represents, which is why we broke the mold to create something worthy of wearing Plake's name. The Ripstick Tour 104 chassis is 104 mm underfoot and utilizes ground breaking carbon construction, to achieve what was believed to be an illusion; the perfect blend of freeride power and touring agility. Packed with lightweight carbon and Carbon Bridge Technology, it merges mind-blowing downhill performance with lightweight uphill capability. Plake's signature model was tested and confirmed with our C-RAIDER 12 tech bindings that are known for being strong, reliable, and lightweight, at just a mohawk-hair over 300 g. To complete the package, the Ripstick Tour 104 hybrid skins made with a mix of 65 % Mohair and 35 % nylon to achieve the perfect glide and grip ratio to support the ski in all situations. From the Alps of Europe to California's Sierra Nevada, Glen's ski is the choice for any freeskier seeking legendary performance and punk rock style.

The new Ripstick Tour 94 is designed on a wider platform, enabling the skier to float better, ski faster, and turn easier in backcountry conditions. It is built to blend high performance at a low weight, for the perfect mix of freeride downhill performance and efficient ascending capability. With Ripstick Tour 94, the confidence to conquer long ascents and charge challenging descents is the name of the game. Combining downhill performance with lightweight construction is an art form when designing skis. Luckily, the art of craftmanship is the heritage of Elan. The Ripstick Tour 94 exceeds all expectations of weight to performance ratios, thanks to extensive testing with our athletes and mountain guides. With their input, we created a super stable, poppy, easy to turn ski, which is focused on meeting light weight requirements to enable the skiers to explore the backcountry no matter how they accesses terrain. At 94 mm underfoot and with Carbon Bridge technology, the ultra lightweight construction has the support to deliver heavyweight performance to charge any terrain and tackle every ascent with speed and power. When combined with the 305-g C Raider binding and Ripstick 94 Tour skin, Elan delivers a complete package that allows you to access the best terrain and while achieving peak performance.
