The Hannibal is Fischer’s 96mm powder-hunting, ice-carving powerhouse. The Hannibal is built on a high-tech Paulownia wood core with carbon stringers that extend tip-to-tail. This reduces the overall density of the ski and boosts surface-area-to-weight ratio. The long-turn radius and Sandwich Sidewalls are unique features that serve multiple purposes. High-speed stability, surefooted steep-skiing performance, and impact-resistance will be the most obvious benefits to the skier. An Aeroshape top-sheet further reduces mass for easy kick turns and low swing-weight. As a bonus, snow will have a harder time sticking to the parabolic shape so your skis will start and end each climb at the same weight. The Hannibal is Fischer’s most advanced all-mountain touring ski that’s always hungry for powder.

  • Paulownia wood core is the standard material for light skis that need to perform well on the descent.
  • Carbon stringers are an incredibly light way to add power transmission and liveliness to the ski.
  • Tour Rocker helps you float in deep snow and charge effortlessly through the crud.
  • Air-Tec Ti core construction strategically removes unnecessary core material, adds a milled titanium sheet, and reduces weight for a lighter, wider ski that presents minimal torsional flex.
  • Aeroshape features a sloping top sheet that minimizes snow buildup on your skis, removes mass for easier kick turns, and increases surface-area-to-weight ratio.
  • Sandwich Sidewall allows for more secure edge-grip in technical lines by absorbing the small bumps, but it also increases high speed stability by dampening the ski when you decide to open it up.
  • Comes with a copy of Silence of the Lambs when purchased by the dozen.

Question from J P
 
Skimo's bottom line describing Hannibal as having the bacony, cheesy goodness of being an all around, easy, fun ski has my attention. I plan to pair these up with the Fischer Traverse Carbon and G3 Zed or? What length do you suggest at 148 lb, type II skier, III if I have to because of a bad decision and really close to 61 yrs age.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey J P! Bacony cheesy goodness? Now I want a baked potato. You are right in that it's a fun, easy ski and it'd be a perfect combo with a Zed and Travers Carbon. Binding recommendation is pretty personal so it's tough to recommend anything out of the gate without getting a little bit more info. Here's our binding finder if you'd like to get a personalized recommendation on some more bindings. For a Type II or III skier that's 148lbs and in some relatively lightweight (albeit powerful) boots, my gut reaction is to recommend the 169cm. There's a bit of wiggle room in that recommendation though when height and skiing style/location come into play so there's that, but like I said, 169cm is the place I'd start.

This is somewhat of an apples to oranges comparison since I have the previous 100 underfoot version. But the construction is unchanged so I thought a review would be helpful. I love this ski. It is a nice balance between weight and performance. As it was explained to me, "sure it is a bit heavier than the carbon ultra light skis. But you will appreciate that extra half pound on the way down. It will ski so much smoother and damper." I agree with that assessment. It is light enough on the up. It does not rip all conditions like a heavier ski, but it is surprisingly nice on the down. A good balance.
