After seeing the joy on the co-owner of Ski Trab’s face while making smooth turns in the Wasatch during low-tide, we knew we had to have what was under his feet. The Trabucchis truly love their craft, and the new Mistico is the latest product of that labor of love. It’s a wider version of the venerable Magico that excels in variable conditions, according to Adriano (both verbally and demonstrably). Like its little brother, the Mistico features the Attivo progressive shape and flex. The design can’t be explained succinctly with contemporary marketing lingo (e.g. rocker), but it just seems to work for whatever you’re doing. Despite our poor Italian, we could make out the subtle refinements that were being planned for the production version. Trab continues to produce the most meticulously designed skis in the world, with a cohesive plan from tip to tail.
Update for 2017/18: Just a newer, cooler, faster topsheet, otherwise the core remains the same.
