Fischer doesn’t F-around when it comes to carving skis. The Austrian brand is über focused on winning World Cup races, where its best results in recent years have come in slalom. A SL race ski is essentially a carving ski on steroids, made to the precise specifications mandated by FIS, ski racing’s governing body. If you want to really test your mettle, you can always seek out a Fischer FIS SL, but unless you train over 300 days a year, I wouldn’t advise it. If you belong on a true race ski, most likely it will find you, not the other way around. The idea behind The Curv GT is to use more or less the same race construction but to jigger its shape to make its immaculate carves more etch-able by the “average” expert. All of the 3 Curv models use a Triple Radius sidecut that begins and ends gradually, connected by a tighter turning section underfoot. As long as the skier maintains a fairly upright stance at a shallow edge angle, The Curv GT behaves like a GS; if he drops his hip until it nearly brushes the snow, the short radius section will dictate a tighter trajectory.
