Pomoca is only contented by having the fastest skins on the market. The Race Pro 2.0 formula has been competition and lab tested for several years with the singular goal of maximizing glide. This is the skin that Kilian Jornet has been winning race after race on in Europe. Now available for the rest of us, the Race 2.0 will shine on long climbs and traverses where extra resistance translates into lost energy. Soon to monopolize podiums around the world, the new pink skins from Pomoca are its best yet.

  • Robust Top Fix race attachment is a quick-rip and quick-apply bungee cord system.
  • Race Pro 2.0 is the glidey-est Pomoca formula yet with a low coefficient of friction.
  • Safer Skin Light is a tear-resistant, waterproof backing that is 12% lighter than others.
  • Every Dry 2.0 is an advanced hydrophobic treatment that is safer for the environment.
  • Glide Pro is a bonus fiber treatment that prevents hateful glopping and improves glide.
  • Fitted bag included so you don’t soil the precious glue between training and racing.

The Pomoca race skins are on worldcup podiums time and again for good reason. Though my experience is with the pomoca 1.0s and they've since been upgraded, I expect nothing but improvement. In comparison to coltex PDG race skins and atomic ultimate race skins, these are the winner.

Pros:
-Untouchable glide. Laughable really. Add some skin wax and you're on cloud 9.
-Traction, for how well they glide, is really impressive. They require good technique in challenging conditions, as any race skin does, but their low weight and great glide don't translate into reduced grip.
-Water repellent: more so than coltex and atomic, the treatment on the plush is good at holding off water when the conditions get rough. Not perfect, but good by comparison.
-Glue: The glue layer is thin thin thin but sticks like a boss and is fairly resistant to total failure in wet conditions.

Cons:
-Durability is not great in icy conditions, tending to shed plush underfoot a bit faster than the coltex do.
-Native tip attachment: not my favorite. Very secure most of the time, almost too secure. I don't trust the black plastic tab and prefer to have a tip loop made of knotted cord, which will never fail.
