Fischer’s new strategy of having no differences between men’s- and women’s-specific skis is most prevalent in the Ranger 102 FR: Every length up to 191cm is available in blue or pink. While the women loved this ski (Best in Test for Women’s All-Mountain Wide), the men at SKI Test found the longest length—191cm—to be more than a little burly. But, with a perfect mix of stability and ease of use, the 184cm length proved to be the belle of the ball.

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Playfulness
