THE PRO'S TAKE
Goes fast. CHECK! Long turns. CHECK! Two layers of titanium. CHECK!
If you like going fast and making long turns, the Elan Ace GSX is for you. These "cheater" race skis are fast and fun. They come with 12.0 GW Fusion X bindings.
If you're addicted to long, fast turns the GSX Fusion X is the right ski for you. Its race origin is obvious, whether skiing gates or drag racing with friends Ski-Cross style. The secret of the lightning quick response with world class precision is Elan's Ace Arrow technology. This technology combines the Power Rebound System combination of a lifted Fusion X binding system and a fully cambered carbon composite plate that work in tandem to boost power and rebound at the end of the turn, with two layers of titanium, upper shaped in arrow that loads extra energy to the edges and camber profile, and lower layer shaped in inversed arrow shape for a quickest and most responsive entry and stability at the end of turn. The R² FRAME Woodcore with two-layer titanium construction allows for direct power transmission, stability and edge control and RST Sidewalls for precision. All these components provide the perfect amount of performance that satisfies the most demanding skiers.
The Elan GSX is a great deal priced below many similar skis in its class. The GSX is on par or superior than many of its more expensive counterparts.
