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 and reliable grip even at low temperatures. These skins are for the discerning alpinist.
100% mohair plush stays attached due to an Edge+ technology layer.
Wire buckle tips make a foolproof connection to the tips of most skis.
Adjustable tails use the Camlock+ system to clip on for security.
A waterproof barrier named 100% Dry helps prevent waterlogged glue.
Update 2017/18: Colltex changed the color scheme and renamed the skins Palu, but it's the same successful "Extreme" formula from previous seasons.
Hey Skimo team. Quick ? I am going to give the Combins another try this year. Is there any way I can apply regular skin glue to them to improve the adhesion? Is there a glue Colltex reccomends?
Hey Mitch! Not entirely sure! I haven't heard of anyone doing that, I suppose you probably could though. I can't think of a reason why you couldn't, but at the same time I have no idea how the hotmelt Colltex glue would react with that Combin adhesive. It could be quite the science experiment.
I have a pair of 169cm movement response x skis. Only interested in 100% mohair skins. what size should I be buying. Does the 165cm long skins fit this ski or do I need to buy a kit and build it myself?
Hi Shawn, with the relatively skinny tip buckle on the 100mm kits, the 156-165cm length won't fit on the 169cm Response Xs. You'll need the next one up in length which we are out of stock on, or get another brand/material.
