  • Solid carver
  • Damp feel
  • Very stable

The Bad

  • Little bit of work to ski
  • Not versatile
  • Too stiff for anything but GS turns
THE VERDICT

Fischer's Progressor is a stable, hard turning GS-style ski that will appeal to ex-racers and ski coaches but not general frontside skiers.

FULL REVIEW

Fischer’s F19 is a new model in its race-bread Progressor series, with the brand’s innovative Air Tec mode of shaving weight without sacrificing stability. As such, testers were impressed with the ski’s propensity to make super stable, grippy GS turns in hardpack conditions, as well as its propensity to mach out at speeds that could make your eyes water. As are most of the skis in this super competitive category, the F19 is going to be most popular with hard-arcing ex-racer types who like to ski like they are still knocking gates out of the way.

The ski did lose some points due to its inability to make almost anything other than a GS turn comfortably, but will definitely wow hardpack lovers who are looking for an aggressive ski they can enjoy riding all day.
