The Fischer Outback 68 Ski leaves groomed trails and set-in tracks far behind with a design that prefers to pave its own path through untracked terrain. Its OffTrack Crown technology provides reliable climbing ability, while the Outback's Nordic Rocker profile makes it easy to turn downhill and easy to float in anything from smooth, soft snow to ankle-deep powder. A lightweight wood core with integrated air channels saves weight, resists breaking, and distributes pressure evenly while a sandwich cap construction makes the Outback lightweight and durable. Fischer's proprietary Offtrack Crown pattern (a molded, positive-kick pattern inserted into the ski's midsection) gives you waxless kick with exceptional uphill grip, kick, and glide, while narrow steel edges along the length of the ski guarantee constant edge contact on every snow surface.


Backcountry skis made for the adventurous skier who wants to break his own trail. They're excellent for daylong backcountry tours or for multiday winter backpacking trips. Full metal edges allow outstanding control on descents. Mid-length design provides more control and better maneuverability. The Offtrack Crown base is the latest in waxless technology. It features a progressive depth pattern for more gripping surface area underfoot. Transitions to less depth at the end of the pattern for better glide. Nordic Rocker camber keeps the tip of the ski up for better float and glide. Air Channeled wood core is superlight and durable. Imported.
