Technical info:
The Ranger series differs from the Big Stix by its aluminum reinforced aluminum sandwich construction. According to Fischer, a 0.8 millimeter thick aluminum plate runs through the ski´s entire length. It has an average flex curve with a slightly softer tip. The turning radius is long compared to most other skis, and it is also here shorter in the back ski. Long setback characterizes the construction. The weight is medium, despite the air ducts in the core.

On snow:
The solid giant slalom feel of the Fischer Ranger is similar to typical allround skis, at the same time as it is wide enough to function well in powder. The long turning radius makes it suitable for the long turns, but it also delivers in shorter turns. This is a versatile and easy to maneuver freeride ski, which functions well in the groomed slopes as well as in powder.
