The Pomoca Top Fix RACE attachments consist of a highly elastic 3.5mm traction cord, an eliptical ring with excentric holes, and a plastic end cap. These weigh 9 grams per tip including two rivets and the adjustable plastic end grip (which is now white, not black as in the picture). If you don't like peeling climbing skins off your skis with your finger nails, consider adding some tip attachments. Price is for a pair that comes with installation instructions.

[My review is based on the version that comes with La Sportiva X-Race skins – even though La Sportiva apparently uses a different supplier for the actual skins, the X-Race tip hardware looks *exactly* the same as the Pomoca version shown here.]

Five Stars minus One Caveat: the supplied rivets didn’t work out well for me, so I reverted to my trusty Speed Stitcher Sewing awl. Otherwise, everything about this is a step above making them yourself: the cord is just right, the length adjustment is slick, and the crimping works well for setting up the stopper’s attachment point.

For those that don't want to sew, this kit is for you.

After making a couple of my own skins I've strayed away from these. I save the pull tabs and stoppers and reuse them when I make my next pair.

My best advice would be to get a speedy stitcher and sew the tabs down. I am not a fan of their press clamps, so this solves the problem for me. Also for you gram counters (this is a skimo site), sewing the skins down instead of the clamps saves weight. You can further make it lighter by using a bottle cap instead of the plastic/metal tab that comes in the kit.

I highly recommend looking into getting a speedy stitcher and making your own pull tabs that way.

For light and fast skin removal methods, I haven't used anything better than this tip attachment system.

Just make sure you crimp the crimps TIGHTLY. And put the clampy black tip end on the end of the 3.5mm cords, I've seen people try to right this the wrong way before. The clamp makes it easy to pull the skins off while wearing gloves, even bulky, big ones.

Had a tip clamp partially blow up somehow (no idea) but the system can still be used without it. Just make sure to melt the nylon around the 3.5 mm stretch cord, or it will fray heavily.
