When Golden State signed Kevin Durant in 2016, dub nation wondered if another superstar was what the team really needed. Many fans worried that management was trying to fix something that wasn’t broken, but in the end, this gamble would pay-off big time. The Warriors went on to win the NBA title back-to-back in 2017 and 2018, proving that the adage ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ isn’t without exception. Much like the Golden State fans who worried about the KD trade, we may have doubted Ski Trab’s decision to rework the original Magico (but only for the briefest of moments). Luckily, the Magico.2's are everything the original Magico's were, only better in every way. Ski Trab's insanely durable 14-layer Aramid construction remains the bedrock of the ski. The shape and profile have been updated to enhance the skiability without compromising any performance. Ski Trab added some rocker, widened and lengthened the tips (the ski measures ~2cm longer in the 171cm length), and altered the flex of the ski so turn-initiation is easier and the back half of each turn is rock solid. This updated flex pattern allows you to carve the wind buff at the top of the couloir, nimbly hop turn through the steep choke, and then float through the pow fields at the bottom without compromise. With a waist measuring somewhere in the mid-80mm range (depending on the length you buy), the Ski Trab Magico.2 is a magic(o) all-mountain ski, and is ready for almost any type of snow (like we said in the original Magico listing, show us someone who can ski breakable crust *well*. We're waiting).

  • NoShock, a semi-soft barrier sitting between the edge and the core and which covers the tip and tail entirely, absorbs vibrations and provides stability.
  • The sidecut and flex pattern of the Magico 2 were built in tandem with one another, and work together to help the ski feel stable and damp.
  • With 10% flex underfoot and 20-30% flex in the tip and tail, you get the playfulness you want alongside the stable platform you need.
  • HiConnect is an internal carbon bridge that spans the guts of the ski from edge to edge, ensuring torsional rigidity.
  • Polymer inserts run lengthwise along the tip and tail, dampening vibrations and protecting the core of the ski.
  • DuoTail splits the tail down the middle, providing extra sensitivity as you finish a turn without hooking.
  • Sorry for the basketball reference, we do try to spice things up occasionally.
  • Aramid honeycomb in the core provides an optimal strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Ski Trab offers a 3-year warranty on this ski, which is made in Bormio, Italy.

This is a very special ski, made by craftsmen. Used it with overnight pack weight in 10" of new snow, and with it's matched skins it got around great. Nimble steady platform. Skied it on piste it carves, while narrow light and small (for my size, skiing the 178s). It handles extremely well on most snow conditions, especially at mid- to high-speed and shorter turns. It and a pair of Stevios from Trab a decade old remain my best skis. Matched them with Hagan Core 10s. Nice to have a light, full-featured break for in/out, but this ski is primarily out of bounds star material. I'd take them anywhere from the Midi where you don't want to fall or lose a ski, to SLC when it gets deep and surfy. if I knew how to ski Sierra boilerplate they would probably do well there too, and only chatter when you really crank up the speed. Like most Trabs they hold an edge well. Friends who can't see south of 90 wide may not see the point, but I love these for an all around ski anything ski and will do so for a decade to come because they are so well made (the Stevios are still going strong).

I have been lucky enough to demo these for a couple of weeks for spring/mountaineering conditions. I have also used midwinter in some powder. These skis are simply amazing. A ski so light (and some may say narrow) can ski well in any condition I have encountered. You can read all the high tech materials and construction above, all I can say it works. This year they took a great ski and tweaked it to make turn initiation even easier. I only skied the previous edition once, but I would have to say they accomplished that goal.
If you are looking for a Spring ski or an all Mtn/around ski, this one will do it all. I have skied in 6 and 8" powder and it does that exceedingly well, sure even deeper would be just fine. This photo was May 24, so fresh on a spring base, and varying wet and cutup down low. Fast and smooth all the way. This will be my next new ski.

Question from Christof N
 
Hey guys. I noticed in the specs it shows the waist width DECREASING as length increases. Am I reading this right? I’m not questioning SkiTrabs genius if that’s the case, just never seen that before in a ski line. Also, thoughts on length. This would replace my series 1 Helio 88/168cm as my speed touring/mountaineering ski. It will be used with a Travers Carbon CC boot and Titan release binding. 164 vs 171 is what I’m debating. The next ski in my quiver is a Helio 95 in 173cm, so I’d like this to be a obvious step down (up) in regards to weight and performance. Would the 164cm be too small? 5’10.5”, 170 lbs, and I'm a strong skier. Thanks again for all the help over the years!

Hey Christof, you are reading the specs correctly, the waist width is decreasing as the lengths increase. Ski Trab designed these to keep turning radius similar without adding width to the tips and tails which would increase the ski weight. After reading your description, I would recommend the 171cm length, the 164cm is great for climbing but I would be worried you would want something a little longer for the down.
