    Ranger 102 FR Ski

    You're not the type of skier to stick within the confines of groomed terrain, and you're certainly not the type of skier to let your ski hold you back from exploring, which makes the Fischer Men's Ranger 102 FR Ski a great choice for ripping the whole mountain. The 102 millimeter waist is enough to keep you afloat when the storm delivers, but won't leave you feeling like you have too much ski when there's a dry spell and you're relegated to groomer laps. Rocker in the tip and tail deliver an easy maneuverability and add improved float when the going gets deep, while underfoot camber gives you confidence and grip on firm patches.

    The Ranger is equipped with twin tips just in case you feel inspired and want to hone in your tricks off of backside cliffs, and the lightweight wood core with added Titanal makes sure the ski stays damp and stable as you open up your speed. A carbon laminate and carbon inlay in the shovel adds strength to the ride for better control and power, meaning you can zoom through any conditions the mountain throws at you in search of leftover fresh and visionary lines.

    • All-mountain ski with a penchant for off-piste exploration
    • 102mm waist can handle storm days and groomer days alike
    • Tip and tail rocker add float in powder and easy maneuverability

    Ridiculously Fun

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Had a chance to demo these for a few weeks last season and I can't say enough good things about the addition of this 102 waisted ski to the ranger line.

    At 102 underfoot, they are the perfect do everything ski for all conditions. The shape of this ski is what really makes them super fun to ski. You can push the ski into a turn and they just bite effortlessly on edge. I ripped around on groomers and they felt as stable and nimble as a pair of narrow waisted all mountain skis.

    The carbon laminate top sheet provides not only a super sleek finish but give this ski a thinner yet extremely stiff profile. Imagine the difference between a hatchet and a scalpel. These things slice lightly through all snow conditions and respond quickly to rider feedback. And they don't have the charactertic chatter of most carbon skis as they are backed up by a titanal construction.

    Tip and tail rocker allow for forgiving turn initiation and they float super nicely across all snow types. Transitions are a breeze and they are super nice going from shaded trees to sunny open faces in the same run.

    The one con i would give is that because they are nimble, light (for their class) and have a low "swing weight" - they can feel less stable than a full metal jacket ski. I only noticed a bit of vibration when i max the speed out on a straight line through variable snow. Even then, if you throw em to the side they just load up so nicely that all is forgiven.

    One of my favorite skis this season for every condition. the 102 waist width is unexpectedly perfect for all conditions.

    Hey Bremmick -

    The price difference between these and the Bentchetler is pretty significant and they are really two different styles of skis that have similar waist widths. That being said, I think the Ranger 102FR is a bit more ski across the board. They are much stiffer, built a bit more to handle all conditions, and seem to rail a bit harder. They are bit more directional than the bentchet as well - when you pointed them straight they "spool" up and just go. The Bentchet's were a bit less "stable" at high speed - in that I could feel slight physical feedback chatter vs the Ranger 102 seemed to not have a top speed for the conditions I was skiing.

    Honestly depends on what you plan on skiing and at what pace. Tram laps at Jackson or Snowbird where you plan on taking the "direct" line - you'd likely be better off with these. If your style is more to take the long way down, popping off side hits, and messing around - the Bentchet is more that style.

    Where they both match is the ease of skiing and the ability to change directions quickly. The Bentchets are a pound lighter, more rocker, and softer and have that buttery feel, while the Ranger's are "sharper" and have a nice stiffer flex profile that responds extremely well to skier feedback and can rip a hard super-G turn - where the bentchets would be hard pressed to be able to do the same.

    Probably a bit much info - but honestly I havent made up my mind this year - but stuff is starting to stock out so i need to figure it out haha. Cheers- hope this helps.
