FISCHER RC4 THE CURV DTX 2017/18
THE CURV: Pure adrenalin for uncompromising skiers!
Think of the World Cup – but break the official guidelines. Think of a solid, freshly groomed slope in the morning- and ski the perfect curve. THE CURV is a precisely developed racing machine for experts – made from the very best materials. Nothing but absolute performance – the performance which the three skiing legends Hans Knauss, Mike von Grüningen and Kristian Ghedina had in mind over the last 24 months while it was being developed.
Extremely close to the professional equipment from the World Cup, but still suitable for the slopes. THE CURV makes extreme performance manageable with a high-quality technology package: Triple Radius enables previously unattained dynamic turns, the Progressive Sidecut concept means the ski has the optimum dimensions for the preferred skiing style and the DiagotexTM carbon laminate which is known from racing makes sure that torsion is perfect every time when cornering. The two-section Curv Booster plate makes cornering extremely quick and ensures optimum power transfer. This makes every turn simply breathtaking!
DTX: A highly cultivated race feeling: extremely dynamic turn behaviour thanks to DiagotexTM, Triple Radius and bright yellow World Cup base with original Race finish. Strengthened with 0.8 Titanal shell, this ski is built for demanding skiers who stretch their equipment to the limit!

Jury Statement: This ski offers Worldcup technology to every ambitious skier. Thanks to its triple radius, the CURV is solid and precise in every turn.
What the reviewers are saying:
“This is a super fun carver that can make either controlled GS turns or snappy slalom turns,” says former U.S. ski team member, Cole. “It feels like a race ski—with an everyday speed limit.”
“The traditional race ski feel is best suited for aggressive skiers who want to carve and push hard,” says Witman.
TRI RADIUS SYSTEM
The multi-radius shape of the CURV enhances control and power throughout the entire length of the turn – from the exact initation to the precise gliding phase on the edge and to the final acceleration out of the turn.
The CURV utilises the best and most innovative materials to create an unparalleled, diligently built everday race ski. The groundbreaking construction, the triple radius concept and high-quality titanium and carbon components take on-piste skiing to the next level of precision and performance.
DIAGOTEX TORSION TM
Vibration is the potential enemy of control. DIAGOTEX TORSION is an innovative diagonal Carbon grid that restricts torsion and enables the ski to quickly return to its original shape. In a high speed turn, DIAGOTEX helps defy centrifugal force and limits deflection and rebound to keep you on a precise track for maximum power and stability in turns.
AIR TEC TI
Depending on the field of use, the AirTec core will be improved by an titanium reinforcement.
SANDWICH SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION
Wood core combined with ABS sidewalls in a classic Sandwich Construction for balanced flex and perfect rebound.
Sintered bases have exceptional waxing properties and a very long service life.
BEECH POPLAR WOOD CORE
Stability combined with lightness for balanced flex.
The shorter contact length of the ski ensures that turn initiation is easier and requires less effort
