New graphics, same outstanding backcountry performance. The Transalp 90 is such a great ski for the east coast and steep terrain. Just read our description from last year:
For anyone on the East Coast, the Transalp Carbon 90 is the perfect tool for almost every condition, be it boot-top powder deep in the forest or refrozen coral-reef ice above treeline. Fischer designed their latest all-rounder to handle both ends of the conditions spectrum and then some, with the same powerful feel of their on-piste skis that has won them a spot in skiers' hearts worldwide now in a touring-specific package. More of a go-kart than a bulldozer on the descents, the paulownia wood core of the Transalp allows it to hold an edge where other skis would skitter and shake, and a shorter turning radius makes quick work of narrow chutes. Coming in right around the 1300g mark, this is one of the lightest skis out there that we can confidently say is able to handle just about everything the snowy hills of the Northeast have to offer. Whether you're just entering the touring game and want the best chance for getting first tracks; or you're a seasoned, hard-charging skier who wants to match your skills with a solid pair of skis; the Transalp Carbon 90 was built to work perfectly under your feet this winter.
