Sportube Series 3 Transport Case

If you’re looking for a great way to transport several pairs of skis then have a look at the Sportube 3, which can fit up to 4 pairs of skis equipped with tech bindings (not the larger frame or alpine bindings!), up to 185 or even 188 cm long, as well as poles.

Fischer Hannibal on the scales

Gara Titan Binding

The Gara Titan (aka Titan Vario) is a really great little binding.  It was designed for Skimo racing but it’s capable of so much more. If you want something that’s burly and light and you’re not worried about the safety concerns of releasability and lack of a good brake then this binding is highly recommended.


Fischer Hannibal 96 Skis

The Fischer Hannibal has been out for a few years. It’s touted as a lightweight well-crafted touring ski. I haven’t skied on the 2019 or earlier model so I can’t comment personally. But I got my hands on a pair of 185s last winter and had a good chance to put them through their paces.
