Binding Installation Info

I AM LOOKING AT BUYING SKIS & BINDINGS ONLINE, DO YOU MOUNT THE BINDINGS FOR ME BEFORE THEY SHIP?

Skis with Bindings purchased online do not get shipped with bindings installed.

When we supply both skis and bindings, binding installation and adjustment is free of charge.  However, this procedure cannot be completed prior to shipping as the binding adjustment must be done with consideration to the skier’s boot sole length, weight, height and skiing ability.


This procedure will be performed free of charge by our licensed technicians at any one of Kunstadt Sports locations.

In case visiting a Kunstadt Sports facility is not practical, bindings will still need to be installed and adjusted by a local licensed technician. This policy is mandated by regulations to assure skier’s safety.

Description

The Elan Ripstick Tour 88 is the ski that the touring world has been waiting for. Lightweight, floaty, fast, stable, strong, and versatile - all at the same time.

Designed with our freeride athletes and guides that demand perfection everywhere they go, it's ground-breaking construction has allowed us to drop the weight to a minimum and push performance to the maximum, while maintaining a playful feel for all aspects of the journey. This 88mm waisted ski is very light and easy to maneuver, yet deftly capable, making it a true modern touring ski.

The free touring segment is the trend in alpinism; combining light equipment that performs in powder and remains stable in variable conditions is essential. The Ripstick Tour 88 is the perfect waist to feel confident on descents and narrow enough to enjoy comfortable, long uphill ascents, making it the sweet spot for touring skis. At approximately 1250 g per ski in length 170 cm we've targeted the optimal weight for a touring ski, without sacrificing downhill stability and performance. When paired with the 305 g C-RAIDER tech binding and Ripstick Tour 88 skin, there is a complete, lightweight package, that will perform and inspire. With carefully designed CARBON BRIDGE TECHNOLOGY, we implemented a carbon rod reinforcement to connect the energy of the ski for a smooth feel with playful rebound. The length of the reinforcement is designed to exact measures to reduce vibration and tip chatter. A reduced sidewall shape gives the ski a unique look with functional weight reduction, while full sidewalls increase edge pressure and contact. With a freeride profile and shape, we've assured this is the perfect combination of weight to performance ratio for all skiers, in any conditions found in the backcountry.
