Elan 2020 ski reviews
The Elan Wingman 86 CTI made a strong impression during the pre-tests in January 2019. We included it in the Proskilab test thinking that the ski perfectly fulfilled the criteria of this category. We were eager to have it tested by a team of professionals on snow in a side-by-side test with the other big names in the industry.
The ski did not disappoint. It earned a well-deserved “Best Ski” award... Read on
The testers said that the Elan GSX Fusion had the same great qualities as last year’s model but thought this year’s model was a bit easier to use.

The best thing about the Amphibio 16 Ti is that it is reliable. The ski performs... Read on

The Elan Ripstick 96 is well-known and liked by the Proskilab testers.
The ski is still “easy and fun” off-piste. It “floats immediately” in powder, pivots easily in all conditions, even in difficult snow. It cuts through crud well. A total blast in twenty centimeters of fresh powder.
On groomers, performance is good. The Ripstick 96 is playful and confidence-inspiring as... Read on
