The award-winning Duo Race Aero ranks near the top of the technology podium and skis surprisingly well for its ultralight weight. Used by many randonee racers and ski mountaineers in Europe, the Duo Race is designed by Ski Trab using techniques and materials borrowed from the aerospace industry. With an Aramid honeycomb core that is found only in top end Ski Trab skis, the Race Aero is reinforced with carbon fiber and finished with radial edges and a sintered base to make an extremely competitive race ski that is durable enough for touring.
Duo Race Aero vs Gara Aero World Cup
The Duo Race Aero is manufactured with a similar process as the amazing Race Aero World Cup, with a few cost saving measures along the way that lower the price by $500. The Duo Race lacks the High Modulus carbon cage (Hibox) that wraps the WC version and allows the pricier ski to use a weight saving differentiated core. Coupled with a 5mm wider tip, the Duo Race Aero weighs in at 145 grams (5.1 ounces) more per ski than the World Cup [164cm].
