For veteran manufacturers like Fischer, it’s becoming pretty easy to build a race ski that’s below the minimum weight allowed by the ISMF. Since weights cannot get any lower, durability and downhill performance are in focus. The AlpAttack Carbon is an exciting new race ski from the Austrians. At first glance it looks a lot like the previous AlpAttack, but rest assured it’s not the same ski. The tip has been reshaped to improve carving and planning ability. Updated geometry promotes hook-free turning and the skis stay quiet and stable under foot. A bit more camber was added to give the ski a wild amount of energy without being overbearing. The tapered tail is raised just enough to release easily from turns but not enough to compromise the scalpel-like carving for which the AlpAttack is known. Not only is the AlpAttack Carbon the fastest way to the top, it’s now one of the fastest down.

  • AirTec core is milled Paulownia that is 25% lighter without sacrificing torsional stability or flex.
  • Re-shaped tip offers enough rocker to make it one of the better floating race skis on the market.
  • Aeroshape topsheet sheds snow, ensuring that your skis start and end a climb at the same weight.
  • Tapered tail releases from turns and makes booter-transitions smooth as butter.
  • Longitudinal carbon stringers promote rebound, pop, and extra strength.
  • Titanal plates in the binding area hold fast.

Camber is huge on this ski. It made mounting the heels a bit challenging as when it is fully weighted the heel is a few mm closer to the boot than when unweighted. Also the camber made getting good grip with skins a little challenging, though this will likely be mitigated with different skinning technique.
The titanal plates under the bindings are very thick and strong, such that mounting bindings takes awhile, but should have no pull out issues.
