AUBURN, NH – As the category leader globally for cross country skiing, Fischer introduces 2018 – 2019 product introductions and improvements to both in-track and light touring models. What is unchanged is its flagship ski, the Speedmax Skate Plus. As the most winning ski on the World Cup since its introduction, the most notable benefit to its continuance unchanged in the line-up is an increase in availability and a ski identical to those seen under the world’s best cross country skiers. [MSRP $800]
Adding to the Speedmax family for the 2018, 2019 season is the Speedmax Twinskin, a marriage of the dual mohair channel technology Fischer launched in 2017 with their highest level racing skis. Unrivaled performance in a grip solution designed for around freezing temperatures (common throughout most of the cross country skiing world), these skis will bear an MSRP of $750 and be available in the fall.
Fischer’s off-track options take a step forward with improved boot technology. Full grain leather throughout their BCX line-up mean more comfort, while a Triple-F membrane designed like an internal sock offer waterproof support for skiing through deep snow. Available in an NNNBC and 75mm toe configuration, either model sports and MSRP of $259.99.
Finally, the S-Bound lineup from Fischer gets tuned up with size adjustments. (Now available in four sizes from a 68mm shovel up to a 112mm shovel.) With Fischer’s Easy-skin technology for added grip (or a governor against icy crust), these are the SUV of off-track skis, capable of making low angle turns, but light enough for quick overland skiing.
