Waist Width: 94
The Hannibal 94 is the slightly skinnier and lighter version of the big mountain touring ski, the Hannibal 100. It has a 126 mm tip, 94 mm waist, 112 mm tail, and 1250 g weight. These dimensions are designed to make this ski a great tool in powder, but also on hardpack since it’s not too wide to get it up on edge. It’s also got a long, 23 m radius (at 177 cm). If you’re a fan of touring but occasionally search for deep snow, cliffs, and chutes, this might be your best bet out of Fischer’s Tour series. For something similar but slightly wider and heavier, check out the Hannibal 100. This ski is part of Fischer’s Tour series, which specializes in the constantly evolving world of ski touring. Every model in the series features a variety of technology designed to keep them light yet powerful: Air Tec Ti and Aeroshape technology use lightweight materials like paulownia wood to decrease the skis’ weight (650 g – 1500 g, depending on model and length) and titanal strips to keep it stable at the same time. Tour Rocker lifts tips up, designed to get the ski up and over powder and other varied conditions while the tail stays relatively flat, designed to stay on the ground for edge control. For the most part, these skis are built to tackle off-piste terrain, and if you enjoy skinning up mountains as much as you enjoy skiing down them, this is the best series Fischer has to offer you. Fischer, based in Ried im Innkreis, Austria, was founded in 1923. Its U.S. headquarters are in Auburn, N.H.
