Fischer Carbonlite S-Track

FasterSkierOctober 12, 20092

Fischer’s new Carbonlite Skating S-Track ski is a new addition to the Carbonlite skating line this year.  With Carbonlite construction and RCS camber characteristics, the S-Track has the best qualities from both of Fischer’s racing skate lines.  All 3 Fischer Carbonlite Skating skis, The Hole Ski, the Carbonlite Skating and the Carbonlite Skating S-Track will be available for demo beginning in November at the West Yellowstone Fall Camp.  Come ski each pair and feel the differences for yourself.

    It looks like they have finally addressed a design flaw that has been a problem with the RCS since day 1…the 41mm tip. This is a terrific feature in a classical ski, and is kinda nifty on skate skis since it reduces plowing when they are turned on their edges. However, it tends to make the RCS a really tippy, scary ride on hardpack and/or icy surfaces. I have avoided this problem over the years by running RCSs really ‘flat’ (almost completely closed with full body weight on one ski), which puts more ski on the skiing surface, thereby providing better balance and stability to the ski. It sounds like they have effectively done the same thing with a new/different mold. Bravo, Fischer! I’ll buy a pair of these before I buy a pair of ‘hole’y skis anyday!

    Should I consider these the skis for non-hardpack conditions, where the original Carbonlites are aimed at perfect race conditions?

    I tried the original Carbonlites once (rentals, but picked from large fleet), on soft and mushy snow, and they were, well, devine.

    Skis are cool, but these are just so techy feeling. Also off the snow. I by no means deserve super skis, but I can tell the difference, so, I want.
    Looking forward to your expert comments.
