They say

This is the new technical tour de force from Trab. It uses a tight woven carbon cage which gives strong torsional stiffness while being able to deliver a softer flex.

We say

The Maestro was surprisingly strong on the piste with a strong edge hold for something so light, it held up well at a decent pace. With its narrow waist it’s quick from edge to edge and would be great on the steeps. In light, easy powder it was smooth and easy to manoeuvre. At higher speeds it felt much more unstable and didn’t really inspire confidence, it would need a strong technical skier to ride the Maestro at speed. Overall this is a great lightweight ski for multi hut trips and spring snow touring
