Fischer’s Koa collection of women’s specific skis is a broad series comprising six models ranging in width from 110 down to 73. All models are rockered (narrower models in the tip only; wider ones in the tip and tail). All (except the value-priced, foam-core Koa 73) are wood-core, laminate constructions with full-length/height sidewalls. Wood is used for durability and responsiveness; full sidewalls for optimized edge grip and solidity underfoot. (The sidewalls are angled-less edgy than vertical sidewalls and more resistant to damage caused by the opposite ski’s edge.) Fischer’s women’s skis get lighter-weight all-poplar wood cores, which are lighter and softer flexing.
