2020 Fischer RC One 86 GT

The Gear of the Year, Best in Test Fischer RC One 86 GT for 2020.

The resort-specific daily-driver category is seeing a huge amount of innovation for the 2019-2020 season from a number of ski companies, and this brand-new ski from Fischer is at the top of the class. The Austrian-built RC One 86 GT integrates BAFATEX—a high-tensile, lightweight scrim used primarily in sails—in the tip and tail to reduce swing weight and increase edge-to-edge quickness. With two sheets of Titanal sandwiching a wood core to increase torsional rigidity and damp vibrations at high speeds, the RC One 86 GT earned the highest category scores for quickness, stability at speed, and balance of skills. Add in three different turn radii built into the noticeably unique sidecut, and the latest resort tool from Fischer goes down smoother than a pint of coffee stout on nitro. Testers were enamored with the ski’s capabilities in Taos, quipping that strong intermediate through expert level skiers will be enthralled by its obedient performance on lift-served terrain all season long. 

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard Snow

WEAKNESS: Flotation
