The arms race in the race category is heating up, and once again Fischer has found a way to solidify their position as a top contender with the new Transalp RC Carbon ski. Still sporting a selectively milled paulownia wood core, Fischer was able to reduce the core weight over previous race models and was even nice enough to throw in a Titanal plate in the mounting area for extra durability and power transfer. The tour rocker helps keep you on top while lending itself to a hook free and intuitive turn initiation. Camber underfoot and slightly tapered tails help guide the Transalp RC with razor like precision. The Carbon Tex weave keeps the ride smooth and damp on harder snow conditions you inevitably will find out on the racecourse. If you're the type that likes to redline it on your last climb, or when climbing the steps of the podium, the Transalp RC Carbon ski will be with you every step and stride of the way.
- Aeroshape topsheet helps to shed snow because snow on the topsheet is just the worst.

- AirTec core made of milled paulownia is lighter than previous core constructions.

- World Cup pedigree from Fischer lineage.
