Broke my Ripsticks!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Third run on my new elan ripsticks, absolutly LOVING them, I was really pushing them to their limits and took a really long and fast sliding fall when I finally did lose my edge. (Hey had to find out how far I could push them!) Anyways, I put my skis back on ski down to gondola, get back on and as im riding up I notice a HUGE crack through the topsheet in the upper 1/3 on the ski somewhat near the tip. It looks like it goes all the way down to the titanium top sheet. Took it them to a few repuatable shops where they had mixed feelings on how bad the damage was. Called my dealer and it looks like Elan will be replacing the skis. I hope I don't break my next pair because these things are AWESOME (other than them breaking obviously ...)

Maybe that's why they call them 'Rip'-sticks. They rip in more ways than one?

I have never had a problem with mine and have nothing but praise for them.
