The Fischer S-Bound 88 backcountry skis strike the optimum balance between two extremes of backcountry skiing: one extreme being kick and glide stride backcountry touring on packed snow and/or powder across flat or rolling terrain, and the other being pointing the skis downhill and making turns. Featuring an 88mm-68mm-78mm profile, the Fischer S-Bound 88 skis provide ample width for good flotation and stability in deep snow, while still maintaining plenty of sidecut for cranking out easy and natural telemark turns. Although wide enough for good float in powder, the profile is narrow enough and the camber is snappy enough for superb glide on flats and rollers.
sidecut (width of skis): 88mm tip - 68mm waist - 78mm tail
The Fischer 88 S-Bound backcountry touring skis are compatible with any NNN, SNS, 75mm-3pin / telemark binding systems.
These performance back country touring, full metal edge, waxless skis are the ideal selection for those seeking a universally versatile solution for efficient kicking & gliding on flat and rolling terrain, while never missing the opportunity to ramp up the excitement with powder shots and downhill thrills. The mid-fat profile, ample sidecut, and lively camber deliver fun in all conditions.
Fischer S-Bound 88 Skis Highlights:
NORDIC ROCKER TECHNOLOGY: forces the tips upwards when pressured for unmatched control and reduced deflection resulting in superior control in the turns; provides superior flotation in deep snow also
SNOW SHOCKS: proprietary Fischer Skis technology, Snow Shocks are built into the ski to absorb vibrations caused from hardpack snow and icy conditions
OFFTRACK CROWN WAXLESS PATTERN: highly effective waxless skis pattern that is inserted in the ski’s midsection, delivering powerful climbing ability without sacrificing downhill performance; sintered glide zones for optimal glide (allows the option to apply glide wax to glide zones)
FULL METAL EDGES: for maximum control when making turns, traversing or slowing down and stopping
AIR CHANNEL WOOD CORE: for the perfect match of durability and weight savings
