RC4 The Curv GT Ski
The Curv collection consists of Fischer's performance oriented, race-worthy carving skis with a need for speed. Fischer's RC4 The Curv GT Ski is the widest one in the bunch, making it the most stable for riders fine-tuning their turning skills. With an 80mm waist, this ski is still plenty skinny for speedy, on-piste runs. Fischer shaped this ski with a triple radius sidecut the ensures a consistent turn angle throughout, and it springs you in and out of turns with a powerful energy.
Fischer built the RC4 incredibly stiff for an aggressive performance suitable for more advanced riders. Its Air Carbon Ti core consists of wood encapsulated in Titanal plates for rigid stiffness, and there are carbon stringers to amplify the ski's stiffness even more. The top sheet is all carbon, too, and its Diagotex grid gives torsional stability to drastically reduce chatter at high speeds. Fischer finished the ski off with durable sidewalls that have a concave shape to quicken the ski's edge-to-edge performance.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
