You don't need to be a gold medalist to ski the Fischer SCS Skate Skis, but they're not cut out for never evers, either. Fischer built the SCS with its World Cup Skate sidecut, which provides killer tracking and stability, particularly in V2 and V2 alternate. It also designed these sticks with an Air Core Basalite Pro core, which is made of super light composite, milled with weight reducing air channels, and reinforced with basalt stringers to give you a moderately stiff ski that flexes consistently in all temperatures, balancing power and smoothness. The World Cup Pro base is designed to be as versatile as the core, with a DTG World Cup Universal structure that handles wet, cold, warm, and powdery snow with equal aplomb and doesn't require an obsessive wax technician to keep it fast. The SCS is versatile, but it's no do it all but do it poorly wimp. It's built with Power Edge technology that stiffens the chassis of the ski, giving you a more powerful kick with less energy loss due to unnecessary torsional twisting, and works with the durable Tail Protector to give your skis a long, warp free life. Like all of Fischer's race inspired skis, the SCS is built using Computer Flex Control, ensuring that both of your boards will have identical flex and camber profiles, too, so you don't feel like you're skiing a different setup on each side.
