Providing the right amount of flex in the junior ski range was one of the major design challenges Elan faced in recent years. Their award-winning U-Flex technology is the solution. The revolutionary construction of the ski increases the flex of the ski by 25 percent beyond the industry standard.

In combination with the lightweight Synflex core, Full Power Cap construction and Early Rise Rocker profile, U-Flex allows kids to learn to ski on their edges from day 1.

Meanwhile, the Quick Shift is a fully integrated binding system developed with a softer free-flex plate-in-plate design. This system utilizes lightweight materials with a lean profile and a softer plate to complement the ski design, making turning effortless.

This is a perfect junior ski and binding set in combination with Elan’s specially designed ski boots made of softer, more flexible plastics.

The Sky features a unique design that will appeal especially to girls and is a true eye-catcher.
