Fischer didn’t fiddle much with its 2018 collection, for the most part sitting on a pat hand. It made the Ranger 115 FR 100g lighter and a little more buttery than its predecessor so it makes a better match with Fischer Ranger Free 130 BC boot. (BTW, it’s awesome.) There’s also a new Ranger in town, the 102 FR, a ski made with equal measures of Power and Finesse.
Perhaps more impactful as far the U.S. market is concerned, Fischer inserted the My Pro MT 86 into its women’s line. The All-Mountain East genre is the easily the most important genre in the women-specific space, and the new Pro MT 86 shines brightly in this crowded firmament. As does the returning My Ranger 89, a ski we finally have enough data on to generate a score, which turns out to be on par with the overall market leader, Blizzard’s Black Pearl. You can’t be in better company than that.
