GREAT BACKCOUNTRY SKI!
The Volare by Ski Trab are LIGHT! I have a pair of the 185's and they ski well in various snow conditions - from crud to powder to chalk, these skis ski like a dream, and my legs are not torched on the descent because of the lightness of the skis on the ascent! The way a backcountry ski should be. Light, wide enough for deep and not too wide to feel awkward when trying to edge on firm snow, either up or down. The taper and mini swallow tail, coupled with the over-sized tip keep the tip up without "early rise" and without reducing the carvability.
Regarding non Trab skins...I notched out one side of the tip on each ski and it holds regular skins just fine. With the tail I notched out the swallow tail to square it up and it takes the BD tail clips just fine.
Bottom Line: A light mid-fat ski that rips all snow conditions with ease. My go to ski for terrain where manual up is required.
