The Elan Ibex 94 Carbon XLT has a unique feel that everyone should try. A smooth and easy longitudinal flex paired with a hook-free tip and solid torsional stability makes skiing fun again. The relaxed demeanor and Mountain Rocker tip come together in joyous matrimony to provide a lively, surfy feel in powder and corn. However, when the snow gets firm and slope angle increases, the torsional stability ensures plenty of grip to get you down safely. It’s just good, old-fashioned fun. The Ibex 94 Carbon XLT is Elan’s ultralight touring ski that’s perfect for surfing low-density powder in the Rockies, feeding on corn in the Sierra, or anything in between.

  • Bridge Technology is a length-wise reinforcement that ensures edgy performance without resulting in an overly stiff ski.
  • Mountain Rocker provides solid flotation when it counts and will stay out of the way when you lay ‘em down.
  • Carbon Power Shell is a weight-saving, power-increasing, cocoon that wraps the ski.
  • Tubelite Wood Core replaces a small amount of the core with two 5mm carbon tubes that contour the sidecut of the ski for added power at a reduced weight.
  • Burly aluminum mounting plates are lightweight, will hold screws like a vise, and will survive a remount.
  • Vapor Tip Inserts at both ends of the ski help deaden vibrations so you stay calm and collected under pressure.

Update 2019/20: Elan slighly updated the graphics on this ski.

Question from George

I am wondering what the Ibex 94 has for sidewall construction. Sounds like a nice ski (I have a pair of Ripsticks), but skiing in the East and Europe, I need the edge hold only full sidewalls can offer.

Answer from TSB
Hey George, noting that we are talking the "carbon XLT" version of the Ibex (not the standard version), we wouldn't recommend the Ibex as a carving ski on hard snow -- it's flexier and more playful, and yes, utilizes cap construction rather than sidewall. If you wanted a versatile mid-fat ski that won't bat an eye at scratching down some blue ice, I would check out the Blizzard Zero G 95 or Ski Trab Mistico.

Question from Eric
I keep hearing complaints about the black topsheet--people say it causes snow to stick to the ski on the way up. That seems a bit silly to me, but is it a real concern?
Answer from jbo
Hi Eric, I haven't noticed much of an issue on mine. It's nothing some spray can't fix anyhow.
