Fischers still frighten some people—too strong, too edgy, too Austrian—but the family-owned brand will continue opening minds with skis like this. Some testers rule out the Ranger 115 for lighter and less-aggressive skiers, but others find it to be shockingly well behaved and easygoing. All agree that it will egg you on to higher speeds with its strong, confident demeanor. “Strong but dialed and fun,” said Elling. “Just hammers down the middle of the fairway, smooth and stable.”

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Flotation, Crud Performance
