Let's get one thing straight – the Amphibio 16 Ti2 Ti2 is not for the faint hearted! With a hefty amount of metal and a unique tech setup, plus a geometry to follow the tech, it is THE ultimate machine for any kind of groomed snow conditions. It rips the slope both in long GS turns and dynamic short slalom carves with ease, thanks to Amphibio 4D Technology. This ski combines the Amphibio profile, a smart combination of camber for greater edge grip and rocker for faster and direct turns, with a pre-shaped, vibration reducing titanium top that differs in the front and rear. A convex front will help you initiate a turn with precision, while the concave rear will make you exit the turn in a dynamic fashion. And to wrap it up, the aggressive and elegant graphics complement its character superbly.
AMPHIBIO 4DElan’s patented Amphibio 4D technology is the latest evolution in modern ski design. The 4D concept has traditionally flat structural layers in the ski strategically shaped in convex and concave forms in the tip and tail of the ski. This shaped structure concept, combined with the Amphibio profile provides unrivalled all mountain versatility, power and performance.
NANO TECH RUNNING BASEThe Nano Tech Running Base is a unique base material composed of nanoparticles that improves durability and provides ideal glide performance in all snow conditions.
AMPHIBIOThe Amphibio profile 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.
FUSIONFusion is Elan's original integrated binding system that ensures a smooth flex of the ski, that translates to easy turn initiation and quick and powerful edge-to-edge responsiveness. The synchronized toe and heel movement also allows for fast and simple binding adjustment.
RSTThe RST Sidewall Construction optimizes the transfer of power and energy from skier to the edge of the ski, providing maximum edge hold from the tip to the tail of the ski.
RESPONSE FRAME WOOD COREThe Response Frame Wood Core is a unique tip-to-tail laminated wood core that is the combination of a hardwood frame around a softer wood center. This construction is extremely robust and allows for a variety of flex patterns for different ski types.
DUAL TI / TI2
Dual TI is a sandwiched wood core with 2 layers of titanium. This construction provides superior edge control and a progressive flex pattern for high performance skis.
