The Fischer Koa 110 is Fischer''s flagship women''s powder ski. For Fischer''s Koa line, the 84 and 88mm waisted skis have a flat tail and are designed for all mountain and backcountry ability equally. These two versions have only rocker in the front, focusing on fast technical downhill ability. The 84 and 88mm waisted versions come with a skin notch in the tail making your backcountry trips a breeze. The 100 and 110mm waisted versions come full twin tip with rocker in the tip and tail. These skis are certainly geared more towards "off-piste" powder skiing. The Koa 110 will behave on the hardpack, but will butter all over the soft stuff. Wood cores with Air Carbon Tech and Sandwich Sidewall Construction guarantee a sturdy ski. This Koa 110 is rated for the advanced to expert skier who wants to shred steep lines and crush backcountry kickers. The Koa 110 has had no structrual changes from 2013 to 2014, just graphic changes.
