As an advocate of the classic Nordic-Cruising technique, you will not get past the new Orbiter from Fischer.
This classic cross-country ski convinced by the latest technologies coupled with decades of experience in cross-country skiing, the Fischer has no doubt. So the Orbiter offers you perfect sliding as well as climbing characteristics.
The technology that makes it possible is named Vario Crown and is the best you can get on the market. To make it even easier for newbies to start, this model is a bit wider and provides additional stability.
Or, in short, Wide Body Technology. Something very special is the structure of the core, two relevant technologies are used here.
On the one hand the Air Core Basalite, this type of construction involves the use of extremely light wood. In this wood are then drilled additional air ducts for even more ease.
The second technology is called Power Layer and is a 0.2mm thin laminate of natural fibers and resin.
