If there's snow on the ground, you're seeking it out in the S-Bound 98 Crown Ski. Exploring the backcountry is the best part of winter, and you're not about to let steep hills slow you down. In addition to Offtrack Crown, a climbing-system that provides great off-track climbing in difficult terrain, the S-Bound 98 is equipped to attach Easy Skin (sold separately) quickly and easily for when Offtrack Crown no longer grips. While you are exploring, the Nordic rocker camber enables you to glide over unprepared terrain so you don't need to change routes for less than ideal conditions. To also aid in gliding, the ski has been universally stone ground for perfect gliding properties in any snow conditions. For high control and maneuverability, the steel edge gives constant contact on any surface so you can change course quickly. The slightly wider sidecut also aids in ease of turing and better flotation in deep snow. When the terrain gets rough, no need to stress about damages. The ski is more resistant to breaking thanks to the Air Channel core that saves weight and better distributes area pressure.
Fully featured for a great backcountry ride, the S-Bound 98 pairs the excellent climb of the OffTrack waxless pattern with 29mm of sidecut and Nordic Rocker for good float and easy turning.
Prepared to handle the most aggressive terrain: The Fischer S-Bound 98 Crown Ski is fully loaded with Backcountry technology for maximum control, maneuverability and easy climbing. Compatible with Fisher Easy Skins for superior climbing performance.
