Colltex Race Tips

Brand: Colltex
Model: Race Fix
Shipping: Free over $50*
Availability: Out For Season - Notify Me
Price: $13.95

A simple and affordable tip system for race skins. The Colltex Race Fix kit consists of two bungee cords, washers and plastic end caps. They are affixed to your race skins with some vinyl and hammer rivets which are also included. You can also sew them on, which is how they come attached in the PDG kits. Whether your skins were purchased off the roll or dismembered in an accident, the Race Fix kit from Colltex will have you climbing on them in no time. Price is for a pair of skins.

  • Tie a knot behind the washer to set the length of the bungee as you desire.
  • Plastic end caps make for something to grab in order to rip your skins off.
  • Weigh 10 grams each including 2 rivets, or 11 if you are anal and use all three.

Pro tip: adding a bit of tape or melting the ends of the cord will help feed it through the end caps.

Question from Matt
I want to convert some black diamond glide lite skins to a tip attachment configuration for a Salomon Minim race ski do you recommend the Colltex race tips for this or would you recommend a different product?
Answer from jbo
Hi Matt, just about any race tip will work. This is a very cost effective kit for doing it, with a little more assembly required than the Kohla or Pomoca kits.
