Designed for high performance all-mountain skiers, looking for versatility and power all in the same package.
Elan designed the Free Spice Ski for downhill divas who demand a powder ski with enough versatility for freeriding all over the mountain. With its fatty footprint the Elan Free Spice Ski floats with ease in deep snow. Verticals sidewalls and a fiberglass reinforced Truelite wood core give this ski the chops to tackle firmer snow and crud without sacrificing its lightweight, nimble feel.
“I had a pair of speedwave 12s, fantastic skis. Unfortunatly they bent at the shovel. Apart from that minor problem, which elan attributed to my skiing, they were alot of fun. Good at all speeds and the edge hold was supprisingly good given the stiffness of the ski. The only places where they were not so fun was unsuprisingly soft steep alpine and trees. I now have the 14s and they are far...” --BritishChap
“Greetings All, I purchased a pair of these after reading reviews but without skiing them. A few years ago a ran a pair of Elan Spitfires and had enjoyed them, so I jumped in. I mounted Fritchi Freerides on them and swap between a pair of older Technica's with Intuition liners and a pair of Garmont Axon boots. All in all, I have been very happy with these skis in varied conditions. BTW, I'm...” --MtMariner
The Mag 10 Ti is designed for advanced intermediate skiers expecting a light, maneuverable, all-mountain ski with superior torsional stability.
“I picked these up prior to the 2009 season and have not been disappointed. They handle all East Coast Skiing with ease. Great on the curd, powder, and glades. On the front side of things they carve well and have superior edge hold. Speed would be the only draw back.........if they had any!

“ I had these skis for a year and progressed very well on them; enough that I decided I needed to move up from a 168 cm to a 177 cm ski. In the 6 times I got to ski them they handled well. They maneuvered through all kinds of snow. I beat on the pretty hard learning to ski glades with thin cover and they held up great. One issue I found was that they were kind of unstable at high speeds, but...” --tylrwnzl
Developed to meet the needs of the more casual and recreational all-mountain explorer, the forgiving Magfire 8 delivers a supreme ride that goes big on versatility and performance, making it an easy choice for skiers wanting to stretch themselves on the mountain
“These were designed as all-mountain skis, but are rather thin in the waist by 2011 standards. That said, I haven't had any problem keeping up with friends with super-fat skis in 4-8 inch powder and crud. Other than that, I'm not really qualified to say much; I skied with 90's sticks before these and don't have anything modern to compare them to. I feel they have improved my skiing on black...” --ckot
