Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal?

Read up on Fischer’s Ranger 108 Ti Skis 2017-2018, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
“Go, go Power Rangers,” should undoubtedly be this ski’s theme song because there’s no word that better describes it than powerful. A sturdy yet responsive beech- poplar wood core, sandwich sidewall construction, titanium inserts and carbon fiber in the tips work in beautiful harmony to provide incredible stability and edge hold. But the Ranger’s other attractive quality is its lightweight nature. While the aforementioned carbon sheds bulk, Fischer also mills the wood core in an offset pattern, for a weight reduction while maintaining its stiff flex pattern. “Power ski for power hour,” described one tester. “Straight line through crud, send a floaty air, land confidently and keep ripping.”
