The Fischer Voyager EF XC skis with Tour Step-in bindings are a fantastic option for beginner and intermediate cross-country skiers who are looking to get out there and enjoy their time at the Nordic center. Whether you're a backyard shuffler or an in-track kick and glider, the Voyager skis and bindings are built and shaped to take you all over the place. They're easy to use, well-built, and a ton of fun. For skiers looking for that high-level of fun and quality, look no further than the Voyager skis. Complete with bindings, this setup is ideal for having a good time both in and out of the track. Fischer's Efficient Forward design is one of the key technologies to these skis, and it allows the skier to get an easier stride in the kick phase. By softening the shovel of the ski, you can get more angulation and a higher kick which will serve you better as you advance through the levels. The higher back you can kick, the more energy you're going to create. Recreational skiers don't need or want their skis to be too stiff in this phase of the kick, so Fischer's Efficient Forward design allows you to gain confidence and kick back higher than if the ski were stiffer. The Vario Crown gives the grip to the ski, again acting as a nice confidence booster for emerging classic skiers.
