Are you planning to ski this year, no matter how odd the situation is? 

We hope you do!  

We are making researches into touring equipment like no year before. This is your chance to participate and develop guidelines for the new touring lineup. All together with a premium ski brand that has deep roots in innovation. Selected ones will become part of the Elan Prototype Test Team along the way.

With over 30 different construction and geometry prototypes, more than 35 ski tests evaluated in all kinds of conditions that the mountain has to offer and 25 people involved (including IMFGA representatives), we came up with a prototype touring ski that needs some final fine-tuning and your help too, before we launch it to the market and ISPO. You are invited to participate in this project which will happen in four phases: 

1 phase:             Collection your feedback through an online survey 
2 phase:             100 testers will become part of the Elan Prototype Test Team and their mission will be to test out the prototype version in different kinds of snow conditions. 
3 phase:              Provide prototype reviews 
4 phase:              Share Opinions and product reviews throughout the Social media platforms and participate in the final award price game. (Skiing with Elan Ambassador and a trip to Elan HQ). 

We hope that you will enjoy being part of an elite group to test the new generation of touring ski models and help to define our newest lineup of skis. Keep in mind the prototype ski that you will test is 90% of the final version which will be launched at ISPO MUNICH 2022. The new ski is a complete redesign in every aspect, with one job, to tackle any kind of touring situation that you can encounter.  

Remember that the ski you will test is a prototype, small changes in construction, design, and color can occur at a later stage based on your feedback and comments. Details about the ski will be shared with you after the project is completed.
