The Fischer Motive 88 is a versatile all mountain ski for the intermediate to casual advanced skier. Based around an 88mm waist the Motive is very responsive edge to edge and has the right amount of width to offer the float and performance needed to ski well off piste. This balance of on and off trail performance starts with a traditional sandwich sidewall construction to setup a foundation of strong edge hold and a stable predictable feel coupled with Dynamic Grip Control for instant turn initiation and continuous edge grip. To provide the liveliness and energetic feel the Motive 88 relies on a full wood core with Air Carbon, an ultralight and stiff material, to help control the pop with good vibration damping and a Carbon Tech weave to beef up the edge hold and balance out the total flex of the ski. The All Mountain Rocker, a slight rise in the tip with camber, is employed to make for easier turn initiation in all conditions and to allow the tip to stay on top of soft snow and crud for better performance in bad snow conditions and off trail. So the Motive 88 has the construction to grip at speed, the pop and liveliness make big sweeping turns or tight fall line turns with ease, and the shape to do it all in any terrain. Capped off with the Powerrail Binding System which provides additional leverage for improved response and control the Motive 88 is a nimble and powerful all mountain ski. Whether you already feel comfortable skiing all over the mountain or are just starting to explore the off trail pockets, the Fischer Motive 88 gives the smooth and energetic feeling needed to be ready for anything.


Skill Range:    


  • Dynamic Grip Control - Triple Internal Reinforcements In The Tip And Tail For Instant And Continuous Edge Grip
  • Carbon Tech - Cross Woven Carbon Fibers To Increase Torsional Stiffness For Improved Edge Grip
  • Air Carbon - Ultra Light And Stiff Material That Improves Handling And Control

        Comments about Fischer Motive 88 Skis with RSX 12 Powerrail Bindings:

        6'2" 200 lbs, fast skiier, bought this because i wanted an all-arounder (my last skis were salomon equipe 10 2V and they died on me). bought the 184cm length ones (flat, not with railflex). have only skiied upstate NY packed powder/groomers/ice... maybe it's not the absolute best on ice, but lets face it, the goal is to avoid ice anyway. pretty solid on everything else, stable at speed, good carver/turner, fun ski overall. flew past everyone on the mountain easily. would ski on anything with it. only gripe was it got a little chattery when pushed to supersonic speed, but still held it together ok and i'd take it there again. great ski, especially for the price.

                  • Q:

                    I have been on skis a few times, but I'm advanced on a board. I'm getting into ski's this season and I want to buy these but I noticed they are for intermediate / advanced skiers. I feel comfortable with my ability, and want to buy something that I'm not going to have to replace next season because I'm ready for more advanced terrain. Would these be good for this situation or will they be difficult to get comfortable on?

                      A:

                      The Fischer Motive 88 skis are a pretty advanced ski and may not be suitable for even an advanced intermediate level skier. If you feel like you would progress skill wise very quickly, these may be a bit tricky to use initially but will make a worthwhile investment over time.

                  • Q:

                    For these Fischer Motive 88 skis, "integrated binding" are just the front and back fixings for the shoe that are both bolted to the skis, or this "integrated binding" is like on Solomon X-wings - there is a metal rail that goes onto the pre-installed plastic plates. And then the front and back fixings goes over that meatal rail?

                      A:

                      The Fischer Motive 88's, like most integrated ski and binding systems we sell, come with a plate system that the bindings are then adjusted on, much like the X-Wings.

                      A:

                      The largest size most system skis, including the Motive 88's, will accommodate is typically around a 12.0 (32.0) boot. Unfortunately your 33.0 boots won't work with that system ski.

                      We do not automatically mount bindings upon shipment. We do offer a teching service for $75 if the skis, bindings and boots are all purchased through us at the same time.
