40 years of World Cup dominance

What emerged from a business trip to Scandinavia.

Fischer has dominated the cross-country skiing World Cup since the late 1970s. Whether for professional athletes or ambitious cross-country skiers, Fischer has become the epitome of success and top performance in Nordic racing.

When Josef "Pepi" Fischer returned from a business trip to Scandinavia to the company headquarters in Ried im Innkreis, Austria, in the 1960s, he was determined to apply his skills and innovative spirit to cross-country skiing in the future.

This is how the technology leader in alpine ski construction entered the cross-country skiing business at the beginning of the 1970s. Within just a few years, the company rapidly developed into the leading brand in the cross-country World Cup. With cross-country skiing icons like Thomas Wassberg, Fischer skis quickly became a "must have" for anyone striving for personal bests.

The limited RCC collection is a tribute to one of the many legendary ski designs from the house of Fischer and at the same time to all the successful years in the World Cup.

The design of T-shirts and Hoody from Hakro was created by our ski designers - inspired by the top model from the early 80s.
