Product Description
Gara Aero LS Alpine Touring Ski by La Sportiva
The La Sportiva Gara Aero LS Alpine Touring Skis may not be a bird, plane, or superhero, but they still fly--up hills, that is. Born from a collaboration with Ski Trab, these ultralight, World Cup race skis feature a groundbreaking Attivo progressive shape and flex, which enables athletes to rapidly propel themselves uphill using less energy than traditionally shaped skis. As the Gara Aero LS is for the "core" crowd, the ski core construction is worth noting. Aramid (a synthetic fiber hitting spaceships, jets, and La Sportiva skis near you) woven into a honeycomb pattern provides an unearthly strength-to-weight ratio, and when snuggled up to Hibox 3k carbon fiber filament, the skis are all but indestructible--oh, and they weigh three pounds per pair. Yes, per pair. You read that right. Deliciously steerable on hardpack, buoyant enough to traipse through soft snow, and equipped with shock absorption technology, the Gara Aero LS isn't lacking in the downhill fun arena, but the ascent-oriented details make the ski shine. Applying and ripping off skins is lightning fast thanks to the Attivo skin fixing system. Add a Light Tech anti-scratch topsheet with water-repellent nanotechnology finish to keep the topsheets free of snow, and you might just break the sound barrier on these skis. Go ahead, we'll listen for the boom.

Featured Wildlife
The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
