Fischer RC4 Race RC Pro SP Skis 2008/09

Fischer RC4 Race RC Pro SP Skis 2008/09

A true race-carver – essentially a de-tuned GS ski with a touch more sidecut, a lighter and more manageable construction for advanced to expert skiers looking to ski really fast, make some great sweeping arcs and have a wail of a time on firm, groomed runs.

Many ski instructors love this ski, not particularly for teaching but for high-speed thrills without going to the extremes of a full-bore FIS GS model. This is a 911 for the street as opposed to a “Le Mans racing” FIS ski that can be a hindrance on the average groomed run unless you are a seriously technical and fit skier.

I love all the Fischer race carvers, I love how the positive shaping of the tip just begs you to arc them harder, the plate and binding combination give you a smooth and controlled flex whether the ski is designed for shorter or longer turns such as this RC model. In all an excellent GS-style carver with heaps of power, agile dimensions and weight and a truck-load of fun in the right hands.

Superb but am getting tired of the same graphic year after year – as can be said for many of the race skis from virtually every manufacturer!
