ALUSkiing icon Glen Plake helped develop this versatile 88 mm-waisted, freeride-friendly ski. Weight reduction is the main focus in the 888 ALU and Elan uses air channels along the laminated wood core combined with an ultra thin profile of aluminum to create a lightweight feel. Two sheets of titanium and sidewall construction add hard snow performance and stability. Maybon praised the 888's "solid edge engagement." "It's made for skiers who like to make slalom turns at moderate speeds," said Kasper. "It's a quick carver with a soft flex."
