Fischer RC4 Progressor (2008)
Fat skis get all the attention, but once in a while we’re reminded of the joys of a narrow one. The Progressor delivers thrilling race-ready performance with a firmness and solidity underfoot that provides a marvelous foundation on which to build bombproof high-speed arcs. Transitions are smooth and dynamic. The 16-meter radius thrives in medium and long arcs. "So strong, yet so relaxed," said Morgan.
Full-on race-style attack in mid- to long-radius turns.
Tentative technique or skidded turns. Requires commitment.
