New technology

Josef Fischer sets new standards in ski making with the introduction of a revolutionary production technology. The Vacuum method creates a homogenous ski body in which ski forces can flow softly into each other. In cross country, it is the COMPOSITE CORE (lightweight core) that makes it possible to make the lightest cross country ski in the world.

Reinforcing elements developed especially by Fischer that take up only 20% of the space available enable series production for the new lightweight ski. This is the dawn of the lightweight era in cross country skiing.


Nordic dominance

Fischer looks after 151 top athletes from 16 nations in cross country, biathlon and ski jumping. Thomas Wassberg (SWE), Sergej Saveljev (USSR), Lars Erik Eriksen (NOR), Tommy Limby (SWE), Eugenji Baljaev (USSR), Toni Innauer (AUT) all win with Fischer products.
