The 2018 Elan Explore 8 Ski with EL 10.0 Bindings delivers a superior on-snow feel for intermediate riders who want to advance to the next level quickly as it provides an excellent combination of comfort, easy handling, and stability.
WaveFlex is Elan’s unique waved profile on the top of the ski that provides smooth longitudinal flex for easy turning and torsional stability for enhanced edge grip. Never before has a ski design allowed the combination of these two characteristics together in a single ski.
Parabolic Rocker: This unique profile combines a generous amount of sidecut with the Early Rise Rocker profile. The result is easy turn initiation with less effort. Add to that the Front Side Stabilizer which absorbs vibrations, enhances edge hold and provides superior control.
Light Shift is a free flex plate-in-plate design that maximises performance with less energy input and at an incredible light weight. Its lean profile is constructed with lightweight composites and vibration absorbing materials to ensure a smooth and direct transfer of energy to optimize precision and performance.
Full Power Cap is a traditional cap construction that is light, easy to turn and forgiving.
Dual Wood Core features two symmetrical wooden stringers placed on the outer edges of the composite ski core. This construction improves power transmission and edge hold while keeping ski easy to handle in various snow conditions.
A Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the ex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fibers are positioned either above or below the ski core and improve the ski’s structural integrity.
