Similar to the category defining Gara Aero World Cup, the Ski Trab Race Aero ski is idea for people who want uphill performance at a more affordable price. The Race Aero is ideal for randonee racing or people who are uphill skiing for fitness. Weighing in at 1 pounds, 13 ounces per ski (164cm), the ski is built with 14 layers of technological know-how (most skis use 7 or 8), putting the exact type of material in the exact right place to achieve both light weight and high performance. The Aramid honeycomb compound core provides the best strength to weight ratio on the market for long-term, stability, performance, and long-term durability, keeping skis lightweight and strong.
Whether it's your first season of rando racing or you're just getting into both racing and exploring the backcountry, check out the Ski Trab Race Aero Ski. This ski provides shockingly high quality and top-tier performance without the corresponding price tag. Closely related to the Trab Gara Aero World Cup, the Race Aero uses slightly different materials, has a slightly wider tip, and weighs only slightly more--with more than a slight reduction in cost. Traditional camber makes this skinny-minny easy to pick out of a line-up of today's big-mountain, fat-boys skis. This ski lies flat on the snow when you're skinning up so every step is a step in the right direction, and you're not moving backwards. Quad cap construction takes carbon fiber and runs it in every direction around the Aramid honeycomb core so you're not dragging concrete blocks through the snow or visiting the dentist to fixed your chatter-cracked teeth. With only 64mm underfoot, you'll struggle with deep powder but dominate crusts and corn. Duo Tech takes the tail and splits in half. Attaching skins is simple and turning isn't a work-out in and of itself. Hardened steel edges not only sound badass but give your up-and-coming efforts stability without additional weight.
