Fast fun: Recreational Race skis
Have you classic skied before and want to level up? The Aerolite line is perfect for beginner skate skiers and fitness enthusiasts. With these skis, you’ll get access to Fischer’s award-winning ski technology, including AirCore, in an accessible and stable package. If you’re a proficient skate skier looking for a lighter and higher end option, the RCS Skate borrows even more features from its high-end siblings while still being reasonably priced.
Toeing the Race line: Speedmax
The pinnacle of race performance is Fischer’s Speedmax skate and classic skis. These are the skis you’ll find on the feet of World Cup athletes and other elite racers who want the best equipment available. In addition to industry leading bases, cores, and construction, they incorporate more carbon fiber than any other ski in the Fischer line. A step down from Speedmax, but still extremely high-performing, is the Carbonlite series. These skis incorporate many of the structural features of the Speedmax but at a lower price point. Either the Speedmax or Carbonlite skis are the best options if you’re looking for high-performance race skis that can hold up with the best in the world. Race skis are not as forgiving as fitness skis, however, and can be more difficult to ski without proper technique.
