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.
Questions & Reviews
Cut the original tip off, then punch holes for the rivets through the black patch and skin material. Then, fold the black patch on over the skin material and bungee, then rivet it in place. You can see how it should look on the PDG skins, only difference is the PDGs are sewn on instead of riveted, which is easier if you have access to a heavy duty sewing machine. Included with the tips are some instructions for how to assemble the rest of the tip.
One star off because the bungee / cap system is a bit wonky, and it is difficult to find the precise amount of bungee to include in order to make the clip stay shut. Had to fiddle with it for a bit prior to finding an adequate lock. Otherwise no issues.
