2015 Fischer KOA 100 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Back Category.

“This is a solid ski, good for an all-mountain intermediate or a strong skier who likes making long GS turns,” says Muecke of skiing the Fischer KOA 100. Testers gave the 100-mm-waisted ski high scores for stability, lower for versatility and average for float. Fischer’s freeride powder twintip profile includes a long rockered tip, which provides flotation and easy turn initiation, coupled with a rockered tail that releases quickly out of the turn. Tech details include a sandwich sidewall construction with a poplar wood core and a layer of lightweight carbon fiber. “The damp feeling doesn’t inspire play, but the stability instills confidence,” says Pugliese
