Trim To Fit Skins for Skis
Customizable skin kits are designed to fit any pair of skis. Choose based on your preferred skin material, glue, or attachment systems. These trim-to-fit kits come with cutting tools to adapt to the shape of your skis. Make sure you select the right length for kits that already have the tip and tails pre-attached, or get a universal kit.
Race skins for wide skis! The Pomoca Race Back Fix is the easiest way to apply the buttery glide of your race skins to bigger planks. Ideal for clocking the fastest powder laps and skiing objectives when time is crucial, but you still prefer to bring your wider skis. The Race Back Fix functions perfectly as a mid-winter skin for your powder boards or a supplemental skin for long ap..
With the veritable explosion in the US of folks entering the backcountry market, ski shops are on the hunt for the ideal skin for the casual backcountry skier. Colltex threw their hat in the ring with the Clariden skins, which have a plush that is made from a classic 65/35 blend of mohair any nylon. The traditional skin glue is replaced by an acrylic adhesive that is easy to work w..
Since the dawn of climbing skins, skier-kind in colder climates have been faced with a relatively unique problem; how do you keep your skins in place? In order to get perfect adhesion during brutally cold temperatures, skins typically use a rather “sticky” adhesive. The problem? Getting them off during transitions often proves to be a better (and more full body) workout than your s..
Also known as the Pomoca Climb Pro, these 100% mohair skins give you natural glide. However, unlike untreated mohair that can get waterlogged, the Pomocas feature an EverDry treatment that helps prevent glomming and a waterproof membrane to keep moisture off your glue. Think of it as modern mohair. Also modern is the ready2Climb attachment set with a replaceable tip buckle (two siz..

Colltex has taken mohair to the extreme. They did this by naming their 100% mohair skins “Colltex Extreme” and by coloring the skins red which is the fastest color (at least in cars). If that isn’t enough to scare you off then you will be extremely pleased with the contents of the blue box. Inside are skins proven through countless climbs through the Alps, with no-compromise glide ..

Mohair skins from the mohair experts. As the first company to use mohair to make climbing skins, Contour knows its way around the barn. Coupled with attachments that know their way around your ski, the trim-to-fit Guide Cut skins are hard to beat. The fast mohair glide is a given. But with a thicker plush and backing than the competition, the grip and durability are also solid. Don..

We’re not sure but we think the “S” stands for “Super”. The new Pomoca Super treatment on the old reliable Climb Pro Glide skins makes them even better at sliding. The friction coefficient is now more akin to racing formulas than to similar mohair-mix skins. Good sliding technique will be rewarded with up to 20% energy savings on an average climb, a figure extrapolated from recent ..

The S-Glide skins have very little room to improve. Pomoca is trying to one-up themselves anyway. The Tipon formula has a thinner backing material and an innovative “non-glue” adhesive. The result is a skin that is lighter, much more packable, and easy to manage on/off your skis. The adhesive won’t ball up and is easy to wash with soap and water if it gets dirty. Pomoca Tipon skins..
The Hybrid glue system from Contour solves the stickiest skin problem. That is designing a glue strong enough to adhere to the backing but not so strong that you can’t separate a skin from itself. Contour achieved this goal by using multiple layers of glue. An especially sticky formula rests against the skin which is covered in another layer of less tacky glue that keeps the interf..
Colltex invented the adhesive climbing skin in the sixties, and they continue to produce amazing skins that are chosen by guides and companies such as Atomic, Movement, and Ski Trab. The Mix formula is a workhorse blend of 65% mohair and 35% nylon that gets you up the hill reliably. With the abrasion resistance of nylon and the glide of mohair, the Mix is a great all-around skin fo..
The compromise between lightweight packability and reliable grip is a perennial challenge that skin makers are trying to address. How much mohair? How much nylon? How much of the bottom of the ski do we want to cover? G3 has been making skins for years, and their Minimist line was created to address that very challenge. The Minimist Glide skin is a 70/30 momix skin that packs the b..

Voile has gotten serious about their climbing skin performance. By teaming up with industry-leading Pomoca, Voile is taking advantage of the best technology available. The Hyper Glide skins are a 70% mohair 30% nylon mix that provide the best balance between claw-like uphill grip, and energy-saving silky glide. Ever Dry hydrophobic treatment prevents the fibers from absorbing water..
Black Diamond skins are coming around to the light side. The “UltraLight” construction is 20% lighter and more packable than previous iterations. In addition, BD renovated the tip attachments into a simple Dynex™ cord and pipe that is light, secure, and field replaceable. All this means you can have the most reliable glue in the industry without the weight penalties. The UltraLite ..
The Pomoca Climb 2.0 formula focuses on savings of both the weight and cash varieties. Pomoca uses a short nap on its Safer Skin Light backing, making for an extremely lightweight and packable skin. They also shaved a few dollars off the price by skipping the S-Glide treatment, making this skin perfect for folks who like to step up the hill without sliding backward and who aren't c..

If you were to look up the definition of “Freeride Skiing” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, you wouldn’t find anything, because such a definition doesn’t exist. If it did exist, however, we like to envision it being narrated in the voice of Sir David Attenborough as a waxing-poetic ode to the ultimate freedom that can only be obtained by ski touring. It was this same sense of fre..
The GlideLite mix skins are 65/35 blend of mohair and nylon. They are lighter, faster, and more packable than the equivalent Ascension skins. The glue is BD Gold Label, a secret formula that arguably works too well. GlideLite skins are held to your skis with an adjustable cable tip and (optionally) the rugged STS tails. Both ends offer field-replaceable parts, making these a good c..
Combin must be German for “speed,” because the new Colltex skins nail the light ‘n fast concept that we hold so dear. Building on the formulas that have made the brand a regional favorite, the Combin skin features supple material with the grip of a much heavier skin. Colltex locked the world’s leading chemists in a room until they came up with a groundbreaking adhesive. The glue-li..

Skiers have been enjoying a plethora of options when it comes to skin selection. Splitboarders, on the other hand, have been left with few options, most of which offer very little in terms of glide, packability and weight. Voile, the company that brought the splitboard to the world-at-large, is set to rectify this situation with a formula sure to be popular with the growing cadre o..
