What Fischer says about the Ranger 108

“This powder specialist is a must-have for all adventurous freeriders. The Ranger 108 is a powerful yet playful freeride ski that still has precise edge control. With poplar/beech wood core construction, Shaped Ti, and a freeski rocker, this ski really shows off its capabilities making big turns in powder. 

The full potential of the Ranger 108 is on display in deep, fine powder. It was developed for wide-ranging versatility on powder days with stability and maximum control on any descent. Its excellent performance comes from the calibrated Flex Cut and Shaped Ti reinforcement.

The Ranger ski line is the result of 30 months of intense collaboration between team athletes, shop employees, ski engineers, and ski addicts with the aim of getting more out of every day spent on snow, regardless of conditions or the terrain. The skis in the Ranger range are made in Europe and have been developed with close attention to the selection of raw materials and the use of recycled materials to minimise our environmental impact.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Ranger 108:

In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5

  1. Hi there. Looking forward to some info regarding this ski. I bought the Fischer Ranger 107 ti last year, and this must be the model that replace it. I have skied it in the Alps in St. Anton. The Ranger 107 ti carves amazingly and seriously holds a line, considering how wide it is. It is like a race ski only wider. I is not easy and forgiving when the off-piste has a crush, as it will primarily want to carve on hard surface. I am looking forward the this new ski :-)

    • This appears to be nothing like the Fischer 107Ti, which is one of my favorite skis in the class (at 189 cm), both on- and off-piste. The best way I can describe it is that it was obviously some ex-racer’s idea of an “all-mountain charger”. It’s all about powerful, precise, directional skiing. I’m a fairly big ex-racer (the sort of person who considers a 140 boot to be “medium flex”), and I get along with it very very well.

      The 108 appears to have more taper, more and slightly deeper rocker, and a significantly softer shovel and forebody (though still a pretty stiff if perhaps slightly less flat tail). Probably not my cup of tea, but I imagine there will be people who find it a lot easier to handle provided they can stay off of those tails.

  2. Looks VERY interesting to me. Numbers indicate a possibly “carvy” powder ski that isn’t overly stiff.

    I had the OG Ranger 115 ti pow skis, and they were just too darn stiff for me as a pow board.

    Fake Question: Does Fischer have the ability to make a ski that does NOT carve well?!

  3. I was hoping this would potentially be a chargier/more stable at speed Enforcer 110 Free, but it looks like it’ll be the opposite :(

  4. I’d be really interested as to an opinion of the relative merits of the new 2023 Ranger 108 vs 2023 QST 106 vs 2023 QST Blank… I’m considering updating my pow skis pre-Japan 23 mission. I’ve had the 2017/2018 (? the fluoro orange ones) QST 106’s mounted with binding freedom inserts for both Fritschi Tecton 12s / marker Jester bindings as my 50/50 skis and have loved that ski to death! Whatever I replace the 106s with needs to be light enough to manage full day tours, but still burly enough to rail through chop at decent speed inbounds…. and I like that feeling of getting pulled into a turn when laying them over. I am a more directional skier who likes to load the shovels with a fairly forward, attacking stance, but still likes to spin 3s / 5s when opportunities arise. Too old and stiff for any park skiing nonsense these days! Can’t wait for the deep dives on the new Ranger series – I’ve been fairly brand loyal to Salomon in recent times but the Ranger series have me interested!
