The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Trace 98 Crown/Skin from Fischer is a ski without metal edges. It is specially designed for skiing with your dog. With classic skis with steel edges, you risk injuring your dog, which is why the Trace 98 has no steel edges.
The Trace 98 Crown/Skin has exactly the same sidecut as the S-Bound 98 but without the edges. It is a wide ski that is easy to turn, has an effective anti-backwards (flake) system and an Easy Skin half seal attachment.
Even though it has no edges, the side edges are reinforced and offer grip. Sure, they don't perform as well as steel edges, but you'll have grip on the slopes and control on the way down. But the program of this ski is aimed at dog owners, skijoring, hunters ...
Skis for use in the forest, on high altitude plateaus, to slide on moderate slopes and immerse yourself in nature. The width of the ski allows a good load capacity. Easy to handle thanks to its wide "wasp-waisted" sidecut.
Easy Skin : This is a system of attachment in the middle of the ski allowing the connection of a half Easy Skin seal skin. The Easy Skin sealskin is glued to the scale area, offering even more grip than the Offtrack scales already present on the ski soles. This light, effective anti-backwards system optimizes both grip and glide. Easy Skin is ideal for traversing valleys and limits the handling of skins. In short, you'll be able to transition between ascents and descents with ease. The Easy Skin device does not alter the glide and does not risk weakening the ski. There is no ice that forms at the slot in the ski. Easy Skin skins are sold separately.
