Fischer’s women’s freeride powder twintip returns in 2013/2014 with new graphics and new tip geometry. It may be designed for hanging out mostly off-piste, but testers applauded its hard-snow performance. "This ski likes to be laid over at high speed," Minneci said. "It's not for a non-aggressive skier. Give it some gas because it feels the need for speed." Named after its 110-millimeter waist, the KOA 110 has a long rockered tip, which provides flotation and easy turn initiation, coupled with a rockered tail that releases quickly out of the turn. Sandwich sidewall construction with a poplar wood core and a layer of carbon fiber helps keep weight down without losing liveliness. "For a fatter ski, it has good hold on the hardpack without too much vibration," Weatherbee said. "It's a great ski for hard-charging gals."
