Fischer has an exciting new entry to all-mountain skiing with its revamped Ranger line. The 108 Ti represents the pinnacle of all-condition, all-terrain performance with easy to access power and exciting responsiveness at just about any speed.
Wow! What a fun new ski. Designed with Aeroshape, Fischer’s take on making the ski thicker at the center with thinner edge construction for radically improved ease of initiation and improved power, the 108 was fantastically fun everywhere we took this ski. It has enough rocker to float and slarve, but plenty of edge hold thanks to the Titanal shell. The faster we went the better this ski performed, especially in off-piste conditions. Yet it still was easy to initiate at slower speeds.
The 108 was barely nudged out of the top spot in this category by Rossignol’s Soul 7. It’s probably a better pick though for skiers who want to swap a little of the Rossi’s playfulness for non-stop power and control.
