The Gara Aero World Cup race ski is the pinnacle of Ski Trab research and development. Using the new Attivo production process, the Gara (Italian for Race) Aero WC consists of 14 layers of lightweight technology. A Hibox 3k carbon fiber filament encases several layers of secret sauce wrapped around an Aramid honeycomb core. If you haven't heard of Aramid, you haven't worked in the aerospace industry. It's a synthetic fiber with an incredible strength-to-weight ratio, and is woven ingeniously by Ski Trab into a honeycomb pattern to make a stable and durable ski core. Also included in the Attivo ultralight line are shock absorbers running lengthwise along the top of the ski that reduce vibration and add structural protection to the edges, reducing blowouts.
Update 2015/16: Trab has introduced a stiffer version of their iconic race ski. The Flex 70 has the same shape and profile but is slightly more rigid, especially in the tail. This is good for big or backseat skiers. The traditional ski with a buttery flex is now labelled Flex 60.
