RIPSTICK 96 BLACK EDITION

Tactical Freeride

A perennial favorite of magazine testers and professional skiers alike and known for its stable, powerful feel, the new Ripstick 96 Black Edition is ready to over-deliver on their promise to skiers looking for the ultimate, all-condition freeride ski.

Ripstick 96 Black Edition exhibits an uncanny blend of versatility and stability to conquer any conditions the mountain has to offer. On hardpack, it performs smooth and confident like an all-mountain ski, while in soft snow, it floats and slashes like a big-mountain ski. The Tubelite Woodcore, featuring, two carbon rods following the sidecut has been enhanced with new QuadRod Technology; two additional carbon rods located in the tip and tail, for elite power transmission with a balanced feel. Carbon Line, a mesh carbon weave located along the inside edges of the tip and tail is bonded by an additional layer of carbon under the binding for superior smoothness and promotes a natural flex pattern for intuitive power transfer with ease. Both technologies amplify our asymmetrical Amphibio profile to bring exceptional edge grip and maneuverability to our most versatile shape. All the tech is wrapped in a tactical looking black-on-black camo wrap, giving this all-terrain weapon a sophisticated, stealthy, look and feel.

Testimonial Image

Stable at speed, strong edge grip, easy maneuverability, a lightweight feel, and still a playful Ripstick attitude. That’s a lot of boxes to check, and the Ripstick 96 Black Edition is easily one of the most well-rounded all-mountain skis we’ve tested recently. Sure, there are skis that will “beat” it in singular performance characteristics… like there are skis that are stiffer, and there are skis that are lighter, but when it comes to versatility and having an even mix of performance characteristics, it doesn’t get much better than this.
