A ski that does everything!
I'm an advanced-expert skier and I've finally found a ski that takes on all kinds of conditions and terrain. It's my "go to" ski. Very fun and responsive and the perfect width for an all mountain ski.

Hi. I would like info about the stiffness, radius and weight of a 152cm. Has a rocekered or flat tail? thanks!
cecil on Jan 12, 2016
Best Answer: Fairly stiff (an advanced ski) rocker tip and tail. The tail is flat, in the sense that it is only designed to ski forward, not bacwards. turning radius is medium, 15m (only published for the 160 cm). Some review sites give 11m as the lower limit for the turning radius.
I assume you are asking abot the 2014-s which are not heavy. (Do not have a Titanal layer like the 2015-s)
The exact weight is not published by the manufacturer. If there is interest, I can measure one of the skis with the marker bindings I have on them and publish the info. The skis are fairly wide, so pay attention to the brake with when you chose bindings. Something in the 90-95 mm range.

how are the edges? is it good fro making turns on fairly icy tralils
amara on Feb 6, 2016
Best Answer: They come pretty with pretty keen edges from the factory. That is more or less a given
for a new pair of skis.

I think a more interesting question is: How rigid are the skis torsionally?

These are intermediate-advanced skis, full sidewall cap construction, some carbon fibber reinforcement,
they are fairly stiff torsionally. Note that the sidewalls are angled, which softens them a wee bit.

They are wider than your typical hard-pack skis, to achieve a compromise
between performing well on both hardpack, and powder.
So : will they perform ideally on hardpack? Depends on the speed , weight and aggressiveness of the
skier. For someone who skis mostly hardpack aggressively and at high speed, I would go with narrower
skis with vertical sidewalls.

My daughter is a skilled but fairly laidback 115 lbs skier.She skied them
at Killington in early january this year on hardpack / icy conditions and
lijked them.

Is this a flat ski. meaning it is adaptable to various bindings?
Deborah B on Sep 8, 2014
Best Answer: Hey Deborah.

I always like a binding with a brake width 5mm or more wider than the width of the ski. The Fischer Koa 88 have a waist width of 88mm. It is now a flat ski but various bindings can be used on the Koa. The binding you feel most comfortable with is recommended.

Would this ski be ok for a beginner to use?
Maddy on Nov 12, 2014
Best Answer: Madison,
These Fischer Koa 88 Skis are focused to a more intermediate and even advanced skier, who is looking to explore non-groomed trails around the mountain. This may not be the best choice for an entry level or beginner skier. Here is an example of a Fischer ski that may be better: http://www.the-house.com/8950fiasww13zz-fischer-skis.html For the most help, talk to our ski experts: 866-243-6932 or custserv@the-house.com
