Fischer Pro Mtn 86 ti review 2017
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The Pro Mtn ti (for "Pro Mountain") was pre-tested in January 2016, and was given the go-ahead to join the PROSKILAB™ review. The model sent in for the review appeared to have a preparation problem however, which affected its performance.
The reviewers effectively found its grip was uneven and varied depending on the pressure, making the ski difficult to manage, especially at high speeds, with far stronger grip at the front of the ski. When riders pushed on the tongue, the ski tended to go into overdrive. With pressure to the rear, the grip weakened and the ski began to swing.
However, we noted that the ski's sharply carved shape is designed for a mainly piste-oriented programme.
We therefore keep an open mind and would like to review the model again next year.
- A very nice ski in short-radius turns
- Good grip
- Good kick
- Some reviewers were bothered by the uneven grip along the edge, probably due to a problem of preparation or finish in the model we were given to review.
