Meet the slightly skinnier brother of the Fischer S-Bound 112 backcountry-telemark skis… introducing the all-new Fischer S-Bound 98 nordic backcountry touring skis. And just like the S-Bound 112, the Fischer 98 S-Bound skis feature the revolutionary new rocker engineering, an industry first in pure backcountry touring ski technology. What is rocker engineering you ask? Well unlike traditional pure telemark-back country ski cambers that flatten out when pressure is applied, the tips of the Fischer S-Bound 98 skis elevate and rock upward when pressure is applied. This allows the snow contact point of the skis to be located much further back. Effectively improving flotation in untracked, deep snow when kick & glide striding in back country touring mode, as well as phenomenal stability and control when carving out turns on the descents. The 112mm tip – 78mm waist – 95mm tail sidecut, full metal edges and Fischer Skis proprietary OffTrack Pattern waxless skis technology all work to define the Fischer S-Bound 98 skis as all-around, universal backcountry touring cross country skis. They are equally at home skiing hut to hut, exploring uncharted winter routes behind the house or taking on any steep and challenging terrain (superior grip and control on the uphills and unrivalled glide and stability for non-stop thrills on the downhills). Whether in ice and crud or fresh fluff and stuff, you can count on the Fischer S-Bound 98 skis to deliver.
