We do not need to introduce the Speedmax anymore, it’s on every podium of every world cup and world championship of nordic skiing. The ski comes with a fresh look for 2018 which is an Olympic year but its construction remains identical. The only innovation we can mention is the binding interface. The ski comes with a IFP plate designed to work with Fischer’s newly developed bindings, the Turnamic. And if you have old boots, don’t worry, these bindings are compatible with the NNN, Prolink and Turnamic standards. The only system that’s not supported anymore is the SNS.
What are the specifications of the Fischer Speedmax Skate Plus Medium IFP skating ski?
Mainly designed for small or light skiers, this Medium version is soft and delivers a superior stability compared to a stiffer ski. Gliding feels more natural and the ski feels particularly comfortable on soft snow conditions. The camber doesn’t make the ski aggressive, tips don’t point down when you’re lifting the ski, it’s very stable and allows for long and efficient glide phases. The carbon tips offer that liveliness we all love during the kick and keeps the ski efficient on compact snow. The Cold Base Bonding helps keeping the molecular structure of the base intact to enhance its versatility. Sudden change (like sun / shadow) won’t affect your glide so much. The base named Plus Base is used by the vast majority of skiers as it offers performance in temperatures ranging from -5°C to +2°C, which are the most common temperatures in Europe. The honeycomb core reinforced with carbon and fibreglass ensures liveliness and reactivity and the Hole tip helps on reducing swingweight and increasing balance. The Speedmax Skate Plus is the perfect combination of performance and comfort.
Who is the Fischer Speedmax Skate Plus Medium IFP cross country ski designed for?
Men and women lightweight skiers with solid skills are the target audience of the ski. It is probably one of the best skis available on the market, suitable for soft snow conditions where the ski will float when firmer cambers would sink.
