Intermediate+ level all-mountain
skier Gijs' rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"Versatility is what counts most in an all-mountain ski, a good performance in all kinds of snow. But since this category holds just about anything from 80 mm piste-oriented carving machines to 110 mm powder boards, the devil is in the details."
My favourite all-mountain skis:
1. Fischer Motive 86 Ti
2. Völkl Kendo
3. Dynastar Powertrack 89
To all my reviews
With the Pro MTN 80 Ti (tested length 180 cm) Fischer has updated their very popular and easy to ski Motive all-mountain series. The Motive 80 was a gentle, but stable ski that did suit almost any intermediate to advanced+ skier, both on and off-piste. Its successor, the new Pro Mtn 80 Ti, comes in two version: with and without TI. This review is on the latter. And the addition of metal really gives a bit more body, bite and energy to this ski. It still is not a real charger or the best for heavy, aggressive skiers. But the Fischer Pro MTN 80 Ti does ski very well on groomers and in the deep stuff.
Fischer Pro MTN 80 Ti holds an edge quite well, even in icy conditions. Due to the slightly smaller radius, it turns so easy, both in carved and slipped turns. But in powder, Fischer Pro MTN 80 Ti has remarkable float for a ski this narrow. And that’s what makes it a true all-round ski for most 90-10 or even 80-20 on/off-piste skiers. Only the real heavy weights or race speed loving chargers would want a bit more power then the Fischer Pro MTN 80 Ti has. But for everyone else, this all-mountain ski is gentle enough in rough conditions and at the same time powerful enough to open up the throttle.
Fischer about the Pro MTN 80 Ti
"One of the most dependable and versatile skis in Fischer's new Pro Mountain collection! With an 80 mm waist and Air Tec Ti, Wood Core construction, it falls right in the wheelhouse for intermediate to advanced level skiers all over the globe.", says Fischer. I think they're right.
