Drahtguy Kevin: A dual-radius ski (14/12m) with tons of personality, the Elan SLX was super easy to turn with energy to burn in about any shape you want. The carbon plate underfoot combined with the metal ridge starting near the tip quiet the ski and smooth the tummy-tickling ride. Elan has a winner in this 68mm ripper.

Insider tip: This ski loves to be on edge.​

Tried the 2020 model of SLX and loved it. Such a fun, agile ski. It's a tad heavy for me as a daily driver but it's on the short list as a ski for more occasional use.

Reviews of this ski over the years are amazingly consistent. Will be looking for demo opportunities on the 160.
