Fischer's new Hybrid Technology "adjusts" the rocker by the flip of a switch. A mechanism in the core moves the contact point of the ski up for a rockered profile and closer to the snow for traditional camber. Testers note this technology works best in variable snow. "Add rocker and the ski is a crud buster," said Maybon. The Hybrid 9 has a 95 mm waist, a sandwich sidewall construction, woodcore and a combination of carbon and titanium for the high strength-to-weight ratio. "It's not nimble, but it makes up for it in powder and stability," said Mahon.
