Great! This ski looks the business and is an excellent performer. The finish of this ski is superb, the graphics and window into the core of the ski work very well as does the colour scheme. On-snow they don’t disappoint with their playfulness, I thoroughly enjoyed how you can throw them around on all sorts of terrain at the side of the piste, they are nimble, light, stable and great fun, highly recommended if you have never tried a pair of Freeride skis. In fact I think the Watea 84’s are amongst the best allmountain skis available from my ski experiences and for the majority of holiday skiers looking for a ski to really throw around the hill you won’t be disappointed…..mind you don’t expect a pair of piste carvers, this is a pair of skis that loves mixed terrain and snow conditions- kinda like a 4×4 for your feet.
The manufacturer says this about the Fischer, Watea, 84, 2008:
Untouched slopes. Leaving your own tracks on virgin slopes with masterly powder turns and sprays. Making full use of a construction that stands up to the toughest of rides. A technology that thanks to its wide body structure and the integration of analogies from other sports, creates the ideal setting for individual performance. For people who want to go all out and their own way both on and off-piste.
For novices. The ski to enter the world of Freeriding. With lightweight and stable I-Beam construction. Perfect for off-piste but also an excellent all-rounder.
