Through its seventy year history, Elan has launched a number of “disruptive” technologies that have revolutionised the sport – but none bigger than the Elan SCX. The SCX ski single-handedly opened the door to a completely new way of skiing – and introduced a new term into the skiing language – carving.
Rossignol Black Ops
In Rossignol’s words – the perfect platform. A progressive all-mountain gunner. Stomp and smear. Arc and carve. Boost and blast. Grease your ‘stache. This is the do-it-all, legit quiver-killing, weapon-of-one designed for givin ‘er hell all over the hill.
K2 has a long history of going against the grain when it comes to creating skis. Skis that have pushed boundaries, experimented with shape and technology. When it came time to innovate Piste Performance and All-Mountain categories, they went all out to change the game yet again. The result is DISRUPTION, with Dark Matter Damping for drastically improved edge contact for a smoother, more planted arc in hard snow.
A twin tip that is perfect for rookies, anyone can put their passion to the test on this ski and now the women’s and mens are identical! The Ranger gets its great backcountry properties and the high stability from its Sandwich Sidewall construction and Freeski ROCKER.
Want something totally different, how about a Head ski with electricity running through it to dampen the chatter as you ski…?
