Get that gold.
Fisher's Ultralite Crown EF Ski might be a classic cross country ski, but it has the feel of a racer to ready you for a Nordic marathon, whether that be a day away or a mere glimpse into the future. Fisher's innovative Efficient Forward technology accommodates beginner and recreational skiers, and it will suit advanced racers by allowing shorter or longer kicks. The shorter kick gives the power necessary for racers, while longer kicks lessen dynamism for beginners. Fisher built the Ultralite Crown EF out of an Air Tech Basalite core to live up to the ski's ultralight name, and a Power Layer ensures the torsional rigidity required for powerful skis. Vario Crown's speed-ground base gives a good glide whether you're new to the cross country game or not.

- Q & A
Do not come with bindings.
I ordered these as a gift and was surprised to find that they in fact do not come with bindings. Part of the reason I ordered these over the similar Rossignol Evo's was because they were set up and ready, but I've now had to spend the additional cash to get them on snow.
As far as performance go - they are exactly what you'd expect. I purchased these for someone who spends most of their time on mellow groomed terrain but occasionally takes them off-trail and into the backcountry. They perform well on just about everything from powder to hard pack to grooves. They feel lightweight and I expect these to last a very very long time.
Great Basic Cross Country Skis
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My husband and I are just getting into cross country skiing, so I snagged these for this season. They're great for getting us outside and moving in the winter and have worked perfectly so far!
