In the beginning, we would like to remind that our 2019 cross-country skis overview is based on our subjective perception. It is about what we like most in terms of technology and design. Nobody should be surprised that this overview will be dominated by Fischer skis. Fischer is currently the most successful brand in professional cross-country skiing for few seasons in a row and this overview mirrored that. Except for Fischer, we picked also some Rossignol 2019 skis models we liked.
