A ski made in North American called the Super Maximo would probably be 200mm wide. But this Ski Trab model is Italian so it measures less than half of that. And Super it is, with impressive float and steering due to the Low Omega Profile design. That means the thickness and flex varies along the length of the ski, offering stiffening edge hold in some areas and maneuverable flex in others. This makes turn initiation and exit a breeze. The Super Maximo is designed with the popular Attivo shape and swallow tail that makes Trab skis so well-rounded. They are light yet built tough with a multi-layer carbon & wood sandwich wrapped in a 3-year warranty. These skis will win hearts and minds worldwide.
- Offered as a stiffer “80” flex for bigger skiers, or “70” for lighter skiers.
- Attivo shape is a tapered tip & tail and a medium sidecut for all-round touring.
- Low Omega Profile is a thickness and flex variation integrated with the shape.
- LiWood box means a quadraxial carbon-wrapped wood core that is light yet damp.
- DuoTech tails help with turn entry and exit yet remain true when straight.
- Sintered bases and micro-finished HRC steel edges are Trab’s specialty.

Questions & Reviews
A competent skier who likes having superb edge hold and going fast will find the 80 flex makes for a snappy ski that can handle pushing into aggressive turns and high speeds. '80' flex is certainly better suited to larger skiers but can also be used effectively by other skiers who have a more aggressive style.
Only you can know how comfortable or risky you want to be with your experience and years in skiing. If you have skied comfortably with a very stiff ski before, I say have at it! There's nothing wrong though with going to a lower flex like the '70', which will provide for a more friendly ski in a larger range of conditions. Hope this helps!
