Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Well- I am a bit lighter than you- but often carrying a pack...

Petetheswede at 75kg has the 200cm:

Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

I suggest the Gamme 54 only because it at least appears so close to the current E99 to me- I have never seen the Gamme 54 in the flesh! Cannatonic has both skis I believe. As far as speed- there was an Alaskan distance-racer that bought both the Gamme 54 and the Mountain Race and was surprised to fi...

Re: Fischer Sbound 112 ?

Exciting!
A number of skiers on this site love the 88 and the 78.

Re: Faster Backcountry Trail Ski

Grip wax
Yes
Magic

Pretty sure Bob is all about grip wax

Ben is right- the Amundsen would be even faster!

But man I love open tips in hilly terrain!

I think I might hit the tree on the Amundsen...

Re: Fischer Sbound 112 ?

Hey Aqua, I found your original post- you speak both of downhill skiing through tight trees- but you also speak of XC skiing some 12 miles on trails as well. You also speak of wanting to stay light and soft with your Glissades. Do you have much experience downhill skiing with soft XC boots? I can sk...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

The S-98 will be easier to turn and be faster touring on the trails when things are firmer. I have no doubt that the 98 will be easier to turn on consolidated snow- however, I am not convinced that the 98 is a better XC ski than the 112. It would have to be more cambered, stiffer and straighter for...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Well- I think you would love either the XCD GT or the S-112 when the snow conditions are ideal. However- you are certainly not going to be able to drive either ski- at those waists- with that soft XC boot. For example, I can ride wonderful round smooth turns on my Annum with soft XC boots, but I cer...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

Comparing the 169 Sbound crown to OAC 160 XCD GT, I am not able to keep both, going to use asolo glissade 350 and 3pin with and with out cable, The xcd gt seams stiffer than the sbound. feedback on your thoughts, thanks These are both a lot of ski for that boot. The S-112 will be fine with that boo...

Re: 2015 Fischer S-Bound 98 Review S98

I am 5'6 155lbs no gear, I guess 2 questions 1) if I go shorter than recommended will this help with less camber and make it turn better ? 2) I would like to start out with my asolo glissade 350 and 3 pin cable to see if i can turn the ski do you think its possible or just go with Alpina Alaska 75m...
