 This might be the most versatile ski in the test. That makes sense considering the new Ranger is a combination of its two forebears, the playful and metal-free Ranger FR and the finish-your-turn, metal laminate Ranger Ti. There are five models in the new line, increasing in width from 90-116mm. As the skis increase in width, Fischer increases the amount of tip and tail rocker and decreases the length of the Titanal sheet. In addition, the wider skis have more Flex Cut, a notch that splits the metal layer down the length of the ski, in front of and behind the boot. The 90 is the most directional and precise ski in the family. “Very responsive and stable on groomers. Skied well in bumps and crud,” wrote tester Becca Wright. It had a nice smooth feel in everything from the firm, early-morning conditions to fresh snow. And it was equally at home through a variety of turns and speeds. Like the Völkl Kendo, the Ranger is ideal for a “one-ski quiver,” wrote tester Chris Grover. We think the 90mm waist size is a good choice for eastern all-mountain skiers or for western skiers who also own a powder ski.
