Be sure to take out the Fischer E89 Crown Ski for fast-gliding access to untracked snow covered terrain. The E89's narrow design and steel edge provide optimum performance on flat terrain and moderate climbs while the OffTrack Crown underfoot provides powerful kicks with minimal effect on gliding.
The Fischer E89 Crown is a fast and light, traditional length nordic touring ski with a non-traditional feature- partial length metal edges. Narrower width promotes good glide, and allows the E89 to fit in machine groomed trails. The traditional length adds flotation when tromping through a few inches of new snow. The metal edges are placed at the tip and tail, with hard ceramic edges in the middle; this technology avoids the common problem of metal edges degrading touring grip. A great choice for those who like the extra security of metal edges, but don't like the plodding feel of so many metal edged x-c skis. Pictured with bindings; bindings not included.
