What Fischer says about the Ranger 108
“This powder specialist is a must-have for all adventurous freeriders. The Ranger 108 is a powerful yet playful freeride ski that still has precise edge control. With poplar/beech wood core construction, Shaped Ti, and a freeski rocker, this ski really shows off its capabilities making big turns in powder.
The full potential of the Ranger 108 is on display in deep, fine powder. It was developed for wide-ranging versatility on powder days with stability and maximum control on any descent. Its excellent performance comes from the calibrated Flex Cut and Shaped Ti reinforcement.
The Ranger ski line is the result of 30 months of intense collaboration between team athletes, shop employees, ski engineers, and ski addicts with the aim of getting more out of every day spent on snow, regardless of conditions or the terrain. The skis in the Ranger range are made in Europe and have been developed with close attention to the selection of raw materials and the use of recycled materials to minimise our environmental impact.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Ranger 108:
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-9
