Just because you're a metal-head doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your hip flexors by heaving heavy metal freeride skis over mountains. In any event, give your muscles the sweet relief they deserve with a little help from the Fischer Transalp 88 Ski. Designed specifically for weight-conscious ski tourers and mountaineers alike, the Transalp weighs just over five pounds per pair so you can traverse ridges, hop canyons, and bag peaks all in a day's work. Additionally, the Transalp features a Tour Rocker, which combines an early rise in the tip with just-enough camber underfoot to help you stay super-stable on hardpack and variable terrain. A paulownia wood core is made even lighter by Fischer's Air Tec channel design, so you can say bye-bye to those pesky charlie horses mid ascent. The classic sandwich construction (combined ABS sidewalls) not only increases durability and shaves off ounces, but also ensures a responsive and balanced feel underfoot. Not to mention, the special Aeroshape design maintains the Transalp's torsional stability while keeping things from getting anywhere near heavy. How metal is that'
