Its innovative Carbon Tex laminate combines the rigidity of two Fischer technologies borrowed from competition models in a single ski: Diagotex and Carbon Stringers. While maintaining the same weight, these elements make the Transalp 90 ski more resistant and drastically reduce vibrations, so as to more easily tackle the most demanding and high speed descents.
Fischer has managed to maintain a weight of 1,230 grams thanks to the use of a lightweight and high quality Paulownia wood core, but also to the Aeroshape design and the use of a special Air Tec milling, to offer maximum efficiency and less waste. energetic in the phases of ascent, without compromises in descent.
