Fischer S-Bound 98 Skis -

Fischer's S-Bound 98 skis are cross-country skis for deep snow and aggressive terrain, ready to tackle challenges like a long-distance ski through National Forest lands on Vermont's Catamount Trail or a winter trip up to Carter Notch Hut in New Hampshire. The Offtrack Crown waxless base is designed for grip on unprepared snow surfaces, while the full-length metal edge ensures solid security on sketchy descents.


Features:

Fabric:

  • Nordic Rocker construction provides easier turning on a weighted ski by moving the contact point further back
  • Lightweight and durable sandwich cap construction

Sizing:

  • Full-length steel edge for solid turns on all surfaces

Weather and Wind:

  • Universal stone grinding for perfect gliding properties in all snow conditions
  • Steel edges cut into the snow handling better in crusty conditions

Traction and Grip:

  • Fischer cuts the Crown pattern, (instead of presses), into the durable sintered base to provide long lasting grip and consistent glide over the life of the ski

Features:

  • This Ski is suitable for NNN BC bindings and similar sturdy NNN BC boots
  • Stone-ground pattern on base for great gliding properties
  • Offtrack Crown system developed by Fischer for climbing on untouched terrain
  • Nordic rocker moves the tip up 5mm and the contact point back 10 cm when weighted
  • Air channel core saves weight compared to pure wood cores and is more resistant to breaking
  • Ski tail protector
  • Air channels integrated into the wood and fiberglass core save weight and allow better pressure distribution

My go to ski

So I got my Fischer S-Bound 98 189s before the snow fell 2011. I had at that time NNN-BC Magnum bindings on them and skied most of the winter in a pair of Fischer BCX6 boots. Grate setup for rolling terrain with the occasional good downhill run. For this year I switched my setup for more downhill control. I've gone to the the Voile 3-pin 75mm Cable telemark bindings and the Fischer BCX875 boots. The Fischer S-Bound 98s are grate in the backcountry giving plenty of flotation in powder and good edge control on sun crust. I went to the next size up for my weight I ski with a bakepack and plenty of stoff. In the Cascades it is hard to find more then three feet of flat level ground. I've used them at a Nordic center and at a downhill ski resort with good results at both.
