Elan Ibex 84 Carbon XLT Skis
The Ibex 84 Carbon XLT skis represent the state of the art in light weight, high performance touring skis that perform equally well on the ascent and descent. The IBEX 84 Carbon XLT weighs in at only 1,000g (163cm) and targets athletes not shying away from long ascents. Despite the ultra-light feel of Bridge Tech, the ski remains stable even in harshest conditions. Integrated carbon rods assure powerful rebound, while the Carbon PowerShell adds torsional rigidity.
The ISPO Gold Winner Ibex 84 Carbon XLT is the ski of choice for touring skiers for their everyday adventure - driven by innovation and extra light weight. The 84mm waist provides confidence on exposed steeps and powder, while a lightweight and solid construction results in a ski that will never let you down.
This is one of the lightest touring skis available. The unique shape of the ski prevents snow from sticking to the top which makes the ski even lighter! The mountain rocker gives enough float during ascent in the soft stuff and confidence when charging on the way down, no matter the snow conditions.

Bridge technology is a unique design that reduces weight and enhances performance of Elan’s Adventure series touring skis. An ultra-thin shaped wood core is reinforced with bridge inserts from tip to tail to deliver torsional stability and superb power transfer to the edges.
The Mountain Rocker profile features a moderate tip and tail rocker for better float, easier turn initiation and versatility in varied snow conditions. Combined with a moderate amount of camber underfoot, Mountain Rocker also delivers great precision and stability on groomed slopes.
The Carbon Power Shell adds torsional rigidity to a light weight construction resulting in superior performance.
The TubeLite Wood Core involves two super lightweight Carbon tubes inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. Measuring 5mm in diameter and hollow in their construction, these tubes run along the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.
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.
Vapor Tip inserts are advanced composites that are integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.
The CYA plate is the binding mounting mat in the adventure series skis that is compatible with all commercial bindings and is reinforced with aluminium for safe and secure mounting.
