Hi Karl, To answer your question, the Hugo top is slightly thinner and a bit more breathable then the race suit. The race suit top has a bit of a DWR treatment that makes the top feel more substantial, that and the skin pockets on the outside of the suit add up to be more wind blocking. The Hugo top is super thin and breathable making it a great option when trying to shed that extra thermal energy. Hope that helps, Tim
Hey Vincent, For what you are doing and the snow pack there in Quebec I would suggest going with the 88s. With the early rise this ski will float very well in the Quebec snow and I think you will find it a bit more versatile then the 95s. The early rise will also make these skis feel a tad shorter so I would think the 170cm would be the best choice.
Hi Gerhard, The Stelvio would be a great option! It is a bit damper then it's full carbon siblings in the Ski Trab lineup, giving it a nice rounded feel and making it very adaptable. Other ski to check out, that may also be along the same line, is the Atomic Backland UL 85. Tim

Hi Dave, Unfortunately no, the Tecton brakes and the Xenic brakes are not compatible . The wire gate is a bit different as well as the thickness of the pad you would be stepping on. Even if you were able to get the Tecton to fit into the Xenic holder, I would be concerned about the brake causing you to pre-release vertically.
