    Crush everything.

    Middle children have a reputation for being forgotten about, but that's not something the Ranger 98 Ti Ski is going to have to worry about. It's already gotten plenty of attention from its parents, the master Austrian engineers at Fischer, and it'll definitely be in with a shout to be the best-loved child in your quiver. While the Ranger 108 is fatter, and the 90 is edgier, neither of them hit the gigantic, all-mountain, pow-to-hardpack sweet spot of the 98mm width, along with the pow- crud- and corduroy-gobbling Freeski rocker that lets you use the 98 as an everyday stick, no matter which coast you call home.

    Rocker profiles aren't nearly as exciting as they were five years ago, but they still matter just as much. Fischer's Freeski rocker is pretty classic, with a significant rise at the tip, camber underfoot, and a gently raised tail that helps you switch up your turn shape, pivot on a dime, and handle the unexpected gnar. A tip made of carbon fiber reduces chatter, and Fischer's Aeroshape design thins the ski out towards the edges while keeping things thick in the middle, which helps the ski stay torsionally stiff when you're edging hard. There's also a layer of stiff and superlight carbon, along with a Titanal laminate, that gives the 98 some cojones when you feel like dropping the hammer.

    The Ranger series isn't just a lineup of in-bounds machines, though. Fischer made sure they were backcountry capable, largely by milling the Air Tec core with a honeycomb design, which dramatically reduces material without affecting stiffness. The poplar and beech wood core feels quick and nimble, but not jumpy, and it keeps the 98's weight manageable for medium length tours when you want to crush the descent, not just survive it.

    Good skis!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The ski wants to turn but holds an edge well when your ripping down groomers too. Felt good going fast and they're pretty damn playful. I feel like I could ski them well in tight trees and moguls. Haven't skied them in deeper snow yet but there's no reason to think they wouldn't do well. When you carry them in your hands they don't feel as super light as what you read but when you ski them, well, I can't say I've skied something that felt so light and nimble before-- I bought a pair after reading a lot of reviews and I will be keeping them! I recommend the Ranger! The top sheet seems to scratch easily...that's the only negative.

    Great skis.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Don't have a lot of laps in on these skis yet, but I was impressed enough by the demos I tried to buy them same day ... and it usually takes me a long time to make decisions like that.

    More in-depth review and star rating after I get more days in.

    Truly All Mountain

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have skied 3 days on my new Rangers and I am really happy with my choice so far. I haven't encountered anything that can get in their way so far...Knee deep powder (they float really well), icy crud, wind buff, and packed groomers. They performed great in all conditions. They are nimble, responsive and medium stiff. Looking foward to many more days on these!
