Based on a freestyle ski design, the Chainsaw has Elan's BC Rocker—full tip rocker with slight tail rocker to help with riding switch or floating through powder. Sutton said "it's a good combination of float, shape and a soft tip to allow access to multiple skill levels."Slanted Sidewall Technology tailored for wider skis (the Chainsaw has a 112 mm waist) adds both forgiveness and edge grip. Construction includes a laminated wood core and fiberglass reinforcement for torsional stiffness. "This ski can cut through crud and pow like its name," said Maybon.
