The Transalp 90 Carbon ski is the widest offering in Fischer's popular Transalp line, with added Carbon Tex technology to decrease tip chatter, as well as an updated profile to improve skinning and turning. With a moderate sidecut, this Transalp model features a wider and more rockered tip that Fischer is calling 'tour rocker'. This added rocker leads to a slightly more playful turn initiation while still maintaining the lively, stable, and poppy Fischer 'feel'. As a bonus, your tips will stay above the snow when you're breaking trail because the other guys "just aren't feelin' it today". Standard in all Fischer Transalp skis is the AirTec technology-- channels within the wood core which save weight along the whole length of the ski. The updated Transalp is perfectly tailored for your typical day in the backcountry-- light, stable, and skiable. It's also dang fun on those uphill resort laps.

Questions & Reviews
I would say that this ski will have just a bit more "pop" and is a bit more lively edge to edge than the Hyper Vector. It has a very "Fischer" like feel to it, meaning that once you load them up they really like to pop back and get into the next turn.
Thanks to JPM for setting up a good review format!

Compared to the Fischer Hannibal (which was described by Skimo Co as a powder-hunting, ice-carving powerhouse), the Fischer Transalp 90C has a rather nonchalant attitude when in the same conditions. A very fun, easy turning ski.
