Fischer, a classic Austrian brand with a well deserved reputation for high performance, especially in racing and carving skis, is moving into the new millennium with rapidly expanding worldwide sales. In 1999-2000, Fischer's Alpine ski sales were up 22 percent over the previous year; for 2001-2002 the company is forecasting an equal or greater increase worldwide. In the American market, where Fischer had been traditionally weak, Fischer Skis U.S., headed by industry veteran Dave Auer, posted a 15 percent rise in sales.

When it comes to product, Fischer has a complete line, with skis to fit every skiing style, snow condition, age group, and skier preference. This year there are new models in every category, and one all-new category, Sceneo, which features lightweight twin-tips for effortless recreational all-mountain skiing. The company separates its product line to six key adult groups: Speed, Alltrax, Sceneo, Sport, Ladies, and Specialty, each group with a full complement of models in different price ranges and shapes.

Speed Series
Racing has always been an important part of the Fischer mix. (The company added American skier Bode Miller to its international stable of athletes this year.) There are two new World Cup-level skis (details were sketchy at press time), and a new slalom carver called the Race SC with 3D shape, Booster plate, Power Vacuum and AirCarbon Ti construction.
New: Worldcup GS (giant slalom), Worldcup SC (slalom), Race SC (slalom carver).
Modified: Race Aircarbon Ti, Pro.

Alltrax Series
This is Fischer's freeride series, built wide and built tough to explore the whole hill and then some. The skis feature AirCarbon and Power Vacuum construction for light weight and durability in the backcountry. New to this group is the Alltrax Big Stix 106 with a huge 106-mm waist and turned-up tail for Alaskan huckfests.
New: Alltrax Big Stix 106.
Modified: Alltrax Big Stex 84, Alltrax 74, Alltrax Freeride 68.
Unchanged:Alltrax Cruiser 65.

Sceneo
This new series of twin-tip skis has all the bells and whistles in the Fischer arsenal: allround 3D top shape, AirCarbon and Power Vacuum construction. They are wide (70 mm) to float in powder, with a deep ("intelligent") sidecut for maneuverability. Fischer says they do it all: carving, freeriding, tricks, racing, or touring.
New: Sceneo III Air (with Booster), Sceneo III Air, Sceneo II Air.

Sport
This is Fischer's pricepoint group.
Modified: VC 200, VC 100.

Ladies Series
Fischer's ladies series has been expanded this year with female-specific versions of the Sceneo II and Sceneo III.
New: Sceneo III LX, Sceneo II LX.

Specialty Series

Unchanged: Airstyle (pipe and park ski), Lunar (mogul ski), Web (skiboard).
