Fischer The Curv ReviewSeptember 22, 2016
- Super damp
- Speed hungry
- Loves long arcs
- Fantastic edge bite
- Very solid underfoot
- Not versatile
- Doesn't do slow turns
- Or short
- Requires your full attention
- Prefers to fly down every slope
Fischer's Curv offers one hell of an exciting ride, with speed, stability, and edge hold to spare, from the top to the bottom of every lift. It is not for intermediates, or the faint of heart. But if you want to rock and roll the groomers, this ski provides the heavy metal beat.

If that scares you, check out K2’s Super Charger, or Scott’s Black Majick. Otherwise, get ready to ignore the speed limit.Continue Reading
