Ski Diva Extraordinaire
I've been asked about more cage matches. Well, here you go.
Actually I commend their decision, and was actually a part of the discussion when they had the focus group. If you were in the room when discussion happened, you'd be saying...hmmmm, makes sense.Interesting that Fischer are going unisex, I may be wrong but it seems to me like a step back to "pink it and shrink it" times
I never have clicked with the Maven line--the ones with titanal a bit more than the ones without, but that Atomic Cloud series on Snowhot's feet== (Read between the lines--I don't love lively skis.) I do have in my notes that the Maven 86 had "very intuitive turn initiation" and rewarded a more centered stance, which allowed the "tails to come alive" and had a tighter turn radius. If I had to choose between the AmerSports products--Maven vs. new Salomon Stance line, I'd go with the Stance line. In fact, I was pretty smitten with those skis (all the widths--they were fun!) and might add one to my collection this year. Gotta get out in the new boots and see how my current collection is feeling. Bootfitter Brent thinks that the short cuff boot is going to make skiing wider skis a lot more enjoyable for me. (Sidenote: Husband is attending a meeting with our favorite Salomon rep tonight to get the lowdown on all the stuff for this season. I might have to tag along!)
I still dream of owning a Cloud 12. The 14s were just enough above my pay grade that I wouldn't go that route. Holy crap that was a fun ski.I'm sitting in the North American headquarters for Fischer right now, as we are going over the 2024-25 line up.
They're still staying unisex with their line up, but with different flexes/sizes, but they are offering everyting in the Ranger and CURV line in two different colors, to appeal to different demographics across all genders. On the CURV line they'll be labeling one of the color options WS for women specific, however won't be pigeon holed for women only.

@contestant I remember you and I sharing notes about the differences in the C and Ti versions of the Maven line.
But the Clouds! WOW!
