Your kid's first experience on the slopes should be fun, easy, and packed full of good memories. Elan gets this, so that's why it made the Kids' Sky QT Ski with EL 4. 5 DIN AC QT Binding, which is a fun and forgiving ski that was specifically engineered to make your kid's time on the slopes more enjoyable. The secret you ask' Well, Elan borrowed technology from modern day running shoes and integrated U Flex channel throughout the ski, which allow the ski to flex the same way the sole of shoe does, making the ski 25% softer than a ski of the same length. This technology doesn't just make the ski more forgiving, but a whole lot easier to turn, so your kid will be carving before you know it.
