actually, the ARG does use Elf Tech, is says on the site:
The ARG is optimized for the deepest snow imaginable—maximum rocker, minimum sidecut—but because it features Elf Shoe Tech, the ski nevertheless performs in a variety of conditions. From wind-hammered snow to cut-up powder fields to the hard pack you encounter skiing back to the lift, it floats when you want it to and turns when you need it to. AR 50 Sidewall construction combines the benefits of cap construction with those of ABS, while the Ultra Light Hybrid Core ensures that what looks like a tank skis like a coupe.
