What Fischer says about the Ranger 96

“A true all-around talent for having a blast in every turn. The Ranger 96 offers maximum versatility with a blend of stability, agility, and power. Piste or powder, good or bad weather, any kind of snow: The Ranger 96 is ready for every sort of all-mountain adventure. Its optimally balanced construction lets it handle any type of terrain.

The integration of Flex Cut and Shaped Ti reinforcement provides impressive edge grip, excellent control, and top ride quality. Drifting is also easy for guaranteed fun on or off groomed slopes. The Ranger 96 is the perfect choice for skiers who want to enjoy every type of skiing.

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.”

  1. Very curious to hear how the changes to the line impact this ski. Both the 99ti and 94fr were quick but sometimes punishing (esp the 99ti). Early reviews of this 96 make it seem like they’ve lost some liveliness and maybe some of the top-end stability, but if it maintained some quickness and gaines some off-piste forgiveness that could be a good tradeoff for someone like me.

    • My estimate is sometime in the late Fall or early Winter. We still need to spend a little more time on this ski, which we are hoping to do starting in October potentially, which is when our nearest ski resorts begin to open.
