The Sintesi is lightweight mountaineering ski with a long-ish radius that has great handling on steep ice. It also handles the variable conditions your throw at it due to the Attivo progressive shape and flex. The Sintesi is offered with a couple stiffness ratings, with the "70" being more appropriate for bigger skiers or for carrying a heavy pack. The extra stiffness versus the "60" is due to a Power Fiber wrap around the core. Turns are easy to initiate in a pinch and the rebound is ample due to a light wood core. As per usual with Ski Trab, the skis are finished to perfection with a textured base and sharpened steel edges. The Sintesi is built in Italy and is covered by Trab’s unbeatable 3 year warranty. Let’s just say it’s not their first ski.
Update for 2018/19: Just a new topsheet, otherwise the ski remains the same.
