Fischer gave their TransAlp series a much needed makeover. New dimensions and more carbon give these skis a nice feel in the backcountry. The added Carbon Tex weave is the biggest improvement, which helps dampen chatter commonly experienced with lightweight skis without adding weight. Slight modifications to profile both in rocker and sidecut will improve skinning and turning. Pair with the Tour Speed Turn or Tour Speed Lite bindings to minimize the weight and give the best performance.
