Detailed description

The Amphibio 8 is similar to its stronger brother Amphibio 10 Ti, yet a bit more forgiving. It is perfect for those who prefer a lighter and easier feel at moderate speeds, yet uncompromising when it comes to performance. The Amphibio 8’s precision and ease is a result of Amphibio 4D technology and unique geometry. The Amphibio profiles left/right design promotes turning ease on the rocker side, and edge grip on camber side. In addition, the 4D design improves initiation over convex fore body and a smooth turn exit through concave tail.

Core Technologies

Amphibio 4D

Amphibio 4D

Elan’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.

Profile

Amphibio

Amphibio

The 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.

Construction

DST

DST
The Dual Sidewall construction combines a vertical sidewall for optimized edge hold, combined with a cap construction and partial sidewall on the outside edge for smooth turning when wanted. The combination of both ensures power and performance with superior edge grip.
Core

Power Wood Core

Power Wood Core
The Power Wood Core features a power-frame composed of poplar that is vertically connected to composite laminates, a structure that provides increased torsional stability and responsiveness. This composite construction delivers enhanced edge hold in the tip and tail areas and a uniform flex throughout the length of the ski.
Reinforcement

Fiberglass

Fiberglass
A Fibreglass reinforcement optimizes the flex 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.
System

Power Shift

Power Shift

Power Shift is a free flex plate-in-plate design that maximises power and performance. 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.
