I'm looking for this years 78 ti's for a good price but cant find it anywhere!! I am really no good with the internet and feel I may be missing out on something someone else might know.
Thanks for the help in advance!
I've exhausted my resources by calling multiple shops in my area, north of my area south of my area and had no luck so far. I did an online search but I have no strength in the use of the internet for shopping and cant find the skis for anything else than the original retail price I'm terrible with tech. This is my first forum I've ever joined and I was just looking for some help. I was simply hoping someone who may pass by this post may have a link to a site where I might find some. Ive even been through all the epic ski member gear offers with no luck.
I've went through the forum in search of good online stores as well which still gave me no results. I'm not asking people to go completely out of their way for me, just hoping someone knows an online specialty store that I might not know about.
I was looking specifically for the 2013 - 2014 model, but I found a demo posting under the ebay link you posted - and am currently watching it now
thank you very much!
You must e a pretty big guy to be able to rock the 186. Mine are the 178/179 model and at 5'10" are perfect for me. Really a very good piste/hard snow ski.
I bought Elan Amphibio 78 Ti Fusion on skimonsters.com - Boston merchant; With the guided hope that I could improve my advanced-intermediate skiing with updated equipment from my Rossignol Avenger (so called auto-pilot rocker-camber-rocker skis for intermediates). What exactly gave me this hope for improving discussing the issue with an expert online are the following Elan specs:
1. Elan’s RST Sidewalls are no different than any other ski manufactures vertical sidewall construction used frequently with racing pro-equipment. The benefits are better edge hold and a more torsionally stiff ski. RST is strictly their name for them. A vertical sidewall is a vertical line from the edges up to the top-sheet vs. mass production of cap construction skis.
2. Amphibio unique technology Rocker has a Rockered outside edges of the ski in the tip and a cambered inside edge to provide you with really quick turn initiation on your uphill ski, and a high amount of grip on the snow with your downhill ski. The Amphibio Rocker is right and left ski specific.
3. Elan’s Waveflex Technology gives the ski an even and natural longitudinal flex, while having a high torsional strength, and vibration dampening abilities (no chatter with other words that compromises the stability especially on higher speeds and hard pack trails. All other ski manufactures have some sort of technology that does this as well (dampening the vibration especially).
4. A ski without rocker in the tail will exit turns stronger and provide more control as you exit a turn.
I really can't clearly diagnose my problem with painful thigh muscled I had when skiing rocker-camber-rocker skis before, whether it was my longer exit from the turns charging longer than need these muscles, or else in my technique but I do not think that I should blame my previous skis. So I was convinced that the Amphibio 78 Ti sounds like the perfect ski for what I'm skiing looking for, control, stability, maneuverability, with a touch of forgiveness and being still fairly lightweight for that caliber of advanced, even expert-enjoyable skis. Instead of demo them for a week or so and return if I do not like them I went and purchased this skis online with the informed hope that they will be a good upgrade from my previous Rossi. The expert online who evaluated my skiing skills sort of assured me that I definitely will be a stronger skier, and will have unmistakably the appropriate gear for it. It is your call to correct me if I'm wrong with this exciting Elan technology. I also will come back and describe additionally my practical experience with this new stand-alone ski technology. Your comments are highly appreciated about Elan technology and your take on it from your own experience.
Check with www.skimonster.com (Boston company which I already indicated in my posts). This is the site I used to buy from this fall my Amphibio 78 Ti Fusion, 176 cm on sale. The ski equipment included the Fusion integrated binding system and the binding itself was already pre-installed (just below $400). However pay attention on sale skis + bindings on sale are 2014/2015 season model.
And the difference with this year 2015/16 season model is that Elan added to the unique stand alone Amphibio Waveflex Fusion technologies one more exciting technology in building its construction (check the Elan site for the addition). Sure enough by buying last season model you can find on sale, while this season model from Elan will cost you with hundreds of $ more, if you believe that the newest technology except the double Ti layer added will benefit your skiing?
Even if you're a heavy and toll guy (I'm 6.2", 195 lbs, 68 of age) you do not need above 180 cm length skis these days - in order to carve the mountain groomed, crude or icy hard-packed mountain frontsides. The days of long skis is long time over, except you float in powder most of the time during the season. Check the combined table of weight + height to find out why you do not need ski length higher than your head).
