For a perfect match to Fischer’s new line of impressive backcountry skis, use the also-new line of skins. The skins are 65% mohair and 35% nylon, hitting that sweet spot in terms of grip vs. glide. Fischer uses a modified version of the K2 clip system to attach pre-trimmed skins to the base of their skis. There are stepped holes in the tips of models such as the Transalp 88, making it simple to affix the skins and allowing for weight savings by using a tapered “V” shape. The simplest way to the top with Fischer skis.
