Wait for it... the weight (or lack of it)!
Slightly twitchy at high speed.

The 80 Ti sits comfortably in the middle of Fischer's Pro MTN range of skis, that the Austrian company boldly markets at "skiers who accept no boundaries".

Moving away from the advertising blurb, we found the Pro MTNs to be user-friendly all mountain skis with a bias towards the front side of the mountain - an early clue being a choice of widths ranging from 77 to 86.

However, the Pro MTN 80 Ti does have enough float to handle softer conditions away from the piste, thanks to some generous rocker in the nose and a touch of rise in the tail.

On groomed snow and crud it's a solid ride, with decent edge hold that encourages you to throw it into sharp, short turns. While it is a friendly ride, it definitely suits advanced skiers or intermediates with aspirations.

One lovely trick the ski pulls off is to have kept the weight down (Fischer says it is about 3.5kg per pair) while still being torsionally stiff. There's some nice solid titanium reinforcement in there but also judicious use of lighter materials, especially carbon.

That nose and tail we spoke of earlier is heavily 'carbonised' and while doing all sorts of good things for the weight and agility, it does mean there is a pay-off with a bit of flap on high speed turns - more noticeable amongst the heavier testers on our team!
