The latest addition to the Fischer S-bound series is the widest yet. The Fischer S-Bound 125 Crown Ski is a formidable backcountry all-rounder. Featuring the Fischer Offtrack Crown pattern, you'll have plenty of grip on the uphills, and when it comes to downhill, the 125-95-120 sidecut ensures you can carve it up with ease. These skis are also Fischer Easy Skin Compatible for superior uphill traction.

Occupying the sweet spot between Nordic touring and lightweight alpine boards, Fischer's S-Bound 125 Crown Ski is perfect for long adventures in rolling terrain, endless approaches, and quick cruises whether you mount them with Nordic bindings or a telemark setup. The 95mm waist and slightly rockered 125mm shovel is nice and floaty when things get soft, but the steel edges help you make alpine-style turns, even in variable snow, when you're heading down the hill. The S-Bound's best trick, though, is its OffTrack Crown fishscale pattern, which makes it easy to climb moderate hills without having to stop and skin up (if you need extra traction, just attach Fischer's Easy Skins, which attach quickly and simply to the base to let you conquer tougher, slicker climbs. While OffTrack keeps you moving forward, the rest of the Sintec base is waxable for smooth glide, and the Air Channel base combines wood and fiberglass to keep the S-Bound lightweight and lively no matter how you like to ski.
