Every skier has a little bit of the Goldilocks spirit. But if Goldilocks had a pair of the Fischer Hannibal 106 Carbon touring skis, those bears never would’ve caught her. One of the lightest powder-chasing touring skis on the market, the Hannibal 106 Carbon is also one of the stiffest and most responsive in the turns even when the snow deteriorates down low.
The secret is Fischer’s Air Tech Ti core construction. They mill channels out of a standard paulownia wood core to shed weight, reinforce it with TitanAl strips for maximum binding security, and then slap a meticulously engineered carbon laminate on top for excellent torsional stability and dampening. The result is a powerful, sprightly all-mountain touring ski that’s not too serious, not too silly, but juuuust right.
The Hannibal 106 Carbon touring ski’s flat tail gives it a directional shape overall, but the steep progressive rocker at the tip keeps you floating up in the driver’s seat. Few skis this fat can handle chattery, unpleasant runouts as well as the Hannibal 106 Carbon, too, thanks to its ABS Sandwich Sidewall construction for perfect, powerful edge grip on ice and the carbon construction’s elite-level dampening on even the roughest of chunder.
