Looking for a similar ski as Elan Apex/Alu/888 186

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm not sure, correct me if im wrong, it seems that Elan Apex, Alu, 888 is the same ski.

 

I'm looking for a 186 length.

 

Any similar skis that would compare in terms of side cut, stiffness? (traditional camber, no/low rocker)

 

Thanks!

I loved the "Trip 8" when it came out, it was a great ski. The closest to the feel, shape and design of the old 888 is the new upcoming Head Monster 88. You will be able to get it in a 184. Check out the reviews in the Review Section.

Sorry, this was moved accidentally. Back where it should be.

I also loved my Elan 888 but it got replaced by a Blizzard Bonafide. Even more love.

Uh, you can still buy these online. So you want something similar, but you don't want another actual Elan?

I have a pair of new-in-wrapper Elan Apex 186 cm skis that I was about to put on eBay; please send me a PM if you are interested.

They are virtually the same ski. The second Alu series got replaced by the Spectrum series. Spectrum got replaced this year by Ripstick.
