    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. 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.

    Features:

    • Ski Weight (g/ski: 1540 +/-50g (180cm)
    • Profile: Amphibio
    • Technology: Carbon, Fiberglass, Tubelite Woodcore, Carbon Bridge Technology, 360° Sidewall.
    • Carbon Bridge Technology: A revolutionary solution where a single carbon rod placed on the upper part of the ski, provides stability, dampening, and vibration absorption through the tip.
    • Amphibio Profile: Amphibio technology is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. Amphibio skis feature a cambered inside edge assuring precision, edge grip and stability - while a rockered outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.
    • 360° Sidewall: 360° Sidewall is a unique and effective sidewall solution to maximize performance while keeping the weight low. Pyramidal shaped sidewall are positioned throughout the whole body of the ski, to increase vibration absorption and high-speed stability.
    • Tubelite Woodcore: To create the Tubelite Woodcore, two super lightweight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability. 
    • Carbon: Carbon is a lightweight and strong material that provides additional support and reinforcement in the part where needed the most.
    • Fiberglass Reinforcement: Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fiberglass is positioned either above or below the ski core and improves a skis structural integrity.
