For many years this was the choice of racers around the world for easy kick and dependable, fast glide. The 812 camber keeps the kick-wax off the snow when gliding, but comes down quickly when weighted. They are light, weighing in at 1090 grams for 197cm ski. The camber is identical to the even lighter Carbonlite ski. Fischer uses different base material additives depending on the snow type the ski is intended for. The RCS Classic Plus base skis have the World Cup Plus base with a high amount of carbon in the material and the aggressive grind for warmer, high moisture snow crystals. This deals with the suction created between the base and the snow and creates a base which enhances glide. Fischer’s improved ultrafast DTG WC grinding structure, along with the pre-waxed bases makes these race boards fast right out of the box. The Fischer factory grinds are so well respected that some World Cup skiers often use the skis without getting a new stone grind. The RCS Classic skis are built with the Javelin shape, 41-44-44mm. This shape provides a stable platform for quick, strong kicks. The soft tips glide cleanly around corners in the track. This helps conserve skier energy and increase glide speed. Keep in mind more World Cup medals are won on Fischer than any other brand of skis.
