They say

Versatile, quick, powerful and full energy-don’t let the waist width fool you. It will make you feel young again!

We say

As with all the Elan’s we tested, this was a really strong performer. The Amphibio had superb grip and edge hold at high speed, with a lovely predictable turn shape that gives the skier lots of confidence to push hard. This is matched up to a smooth flex and a sensitive touch underfoot. In soft snow away from the groomed runs it floats up easily and always feels fun and responsive to use. In short turns it doesn’t feel quick onto the edge, but overall this is a hard ski to fault which manages to fit the remit of all mountain performance while always feeling great fun to use.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Nice and strong in long turns, floats well in the soft snow.
Al Morgan
Playful and fun all mountain ski. It did just what you wanted on off piste and was fun to use.
