Product Description
obrien Designed for competition, the Elite delivers dramatic speed and agility, taking your skiing experience to a new level. All-new Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) prevents carbon slip, stiff points, and air bubbles during construction, leaving the body with clean, sharp edges. Stiffness is maintained through the sides of the forebody to take unnecessary weight out of the largest area. The 1/4" thick tip area retains maximum energy throughout a turn. At 0.800" thick, the Elite creates very little drag when the ski is on edge. The Extended Pivot Point towards the rear allows you to decide how aggressive you want the edge change to be. Rounded tail bevels allow the tail freedom in the rotation of the turn, eliminating resistance at the end of the turn so you can maintain momentum. Line Lock Lite Fin with Pro Wing.

        Comments about O'Brien O'Brien Factory Blemish Elite Slalom Ski, blank:

        At 66, I've skied for 55 years and I ski better than ever. Went from several skis but the last several years were great skis, KD 7000, SixAm and now the O'brien Elite. This is the best ski I've ever skied on; stable but very fast turns and crossing the wake. I still ski at 34 MPH, starting pass at 22 off and love this ski! Overton's sent this ski, no charge, got it in 3 days and started skiing! Great packaging, good setup on the ski. I'm a very happy man!

          Awesome ski that is very stable for deep water starts, great straight line stabilty when tracking behind the boat, very smooth and quick turns. If you think you are only an intermediate skier, this ski (and some coaching)will improve your skills way beyond your dreams. It is as good as the advertising says. Go and get yourself one.

              Nice ski, rides higher in the water than my older HO CDX requiring less work from the skier, accelerates faster
