There is no way around Fischer when it comes to Nordic equipment. Whether you are a racer, a recreational skier or sporty newcomer, every cross country skier can count on top equipment from Fischer. And this has been underscored once again by the results of independent ski tests in the run-up to the 13l14 season. In the test conducted by xc-ski.de, for example, Fischer emerged as the test winner in eight of the nine ski categories and in both boot categories. At the Academy Awards it would be: "And the winner is …Fischer!"
The equipment was put to the test by six professional testers at the indoor ski centre in Oberhof at a constant ambient temperature of -4°C, -6°C snow temperature and ideal conditions – with great success. Boots were also put through their paces for the first time so they could be judged afterwards. Each of the six participating manufacturers provided their top model for classic and skating. Criteria included, for example, ease of putting on, kick performance and lacing. The testers were thoroughly convinced by the RCS Carbonlite Skate
and RCS Carbonlite Classic
models with both of them being named winners in impressive style out of a total of twelve pairs tested.
The superiority of the Nordic number one could also be seen again this year in the skis: a model from the Fischer line (which will be available from specialist sports retailers this autumn) won the test in eight of the nine categories. The field was led by the new generation of racing skis with Speedmax Classic
and Speedmax Skate
which proved to be second to none in the Race category. The RCR Skate
was also named "Price-Performance Winner" in the Performance Skate category. The other winning models in the respective categories were RCS Crown
(Performance No Wax), RCR Classic
(Performance Classic), CRS Skate
(Sport Skate), CRS Classic Vasa
(Sport Classic) and Orbiter
All in all, if you decide to buy new equipment from Fischer then nothing will get in the way of sheer enjoyment when you are out cross country skiing.
