Men’s Frontside Ski Review of the 2021 Fischer RC One GT86
Last year’s cover ski is still the crème de la crème of the more pure carving-oriented entries in this category, but that doesn’t mean it should be written off as a one-trick pony. Testers enthusiastically took the RC1 86GT all over, lighting up the world-famous bumps and devouring the steep, chalky terrain of Taos Ski Valley. Still, it was nearly unanimous that this Fischer absolutely owns the groomers, and it has absolutely no speed limit.
STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity
WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Playfulness

Women’s Frontside Ski Review of the 2021 Fischer RC One GT86
The unisex RC1 86GT won SKI Test gold in the men’s Frontside category last year and was entered into the women’s test this year because Fischer doesn’t make gender-specific skis. Turns out, our ladies loved it too, thanks to its easy swing weight and triple turn radius, which allows the ski to energetically bound from edge to edge. Testers ranked it No. 1 in Quickness and agreed it could tackle anything the resort threw at it if steered by a firm hand.
STRENGTHS: Quickness, Stability at Speed
WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Versatility
