When the Golden State Warriors set the regular-season win record and then went on to win the NBA championship in 2016, many people believed their roster at the time was unbeatable. Despite their success, coach Steve Kerr and the Golden State management weren't about to simply rest on their laurels, and they promptly proceeded to sign superstar Kevin Durant to the Warriors for a two-year deal. Sports analysts promised dizzying success for the Curry/Thompson/Durant/Green Warriors, and in both 2017 and 2018 the Warriors won the league title. If you transfer this storyline to the world of skiing, the engineers and athletes over at Ski Trab are Steve Kerr and the Golden State management, while the Ski Trab Magico.2's are the 16/17 and 17/18 Warriors. The original Magico was beloved by everyone, yet Ski Trab knew they could achieve a higher level of excellence, so they took a chance and redesigning a ski that is considered a masterpiece by most standards. This move is a testament to their mastery of ski design, and speaks to how well they practice their craft.
Bearing the lofty title of "Jason's Favorite Ski" (even more prestigious than "NBA Champion"), 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 allows you to surf, carve, and ski fast without losing the classic Magico versatility, meaning you get 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. 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).
