Contour Race skins are known for their durability and luxurious plush. You probably won’t sleep on them too often, but the snow will thank you for the soft petting. They are very grippy yet still have excellent glide. The Race kits are made of 100% mohair which is naturally light and sleek. The tips feature a neat plastic D-ring sewn in with a replaceable bungee cord attached. The cords are girth hitched to the D-ring and have a big plastic knob at the end for easy attaching and ripping.

  • Contour kits are parallel cut and come in 60, 62, and 65mm widths.
  • Quick-release bungee tip slides into the notches on most race skis.
  • Durable skin backing keeps your hair intact and climbing.
  • Reliable glue that sticks but can still be pulled apart.

The skins seem very light weight (more so than Pomocas? No gram scale here- kinda subjective) and glide great right out of the box. They climb like champs as well. On the other hand, I suspect the glue is not quite as good as Coletex and Pomoca (not to mention BD Gold). I began to see some balling of the glue after a few days of use while the aforementioned brands dont seem to show this for some time. Also, the tip bungee system is not that great. The bungee material is very thin and so they easily max out in stretch while applying them making it hard to pull the pull tab and remove them. Luckily, the mounting is cleverly designed to make the bungees easily replaceable with a thicker bungee material. That upgrade and probably new BD Gold glue should make these some awesome skins. Im not yet sure about long term durability since the snow is just too good to test that. I'll suffer through and report back with extended use but my initial feelings are that they will be ball park with Pomoca.
