Reviewer Steef

"For me skiing on piste is all about testing the limits of speed and grip of the skis, both slalom and giant slalom. Comfort and flex are less important to me than stability. Skiing is supposed to take a lot of energy out of you."

To all my reviews

 

Comfortable speed cruiser


Stable and comfortable skis for the average day on the piste. Not excelling in a special manner, just doing there speed carving thing with ease. If you are looking for a good turning and comfortable ski with neutral handling, this is your ski. For the thrill seekers the Progressor 800 might get a little bit boring after a while. High speed cruising, that’s what this Fischer ski is made for. Stable enough and also very comfortable: bumpy pistes don’t exist with these skis at your feet, fabulous. Long carving turns are easy and you feel like sitting on a train.

Slalom and/or Giant Slalom

The skis have lots of grip. In shorter turns however, they feel a bit heavy, and ask some effort to go from side to side. Fischer claims this ski has a dual radius system for both Slalom and Giant Slalom use. I think it only works well for Giant Slalom. If you seek a more agile ski for Slalom, go for a real Slalom type of ski.

Fischer about the Progressor 800 powerrail

"Perfect companion on all pistes. For experts who love speed but also enjoy more relaxed skiing at times.", says Fischer. Well, in the case of an expert who does not love thrills, it might be true. The ski has certain qualities and I think it is for relaxed intermediate skiërs who stay on the piste.

I couldn't agree more! I have the Progressor F18 2016-2017, which is exactly the same as the Progressor 800 2016-17. Especially the part about the bad visibility is exactly what I experienced. I have never skied so fast in those conditions. It all has to do with the confidence they give. And even beter, I do not get tired on them. Grip is excellent, they turn easy and they will surprise you in a bad way. Best ski I have ever owned.
