Fischer’s line of classic skis with skins appeared last year for the first time and was obviously a successful launch. The smart skinning system offers an excellent glide to grip ratio.
What are the specifications of the Fischer Twin Skin Race Medium cross-country ski?
The gliding performance is excellent. The way the skins were designed allows the ski to deliver a race-like feel. Skins are trimmed to adapt to each area of the ski, with longer hair on the midsection and on the tips in order to enhance the glide. The ski geometry looks very much like a race ski with identical sidecuts. The only difference stands in the construction of the ski and its selected materials. Its medium camber maximises the ski grip even on the most compact snow.
Who is the Fischer Twin Skin Race Medium cross-country ski designed for?
A ski like this is targetting a vast majority of skiers, as long as you are sporty, you are going to get on well with it. It can be a great training partner for skiers who lack of time for working on their waxing. Or it can suit a Fitness use for less experienced skiers looking for excellent gliding performance without needing to use grip wax. You will appreciate the way it accelerates through the gliding phase and how easy it feels to make it grip.

Ultra light and torsionally stiff construction. Stable sidewalls. Basalt fibre reduce weight and offer great flex properties, whatever the temperature.
Race ski construction with long, dynamic wax pocket pattern for minimum wax loss through friction. Ideal for: cold conditions and dry wax conditions.
Universal structure, ideal for changing conditions. Produced using a natural diamond.
The finishing touch now comes from Finish First: the term that covers and unites all the individual technological steps in the course of the final treatment of the base.
Reinforced ski chassis ensures longer service life. Homogeneous pressure distribution ensures uniform wax wear.
The next generation in ski pairing: fully automatic dynamic measurements of a multitude of pairing criteria ensures precise ski choice and optimised pairing.
Infrared preparation of the base with hot fluorinated wax. Great glide properties, protects from dirt and oxydation. Powered by Swix.
Two separate skin strips arranged in offset positions and with variable base-depth integration result in smooth and balanced gliding. Mohair skins ensure you can rely on the kick action, especially in hard or icy conditions.Thanks to the unique Teflon coating of the skins, moisture absorption and subsequent icing is completely minimised.
