The Fischer Excursion 88 Crown gets a big upgrade for the 2015-16 season with the revolutionary EZ-Skin climbing skin system, an integrated climbing system which makes attaching climbing skins for improved uphill grip easier than ever. The Fischer Easy Skin (50mm and 65mm wide sold separately) is a custom climbing skin designed exclusively for the S-Bound models that clicks into place through a slot located near the tip of the ski and attaches with special adhesive to the base directly over the scales, significantly boosting uphill grip for long, steady ascents and for when traversing hilly terrain. When the EZ-Skins arenít necessary, Fischerís stone ground Sintec base and OffTrack Crown waxless pattern deliver reliable grip in all snow conditions as well as efficient glide for kicking and gliding over flat and rolling terrain while the full metal edges provide control for slowing, stopping, and making turns. With a profile of 88/68/78mm, the Excursion 88 provides good stability and floatation in untracked snow and in challenging terrain. When cruising packed snow trails, a lively camber makes it roll on flats while the sintered, factory stone ground base in the glide zones enable smooth glide. The sintered Sintec base can be effectively hot waxed for optimum glide when touring, making this a great ski for long tours on packed snow as well as ventures off trail.

 

  • Intended Use: For covering a lot of ground over mostly packed snow trails where downhill sections and untracked snow could always be around the corner
  • Tip/Waist/Tail Profile -- 88mm/68mm/78mm: narrowish to be glide better when touring but wide enough for decent floatation when trail breaking
  • 5/10 Nordic Rocker Camber: When ski flexes the tip lifts 5mm, moving the ski/snow contact point back 10mm for easier turn initiation
  • EZ Skin compatibility: For steeper climbs when Offtrack Crown starts to lose its grip, custom Fischer EZ-Skin climbing skin (50mm and 65mm sold separately) clicks into a slot in the front of the ski and adheres to and covers the Offtrack Crown pattern
  • OffTrack Crown positive waxless pattern provides excellent grip for kicking and gliding over flat/rolling terrain in all snow conditions
  • Factory stone ground Sintec base is sintered and can absorb hot wax to achieve optimum glide
  • Air channel wood core keeps skis lightweight for easier skinning and better glide for touring flat and rolling terrain
  • Full metal edges for maximum downhill control
  • Recommended: Fischer EZ-Skin climbing skins
