Rip­stick Black Edi­tion

Powder - - SKIS - —Julie Brown

$1,000 D: 134-96-113mm R: 18m A feistier ver­sion of the Rip­stick 96, the Black Edi­tion has the same side­cut, turn ra­dius, and Am­phibio tech­nol­ogy, with a side­cut spe­cific to your left and right foot, which, in the­ory, makes it eas­ier to turn. But the Black is built with car­bon in­stead of fiber­glass, which gives it a more ag­gres­sive per­son­al­ity. This baby doesn’t like quick turns. It packs a ton of power and flies down the moun­tain in huge arcs. As Red lo­cal and Pow­der Union skier Jeremy Har­vey says, it’s full send or noth­ing. “Sexy!” he said. “Strong and stiff for groomers. It plowed through the crud and held shape.”
