Our Annual Buyer’s Guide is still cooking, but we’re giving you a quick glance under the hood at some next year’s most exciting new skis. The Fischer Skis 2022 lineup is stacked with their premiere Ranger series, developed by legends like Mike Hattrup. The collection below is every ski that Fischer submitted to our 2021 Ski Test. With metal and carbon layups and directional and twinned shapes, there’s a Ranger out there for every kind of skier—but especially ones who like to ski fast.
Ranger 102 FR and Ranger 102 FR WS
Even if you own several pairs of skis, the Ranger 102 FR’s blend of float, stability, and playfulness makes it hard to choose anything else. The moderate twin-tip and smooth rocker and taper profile release easily and slash at a moment’s notice. The carbon fiber shovel provides enough float to crush nipple deep powder laps in Japan, while maintaining the stability and confidence to charge demanding terrain at speed.
Ranger 115 FR
Designed and engineered with the feedback from our top freeride athletes, it is built for deep, hard charging days without sacrificing the playfulness needed to slash and butter every side hit. The carbon shovel reduces swingweight for hand drags and lofty backflips. So whether you’re lining up at the top of a Freeride World Tour venue or your favorite local mini-golf zone, the 115 FR is ready.
Ranger 94 FR and Ranger 94 FR WS
The Ranger 94 FR is ideal for anyone who doesn’t want to be limited to one small slice of the mountain. The solid sandwich construction and carbon shovel feel right at home sneaking into steep trees and blasting out the bottom of chutes. Lay down some soul turns on the groomers with style and when spring hits, the 94mm waist is perfect for blasting through slushy ruts in the park or hiking to harvest creamy corn.
Ranger 99 Ti
The Ranger 99 Ti boasts two sheets of Titanal and is ideal for technical skiers that want smooth, damp, precision, and who control speed through turn shape. The carbon shovel keeps chatter to a minimum and reduces swingweight. Its specialized shape and Freeski Rocker provide smooth stability, easy turn initiation, and excellent edge grip anywhere on the mountain.
