Fischer skis continues to prove its leadership position in innovative ski
technology with Rebecca Dussault's convincing win Monday in the Double
Pursuit at U.S. Nationals. Dussault, racing aboard the new wax-less RCS
Classic Zero ski, pulled away from the field in the opening classic leg to
win by a commanding 1.09 minute margin in the 15k race.
The Classic Zero ski is designed specifically for the tricky waxing
conditions around 0 Celsius (32 degrees F) or any time you have transitional
snow such as an open field into shade. The ski is manufactured with a split
base featuring a rubberized grip zone that allows for easy abrading. Along
with Fischer's 812 Camber Construction and Plus base, the Classic Zero
provides strong grip and exceptional glide without the icing problems of a
traditional wax-able ski. This ski should be popular in New England and the
Far West or anywhere waxing conditions are inconsistent and difficult.
The Classic Zero is one example of how Fischer's elite athletes enjoy the
benefits of innovative and cutting-edge designs that allow them to dominate
both domestic and World Cup racing. The wax-less Classic Zero will be
available at your local Fischer retailer in Fall of 2005.
