Technical info:
Hagan Chimera 1.1. is made in a semicap construction that is only slightly heavier than Chimera Flow from the same manufacturer. It has a short turning radius in the front (18 m) and a very high camber in the back ski (15mR). It also has a short rocker in the front ski and a soft tip.

On snow:
Hagan delivers a good candidate for your next touring ski, especially if you're into the long trips during spring. They are quick, responsive and float well. They were also surprisingly fun in powder, even if the long sidecut isn´t ideal for skidding. With this weight and the waist width, you can forget about stableness at high speed, but otherwise, the Chimera 1.1 is an exciting choice.
