Technical info:
Transalp is a super light ski that has the same fibreglass construction as Hannibal. It is the lightest ski in the test, weighing only 1300 grams. It has a lot of sidecut in the back ski. Less sidecut from the waist and forward. Generally soft flex with a slightly stiffer tail.

On snow:
These skis are so light and easy to maneuver that you barely notice them under your feet. They work equally well for skidding and carving. Flotation is OK considering the narrow waist. Transalp 88´s weakness reveals itself in tracked snow, where the stability at speed is quite poor. The edge grip on hard surfaces is not very good either. However, these skis are playful on spring snow.
