Looking for a versatile all-mountain ski that doesn’t tip the scales on the way up? Look no further than the Fischer Transalp 98 CTI. Sporting a generous amount of rocker in the tip, the Transalp 98 CTI handles itself nicely in powder while carbon stringers and a Paulownia wood core ensure the ski has a lively and fun personality. Should you be in an arcing mood, the medium turn radius is a blast on groomers or chalk, allowing you to push the speed until your amygdala throws up the white flag.

While the Transalp 98 CTI is fun in powder, it certainly is no slouch in firm conditions. Thanks to Titinal reinforcement underfoot, a sandwich sidewall construction, and a supportive tail, the Transalp 98 CTI is confidence inspiring when you need it the most. Great for when you mistime the freeze-thaw cycle in a steep couloir. Should you want to capitalize on the early October snow storms, the Transalp 98 CTI sports durable sintered bases, hopefully keeping the cost of your early-season antics low.

Whether you are tackling a record winter in the Wasatch, doing your first ski traverse, or looking to slim your quiver to one, the Fischer Transalp 98 CTI has you covered.

  • Sandwich Sidewall Construction provides good edge hold and power transmission without excess weight.
  • Shaped TI 0.5 technology provides stiffness underfoot and rock-solid binding retention.
  • Durable sintered bases hold up to early and late-season abuse.
  • Paulownia wood core with Carbon-Stringers keeps the weight low and performance high.
  • Integrated skin clip allows for secure, precut skin attachment.
  • Air-Tec milling reduces the weight of the core without sacrificing performance or durability.
  • Tour Rocker allows the ski to perform well in a variety of different conditions.

Questions & Reviews

Question from David
I'm looking for an allround touringski in the range from 95-100. I've looked at different models like the backland 95 or the faction agent 2.0. I don't need the lightest ski of all, but i want to have good downhill performance. How do these ski compare to each other and which one would you reccomend. I'm 184 and 70 kilos.
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi David, of these, the Fischer Transalp is the stiffest and most aggressive model. See Andrew's review below. The Backland 95 offers a more friendly experience, and would allow you to ski it with a little less intent. While I don't have first hand experience with the Faction Agent 2.0, they are billed as do-it-all skis and weigh a bit more than these other models. So I'd expect them to feel a little damper on the downhill. Please reach out to us at if you'd like to get further into the details!

Andrew Wagner (used product regularly)
These things are insane. Probably my favorite skis I’ve ever had. The power to weight ratio is ridiculous. As a retired ski racer I’ve done the full pendulum swing from heavy metal race gear to weight weenie skimo style stuff and decided I needed to swing back to the middle and landed on these. I’m rocking them with the ATK 15 EVO’s and ZGTP’s and I might never ski on another set up ever again. Obviously they’re super fun in pow, but what isn’t? The thing that blows my mind is that you can confidently make full-on, legit GS turns on ice with these things. If you’re looking for “playful” or “forgiving”, look elsewhere. But if you want power and precision in an absurdly light package, these skis are where it’s at!
