CARBON-STRINGERS: Special Carbon Stringers ensure that weight is kept sensationally low with balanced flex and an optimised weight-torsion ratio. AIR TEC TI: Depending on the field of use, the AirTec core will be improved by an titanium reinforcement. TOUR ROCKER: The shorter contact length of the ski ensures that turn initiation is easier and requires less effort. Five different types: All Mountain ROCKER, Freeski ROCKER, Tour ROCKER, On Piste ROCKER, Hybrid ROCKER.AEROSHAPE: Special lightweight design for extreme torsion stability. EXTRUDED BASES: Extruded base material is very hard-wearing, but does not possess as good waxing properties as sintered bases.
SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION: Laminated construction with a wooden core and sidewalls to support the edges for highest stability, strength and durability. PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE: Ultralight wood used in ski making. Used specially for touring skis - either with cap or sandwich design. A Vertical skimo race is very simple: first one to the top wins. This is a racing classification designed to figure out who is the fittest alpine athlete that knows how to skin uphill.
Although not many of such races are held stateside, it's commonly featured for one day at World Cup events in Europe. The Verticalp ski is designed to win such races. As you can imagine, weight is an important factor in uphill-only races.
As such, the Verticalp tips the scales at a scant 580 grams. But mass isn't the only factor in getting up hill fast; kick turn efficiency becomes very important.
As such, Fischer installed a tuning system that allows you to adjust the center of gravity by sliding a weight fore or aft along the ski. This means you can make the tails drop during your kick turns so you can just pivot instead of potentially flailing. In short, the Verticalp will maximize your uphill skiing potential. Weight Tuning system lets you control the pivot-point balance.
Air-Tec Ti construction is a scored core with titanium reinforcements. Aeroshape topsheet sheds snow which can add weight to your ski.

The ultimate uphill machine out there. The Verticalp is specifically built to be the lightest and most dedicated uphill ski out there.This would be the weapon of choice for vertical races which are lung busting uphill only suffer-fests. Fischer pulls out all of their usual stops for weight savings.
Aeroshaping thins the wood core towards the edges where the wood is less important and promotes snow shedding. Air Tec Ti milling mills out extra wood in an offset pattern to ditch more pesky weight.Carbon stringers stiffen the ski back up after all of the aforementioned wood removal happens. In addition to the weight savings technologies, Fischer employs a weight tuning system. Adjustable weights allow you to dial in the speed of the tail drop during kick turns, minimizing kick needed and general awkwardness. If you are looking to improve the uphill part of your racing or fitness laps, the Verticalp should be near the top of your list.
