Fischer Hybrid 8.0

BEST FOR GROOMED TERRAIN

Engage a switch near the tip of the 8.0 and the front of the ski bends upward, creating rocker. Release it and the ski returns to a traditional camber construction. Our advice: Keep the switch engaged. In camber mode, the skis are sluggish. In rocker mode, turn initiation is easy, and they float through afternoon crud and hold an arc well on groomers.
