One of the most versatile skis on the market, the Excursion enjoys nothing less than the revolutionary skin system from Fischer, Easy Skin technology. Particularly at home on all terrains, it’s the perfect backcountry ski for skiers wishing to go anywhere conveniently.
What are the features of the Fischer Excursion 88 Crown backcountry ski?
Based on quite deep sidecuts, it is easy to turn around on rough terrains where Telemark skiing is tricky. Its large tip takes on the turn without needing to force it, while the steel edge ensures unbeatable grip. In spite of its parabolic sidecuts, the ski handles well on slopes and the stiffness of the wood core prevents it from distorting laterally. In terms of grip, the scales perform well enough to pass through small valleys without difficulty, and if this isn’t enough, it is armed with the Easy Skin system, with a clip on the ski allowing you to join a skin onto the scale. Do bear in mind that the skin is not provided with the ski, it is an accessory that you have to add on if you need it.
Who is the Fischer Excursion 88 Crown backcountry ski aimed at?
It’s one of the most complete skis you can find for backcountry skiing. Fairly large and shaped to pass through all slopes with ease, it is also narrow enough to not be too cumbersome for crossing plateaux. It is suited to a very large audience that is looking above all for a wide range of uses. Its versatility will allow you to use it easily on all terrains, but you should be aware that it is a backcountry ski, not an alpine one.
