Fischer builds two radii into the Progressor's sidecut: a tight 13 meters in the tip, for quick initiation, and a mellower 17 from mid-forebody to tail, so it won't jet back across the fall line too abruptly. A two-layer binding interface smooths the ride. The top half rests on ball bearings, allowing the bottom half to flex. Meanwhile, near-vertical sidewalls and metal laminates give it grip and supple dampness. "Serves up a nice range of turn shapes," said McGrath.
