Fischer Ranger 90 Skis

The Fischer Ranger 90 is the narrowest offering in the Ranger line up, and is a very versatile, user-friendly ski that is approachable for many skiers. With a 90-millimeter waist, this ski excels on all front side terrain. Groomers, bumps, trees, steeps, even a bit if fresh, the Ranger 90 is both stable and secure. Its stability comes from a Shaped Titanal rib that runs through the ski, which provides dampness and stability with just the right amount of torsional stiffness. A poplar wood core adds stability and pop in and out turns, and you will feel the progressive edge grip really hold on firm snow. Sandwich Sidewall construction keeps the ski durable and strong and can take abuse and keep coming back for more. Intermediate skiers will enjoy how easy the 90 skis, and how it responds to input from the skier whether they are skiing slow, medium or fast speeds. The 90 gives you the confidence to reach your next levels performance, while growing with you every step of the way. Advanced skiers will also skiers appreciate the skis ability to carve and lay trenches on the groomers, while also attacking that zipper line in the bumps. For those skiers looking for to reach new heights or raise the bar on their own fun meter, the Fischer Ranger 90 will deliver for you run after run, day after day.

Hi guys. I'm an advanced, but aging : ( skier who mainly stays on the frontside. One trip out west a year might get me in some softer snow but for the most part I'm on firm groomers in Michigan. I really like to carve tight turns across the fall line so I'm looking for a ski that will do that and hold an edge, but not beat me up over time. My speed us usually less than 35 mph. I've been looking at the Mindbender 89TI, Salomon QST 92, Armada Declivity 92, and now this Ranger 90 has caught my eye. I'm 68 years old, 6'1", 195 lbs and have been skiing on a 179. What do you think would be the best ski for me? I know the Salomon will be updated for 2023 so use that for comparison if you can. Thanks!

Hi Tim!
These are all going to be excellent skis for the job, however I think you'll really enjoy either the Ranger 90 or the 2023 QST 92. The Ranger is an excellent balance of all mountain performance and groomer performance. The new ranger uses a shaped Titanal laminate giving it a little more backbone on groomers and icy hardpack while keeping it playful off the piste. The QST is lightweight but carries a lot of energy though the turn giving you a fun responsive ski on groomers while maintaining the off piste performance expected of a QST. I'm leaning more toward the Ranger for you but I also wouldn't count out the new QST.

Hey! Looking to pick up my first set of skis, and with the current supply issues, I've been unable to demo anything I'm interested in. I'm a 5' 10" 155 lbs intermediate male east coast skier who takes 2-3 trips out west each season. I'm looking for something that is generally more front-side focused, although I'd love some performance in glades and off shoots. I'm not planning on going too fast and would prefer something with some play that I can use to improve from intermediate to advanced. From what I can tell, the upper 80's to lower mid 90's seems to be the sweet spot for that, and I've been looking at this ski (Ranger 90), Rustler 9's, J Ski Fastforwards, and Salomon QST 92's. Any thoughts? Really appreciate the advice.
Question by: Justin Trainor on Feb 14, 2022, 3:17 PM
Hi Justin!
You're in the right zone for sure. If you like the front-side with some versatility, I think the Ranger is a great choice. Can't go wrong with the Rustler, either--very well-rounded, but I suspect you'll appreciate the quickness and agility of the Ranger. I'd go that route.

Where is metal laminate positioned within the ski?
Question by: Joseph Arcara on Feb 16, 2022, 8:53 PM
Hi Joseph!
it's full -width underfoot and extends forward to about mid-body and same for the tail. No metal in the very tips and tails of the ski.

How would you compare these skis to the Kendo 88s? I’m a 5’11” 175lbs east coast skier that spends 75% of my time on groomers. Thanks
Question by: Joe on Mar 8, 2022, 5:50 PM
HI Joe!
The Ranger is not the on-trail carver/performer that the Kendo is, but it's a lot easier to wrangle for sure. If you value precision, power, and stability at speed, you're better off on the Kendo, but for more off-piste activities and a generally easier go at it, the Ranger still has plenty of performance to offer. If you're aggressive and fast, I'd lean to the Kendo, but otherwise I'd strongly consider the Ranger.

I asked this question last week on the Sheeva 9 page but haven't had a response. Re-posting it here since the Q&A on women's skis isn't as active as "men's" skis.

I am looking for a 100% dedicated tree/mogul ski - mostly New England , mostly non-powder days. I am just getting into technical terrain and want a ski that will be a lot of fun as I learn. I have multiple options for those unfortunate days that are spent on groomers, so don't need the "all-mountain versatility" that most manufacturers claim for most/all of their skis. Trying to wade through the sea of everything for everyone offerings to figure out what will work best for this specific need.

I had pretty much decided on the Blizzard Rustler/Sheeva 9 and then I saw your introduction to the redesigned Ranger lineup and the Ranger 90 seemed like a really good option - closer to what I need than the Ranger 94 FR. How does the new Ranger 90 compare to the Sheeva 9? I'm 5'4" 132 pounds - I'll be buying the 157/158cm.
Question by: L. Walsh on Apr 4, 2022, 12:16 PM
Hi!
The new Ranger 90 has better float than the Sheeva but the Sheeva is going to have more grip for those firmer days. The Handling between these two skis is going to be fairly similar as well. I think for strictly woods and bumps the Sheeva is going to edge out the Ranger slightly.

Hi! I am looking for a new all mountain ski in the low to mid 90s. Looking at the new Ranger 90s, the QST 92 or the Ross Escaper. Im a 40 yo intermediate-advanced skier at 6'1", 185 lbs. Mostly ski groomers and trees with the kids, not too much at speed. Might see some off piste a few days (hours) a year. Also considering putting a Shift binding on these. Any thoughts?
Question by: Martin on Apr 27, 2022, 5:36 AM
Hi Martin!

The Ranger 90 sounds perfect here. Its got a shaped metal laminate for those icy groomer days, but also a maneuverable ski shape that doesn't catch in slow speed turns and trees. Its a great candidate for a shift binding and makes for a killer 50/50 ski.

Have fun out there!

Hi guys, thanks for the constant reviews & inspiration, I love tuning in for your expert opinions on a regular basis. I'm looking at this model for a fairly specific purpose & would love your thoughts. I'm based in Tasmania (Southern Hemisphere) & almost only free-tour these days, odd trip to New Zealand (+ than Japan trips, but that's an easier choice of second ski than this). Our snow is temperamental, going from fresh (not pow though, we're too low in altitude & get too much moisture) to a lot of ice, re-freeze, crust etc. I enjoy steep skiing & we have quite a bit of choice for that when the conditions align. I currently ski the Origin 96 (2017 model) with Marker Kingpins & am ok with this weight. I find this ski pretty good, mostly, but the long tail rocker & almost twin shape I find blows out easily when tight steep skiing. I'm looking at the Fischer Ranger 90 as an option, little less waist width, metal for stability & less of the tail issue. I'd probably mount my next ski with a Shift binding for the extra knee protection. Any other models you might recommend? I' fear going to a light touring specific ski I'd suffer instability when it gets icy & get bounced around. The Huslte 9 intrigues me, but I think the semi-twin tail again might be a bit loose for steeps? Other models i'm considering include the Ripstick 96 Black, Declivity 92ti, Faction Dictator (1 or 2), faction Agent 2 (too light?), maybe the new Faction La Machine Micro, but haven't seen the rocker profile on that, maybe even the Dynastar M-Tour 90 or 99. I guess I'm looking in the 88-96 +/- width, still a little bit of tail rocker (but not twin), metal if it's going to help with ice & variable stability, bit of tip rocker for float.... As I say, a free-touring ski down here is vastly different than what it's defined as in the US, though there may be some parallels to East Coast touring. I do try to tour for the down, for fresh tracks, it's just conditions are so variable it's tough to choose. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks guys. Stu B.
Question by: Stu Bowling on Jul 5, 2022, 10:43 PM
Hi Stu!

The Ranger 90 would certainly fit the bill for what you're looking for. I however would like to suggest the Atomic Maverick 95 Ti if you are okay with the Origin 96 weight. These come in a little lighter than the Origins and the Ragner at 1699 g per ski (172) and feature a dual metal laminate and just about as much tip rocker as the origin but with a flatter tail and a much longer running length. You also get Atomics HRZN tip which give this ski the versatility it needs to jump around the woods and moguls, float in powder, but also lock into turns on icy steeps. If you wanted to shed a little more weight you could even jump down to the Maverick 88 Ti. Either of these skis with a shift binding would work extremely well given your circumstances. Hope this helps!

I am considering both the Ranger 90 and Atomic Bent 90’s. I am an intermediate to advanced skier that splits 40% groomers, 20% moguls, 20% trees, and 20% ungroomed. I enjoy hitting bumps and jumps on the side of the trail, but don’t spend time in the park. I have a pair of BC 100’s for powder days and love those skis. I am 5’11” and 155 lbs, all of my skiing is out west and I get in about 30 days/year. Would you recommend the Bent 90’s or Ranger 90’s for my second out of skis?
Question by: Kevin on Aug 2, 2022, 10:25 AM
HI Kevin!
I have both the BC 90 and 100, and that was more a matter of chance than choice. If I were to choose a complementary ski to the BC 100, I'd go with the Ranger, as it's way more front-side capable than the BC 90. Have fun!

Bent 90 vs Ranger 90? My main side ski is a Brahma 82 180cm. This would be a second ski, not a replacement.
Question by: Brett Thomas on Nov 26, 2022, 7:43 PM
Bent is lighter, quicker, more playful, and more of a twin tip. Ranger 90 is still a very playful ski, but has more strength underfoot, more vibration damping, and better edge grip. Still agile in bumps and trees, although not quite as quick as the Bent, but you certainly gain a lot of strength. Hope that helps!
