Technical info:
Fischer´s wide lightweighter, Hannibal, has been slightly modified this year. Just like before, it is a light glass and carbon fibre construction with a round semicap. However, this year´s version is softer in the entire length. It also has more sidecut in the front than in the rest of the ski. Little rocker and an even camber gives a long gliding surface on hard snow. This is an advantage on the ascent. The relatively long setback can also can be an advantage going uphill.

On snow:
In many ways Fischer Hannibal feels more like a giant slalom ski than a touring model. The stability at speed is surprisingly good considering the light weight, and it performs well on hard surfaces. Hannibal is better on hard snow than in deep powder. This is for the speed loving rider who´s looking for a ski that works both for touring and down the trail, at the same time as it´s light enough for longer trips in varying snow conditions.
