FISCHER

S-Bound 98

No changes for the S-Bound range. This is the 98mm version, which is best viewed as a slightly toned down version of the 112, but they share the same key points. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the "Rocker Technology", simply when you weight the ski rather than the tip and tail pressing into the snow they do the opposite. This has the effect of making the ski shorter, which does a number of things, it makes turning easier (cause you have a shorter turning edge) it increases flotation (never a bad thing) and also improves stability. The addition of fish-scales on a ski this wide means that you'll need to use climbing skins less often and you'll be faster covering specific types of terrain. On flat-ish ground a companion on traditional skis with skins won't see which way you went. The skis have a full metal edge and use Fischer's well proven sandwich cap construction, making them light and durable. Happy with a BC binding (and robust boot such as Fischer BCX 875) or a 75mm telemark binding and plastic boot like Garmont Excursion or T4. For people who have used Nordic skis around 60mm underfoot for years skis like this will amaze them with their stability and fun. If you've found the limitations of traditional Nordic gear in steeper terrain and don't want the weight of AT or Telemark these are worth a look.
