Product Test – 2019 Fischer Carbonlite Skate Roller Skis

With guest contributor Michael Mandli

The key ingredient to specific cross country ski training, the roller ski, comes in many different brands with wheels designed for specific surfaces and techniques.  The 2019 Fischer Carbonlite Skate Roller Ski, which I have trained on for the past month, checks all the boxes we look for in a great skate roller ski.

Fischer 2018-2019 Winter Line-Up at New Moon

Fischer Sports is the global leader in Nordic skiing. Founded in 1924 in Austria, Fischer’s  dedication to innovation has created legions of loyal winter athletes who share Fischer’s passion for performance.

 

For winter 2018-2019, New Moon is continuing with several Fischer favorites and adding a few exciting additions to the line.

Fischer equipment has been setting the standards on the track for years and their Twin Skins have been no exception. As the name suggests, the Twin Skins are all about the 2 separate strips that are arranged in offset positions underfoot on the ski. They are arranged with variable depth integration for smooth and balanced gliding. The 100% mohair skins ensure you can rely on the kick – especially in hard or icy conditions, and the skin’s Teflon coating minimizes moisture absorption and subsequent icing.

New Moon has had great success with the Twin Skins. They are the ultimate problem- solver ski. Reliable in a wide range of conditions, easy-to-use since you don’t have to formulate a wax program, and much better glide than previous scaled and hairy versions. Our customers loved the Twin Ski Race and Twin Skin Superlite last year-both easy-to-kick skis, the Race a full-on racing ski and the Superlite, a hybrid between and race and touring ski. Last year we also offered the the Twin Ski Carbon, which is lighter and harder to kick, but fully rewards the more experienced skier with a great experience. This year, New Moon is adding the Twin Skin Speedmax to its Twin Skin line. Classic aficionados can now enjoy top tier features and construction in a skin ski. Like the Twin Skin Carbon, the Twin Skin Speedmax uses a shorter skin pattern for grip to emphasize glide. If you want the techiest skin ski, the Speedmax is it.

Another favorite from last year is Fischer’s Carbonlite Skate Boot-a featherweight racing boot with World Cup experience. With a multitude of outstanding features like Turnamic compatibility, carbon cuff and heel counter, extended fit system, ratchet lock buckle, Triple F membrane, and thermo insole, this boot sets any skier up for success and outstanding achievements on the ski trail.

 

New Moon’s Fischer pole selection includes the standard and stiff version of the Speedmax. These poles have everything the racer’s heart desires: it is lighter than light, has optimized stiffness, perfect swing weight, and an absolutely minimal handstrap. Although both poles are very high on the stiffness spectrum, the more robust Speedmax stiff is a better fit for those bigger skiers or sprint specialists.

All the above put together make a great winter set-up for champions in the making, but what about when the snow isn’t falling yet?

We are also proud to offer Fischer roller skis this year. Fischer is the only ski manufacturer to use its years of experience in ski production to provide perfect training equipment in summer, too. Their objective is to offer a top-of-the-line, ski-like feel, and by using the proven materials from their Carbonlite ski line, Fischer is able to achieve this goal.

  

We have 3 roller skis available this year. The RC5 skate is an entry level roller ski perfect for younger skiers. The wider, 80mm wheels provide a low center of gravity for confident handling. A shortened wheelbase allows agility and easier turning, and the durable aluminum frame is torsionally stiff for efficient skiing. The RC7 Skate is the ideal choice for the ambitious recreational skier.

The Carbonlite Skate features Fischer’s newly developed Air Core Composite frame which absorbs vibration for smooth performance while the Razor Shape Base guarantees sufficient ground clearance even with an extreme kick angle. Perfect for racing and high level training.

To complete the package, enjoy improved overall fit and performance with the RCS Roller Skate Boot. Lighter and cooler than the ski boot, the RCS completes the package.

 

 

If you haven’t experienced Fischer quality, this is the year. New Moon is an official Nordic Racing and Demo Center. We have several demo days on the trail throughout the winter or visit the shop and get set up for your own outing.

New Moon On The Air

Here at New Moon, we’d like to think that everyone knows us or at least knows where to come for ski and bike information.

But we often like to get the word out in other venues to people who may not be as familiar with the Moon. Currently, we have a column in the Visitor Magazine, a local publication geared towards, you guessed it, tourists, about biking in the northwoods. Continue reading New Moon On The Air
