Fischer Outback 68 Skis
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Fischer Outback 68 Ski leaves groomed trails and set-in tracks behind and prefers to pave its own path through untracked terrain. Its OffTrack Crown technology provides reliable climbing, 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 fiberglass wood core with integrated air channels saves weight, resists breaking, and distributes pressure evenly while 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 surface.
With stable steel metal edges to lead skiers safely through variable terrain far from any tracks or trails, the Fischer Outback 68 skis know no boundaries.
These backcountry skis are 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 and 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.
When you're out in the backcountry where there are no paths or borders, you need the powder-floating, easy-turning Outback 68 Ski from Fischer Skis. Based on their offtrack cruising ski line, these skis get lighter without reducing strength with an Air Channel Core - a hollowed out combination of wood and fiberglass. Meanwhile, a Sintec base with a grippy positive pattern takes the struggle out of your ascents. Does not include bindings.
