Gorgeous, sexy, stealthy and more aggressive than the Venom Ti the Venom Black is swathed in carbon fibre and oozes class.
I really like the idea of Fischer producing an exclusive ski range sich as the Venom. Fischer have a vast wealth of knowledge in ski design and should produce a better performing ski than a couple of the smaller companies manage to produce with their products regularly breaching the 1500€ mark.
So a more aggressive side-cut, powerful carbon fibre construction and the Carbon-fibre Flowflex meld to give the skier a livelier, slalom-carver-like experience yet silky-smooth cruising attributes.

The manufacturer says this about the Fischer Venom Black Skis 2008/09:
With Flowflex Fischer created the world´s first “Skifahrwerk” (ski suspension system) which, for the first time ever, enables completely unrestricted ski flex without losing control forces. There is now also Flowflex in carbon, developed for the exclusive Venom line. Using the high-quality material carbon as the support plate for the Flowflex system reduces weight by a quarter and makes even lighter work of both skiing and handling the equipment. The exclusive carbon
Fischer is a synonym for quality and high-tech in the ski branch. With the Venom, you can now add exclusivity and individuality as well. Premium quality materials in making skis is something that is taken for granted at Fischer. The Venom, however, additionally stands out through its carbon surface and the carbon Flowflex – high-tech materials that are engineered with Fischer´s know-how from the automotive industry. The result is an exclusive ski line with an individual appearance and extraordinary design. And with a strong performance, of course. The Venom boasts optimum edge grip, outstanding torsional stiffness and it is lively even though it runs smoothly. The Venom models – Titan and Black – are available only from selected specialist retailers.
Flowflex was developed in cooperation with FCT (Fischer Composite Technology). FCT´s entire expertise in the automotive industry and in Formula 1 racing was used in the development of carbon Flowflex. Both Venom models are produced with a sandwich construction with wood core and double titanal shell.
Two models, two different geometries
Thanks to its Slalom geometry the Venom Black is ideal for skiers who love short, dynamic turns.
