Fischer Announces 2025 Nightstick Freeski Collection

Fischer has officially announced their 24/25 Nightstick collection, which includes four brand-new freestyle skis — Blister discusses the details.
2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick Team, 90, 97, & 104

Last season, several Fischer athletes were spotted riding skis that looked like Fischer’s Ranger series — but they weren’t Rangers. These skis had twinned tails, were mounted closer to center, and had more symmetrical-looking shapes. I.e., it looked like Fischer had a new freestyle ski in the works.

Sure enough, Fischer eventually rolled out a (very limited) release of the new Nightstick 97. The name is a nod to Fischer’s classic competition park ski, the original Nightstick.

Now, Fischer has revealed that the Nightstick 97 was just the start — for the 2024-2025 season, they’ll be offering a whole Nightstick collection of skis. The new Nightstick 90, Nightstick 97, Nightstick 104, and Nightstick Team are all designed with freestyle skiing in mind, with each model being targeted at slightly different conditions and terrain.

We’ve started spending time on the new Nightstick 97 and Nightstick 104, and BLISTER+ members can check out our Flash Review of the Nightstick 97 for our initial on-snow impressions. We’ll also be posting First Looks in the future with our measured specs, flex pattern numbers, and rocker profile pictures for both skis. In the meantime, let’s go over some of the details of the new Nightstick collection.

Fischer has officially announced their 24/25 Nightstick collection, which includes four brand-new freestyle skis — Blister discusses the details.
2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick 90

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick 90
Available Lengths: 159, 168, 177, 184 cm
Stated Dimensions (184 cm): 119-91-117 mm
Stated Sidecut Radius (184 cm): 19 m
Stated Weight per Ski (length not specified): 1950 g

As you might expect, the Nightstick 90 is the most firm-snow-oriented of the group, and it’s also the most similar option to the original 84mm-wide Nightstick (though still quite different, at least on paper). With stated dimensions of 117-90-115 mm for the 177 cm length, the Nightstick 90 is the most symmetrical of the new models, and it will likely be the one we most often see under the feet of Fischer’s professional slopestyle and big air athletes.

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick 97
Available Lengths: 163, 170, 177, 184 cm
Stated Dimensions (184 cm): 132-97-123 mm
Stated Sidecut Radius (184 cm): 18 m
Stated Weight per Ski (184 cm): 1950 g

Filling the middle is the first of the new Nightsticks to break cover last year, the Nightstick 97. As you might expect from a ski around this width, the Nightstick 97 is supposed to handle a bit of everything. Fischer states, “the most versatile ski in the Nightstick family is the perfect companion for a creative day of skiing in the side and backcountry, in the park and on the piste.”

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick 104

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick 104
Available Lengths: 172, 180, 188 cm
Stated Dimensions (188 cm): 141-104-130 mm
Stated Sidecut Radius (188 cm): 20 m
Stated Weight per Ski (188 cm): 2100 g

On the widest end, the Nightstick 104 is positioned as an all-mountain freestyle ski that is ideal for soft snow but still versatile enough to be fun in the park and on groomers. Here’s how Fischer puts it: “the Nightstick 104 is the perfect freestyle ski for playful backcountry action and powder days, without losing its versatility in the park and on the piste.”

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick Team

2024-2025 Fischer Nightstick Team
Available Lengths: 135, 145, 155 cm
Stated Dimensions (145 cm): 112-80-103 mm
Stated Sidecut Radius (145 cm): 12 m
Stated Weight per Ski (145 cm): 1400 g

Lastly, the Nightstick Team is an 80mm-wide junior-oriented model for kids who want a playful ski; it’s available in 135, 145, and 155 cm lengths.

Aside from the Nightstick Team, which features a less complex, more value-oriented construction, all the new Nightstick skis use similar materials and construction techniques. They feature poplar wood cores, full sandwich sidewalls, fiberglass laminates, sintered bases, a partial titanal layer, and Fischer’s signature “Air Tec” construction, which uses “special milling patterns” to reportedly reduce the wood core’s weight by 25% “without losing flex or torsional stability.”

Looking at the Nightstick 97 we have in for long-term testing, you can see a metal layer spanning edge to edge around the binding area of the ski, but interestingly, that metal layer is placed near the bottom of its core, just above the ski’s edges (more commonly, we see metal layers placed up top, often between the wood core and top sheet). The Nightsticks’ partial metal reinforcement layer is reportedly meant to both increase edge hold underfoot and improve the durability of the skis’ edges.

Fischer also points out that “all Nightstick models are based on a generative AI design, meaning that every single ski is unique and never exists a second time.” And to that, I say … “cool.” Despite those unique graphics, the Nightsticks all share a strong family resemblance from a shaping perspective. They feature pretty blocky, moderately tapered tips a la Fischer’s Ranger series of freeride skis, but the Nightsticks’ tails taper notably more than the directional Ranger skis.

At least for the Nightstick 97 and Nightstick 104 we have in for testing, the skis feature pretty symmetrical rocker profiles, with fairly deep rocker lines for their respective widths. While we haven’t yet seen a pair in person, the narrower Nightstick 90 appears to feature notably less rocker / more camber, as you’d expect.

Again, keep an eye out for our First Looks of the new Nightstick skis, and right now, BLISTER+ members can read our Flash Review of the Nightstick 97 for our initial on-snow impressions. Then, stay tuned for Full Reviews & Deep Dive comparisons once we’ve spent more time on the new skis.
