The Elan Starr is the perfect ski for the young beginner, and the parents that are looking for a ski that will make learning very easy. Elan's U-Flex Technology uses ribs cut horizontally across the ski that allow it to be flexed easily, with minimal pressure applied to the ski. By having a softer easier flexing ski your little skier will have a more consistent edge contact and more control over their skis. The Full Power Cap Construction and Synflex Core only improve the forgiveness and easy skiing ability of the Starr. If you are looking for the easiest tool for your tiny skier to learn with, the Elan Star is the ski to have. [+]
