2016/2017 Fischer Pro MTN 86 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s All-Mountain Front Category.

“A great ski for the masses,” says Rice. “Solid in many different snow conditions and inspires confidence at all but the highest speeds.” Testers gave the Fischer Pro MTN 86 highest marks for versatility, lowest for float, and all commented on the ski’s weight. “I liked how light the tip feels,” says Cole. “It’s easy to dictate turns, but it’s a little too light for hard groomers.” Fischer calls the Pro MTN 86 “the lightest ski in the segment,” and indeed, along with a sandwich sidewall construction, the Pro Mountain tech story for the 86-mm-waisted ski involves weight saving elements. Air Tec Ti technology creates a thin profiled ski, combining a sheet of titanium with a beech/poplar core significantly milled out in vertical ski-length patterns. The rockered tips are lightened as well with carbon inserts.
