About Fischer Skis
Founded in 1924, Fischer Skis began with a lowly Cartwright, Josef Fischer,Sr.,
in Salzburg Austria. The occasional skis Josef made quickly expanded by 1934 as
the Fischer company expanded to ski manufacturing. After World War II, Josef Fischer,
Jr. devoted his resources to the reconstruction of a devastated economy and in
doing so, created the first ski press to revolutionize production that was done
entirely by hand at the time. By 1967, Fischer Skis had produced over 330,000
pairs of skis while focusing its efforts today in the continuous refinement and
innovation of Nordic and Alpine Skis, even supplying equipment to the World Cup.
In offering everything from alpine skis, bindings and boots to cross country skiing
equipment, poles and even hokey products, Fischer Skis has since partnered with
Rottefella, a Nordic Bindings producer that has shifted the Fischer boot to offer
a cross compatible binding system.
In producing high-quality skiing equipment, Fischer skis has continuously surpassed
itself with innovative tech like the Women BMP binding mounting point that makes
for energy-saving turns on the skis. Additionally, Fischer Skis' boots boast
the Vacuum Fit technology constructed with Fischer's Vacu-Plast material that
adapts to the anatomical requirements of its wearer while also providing for
increased vibration dampening as well as an adjustable forward lean. As one
of the ISPO Award-winning boots, the Vacuum Fit tech showcases a substantial
and convincing leap forward for enhancing boot. performance It should be worth
mentioning too, we haven't even gotten to the actual skis yet.
Enter, the Fischer S-Bound 98 Escort Skis. Constructed with a Fiberglass and
wood core, the Fischer S-Bound 98 Escort skis boast a BCX Magnum binding set
on a Sintec base that has a stone grinding finish for an effortless romp over
the fluffy clouds of glorious, powdery packs of snow. Moreover, with the Fischer
S-Bound 112 Skis sporting tech enhancements like the Air Channel core that saves
on weight, giving you that extra effortless pop — you will also have the
added luxury of Fischer's new Offtrack Crown climbing system developed exclusively
for Fischer products.
With Fischer Skis putting sponsored athletes on the podium 340 times over the
2012/2013 season, 117 of the 162 World Cup winners sported the Fischer Skis
equipment. To say that Fischer Skis mean business might be a bit too modest,
but with a solid sustainability and environmental protection leader - Fischer
Skis has earned the Energy Globe Award by curbing enough heavy heating oil and
C02 emissions that equates to providing nearly 5,000 homes with electricity
for over five years. More still, maintains the identity of a "Eco-logical"
company with 100% of the skis constructed with 100% renewable energy. Plus,
when the time comes for new skis, Fischer products are actively recycled to
produce energy and heat for Austrian homes. The circle of life, as it should
be - for the riders of tomorrow!
