Elan's All-Mountain Amphibio line includes six resort all-mountain skis ranging in width from a versatile 88 mm down to a carvy 73 mm, built for everyday skiing in anything shy of deep powder. (For something wider and more freeride, see Elan's new Ripstick line, with waist widths of 96, 106 and 116 mm.) All Amphibios (except the value-priced Amphibio 76) are metal-reinforced, wood-core constructions with edgy vertical sidewalls, designed for high-performance carving on groomed snow with just enough width for occasional fresh-snow encounters. (The 76 is metal-free.) Amphibio skis are right/left dedicated, with different rocker/camber profiles in the forebody. The inside edges are cambered all the way to the tip, so the working ski has the benefits of camber: tip-to-tail edge grip, and rebound energy out of the turn. The outside edges are rockered, so the uphill edge is looser in the snow, easier to pivot and steer, better able to absorb terrain shocks. The newer Amphibio 4D design also features Dual Shaped XTi, the performance-specific shaping of the profile of the ski fore and aft. In front, the top of the ski is convex, and the strength of its arch shape delivers strong pressure to the edge for precise turn entries. At the tail, the top of the ski is concave, delivering less edge pressure for mellow turn exits. The high-end models-Amphibio 88 XTi (88-mm waist), Amphibio 16 Ti, and Amphibio 14 Ti (both 73 mm)-are built on Elan's Response Frame Woodcore, which blends hard and soft woods, the dense stuff down the sides, for durability and edge power, the airier stuff in the middle, for lightness. The rest get Elan's Power Woodcore-a lightweight foam core reinforced with a frame of full-length wood stringers. The narrower Ti models (16, 14, and 84), have two sheets of metal, for maxium edge power and high-speed stability. In the wider XTi models one sheet is replaced with carbon-fiber reinforcement, to keep things light and responsive. All Amphibios except the 76 have RST vertical sidewalls, Elan's strongest, for maximum edge grip. Except for the system-only Amphibio 76, all are sold either flat or as a system, with an Elan-branded binding built by Tyrolia.
