Skins are made of tips, tails, glue, and fur. Except the fur, these can all be replaced. Here is our current lineup of parts from Colltex, the makers of Colltex skins.

Ace Tip Attachments - Combining the security of a standard tip attachment with the speed and efficiency of a race-notch. The Ace installs like a normal tip attachment without having to adjust your tail strap. Pull on the red tab to pop the metal clip off the tip of the ski and then rip the skins from the tip without taking off your skis. Simpler and faster. Two tips included, rivets not included.

Adjustable Tip Brackets – Inner and outer metal brackets that you can hammer together to acheive the right width for your ski tips. 70+ mm.

Camlock+ Tail Kit – Two adjustable tail straps with Camlock+ clips and rivets to hold 'em on.

Camlock+ Tail Clips – Two plastic and metal clips that hold Camlock+ tail straps onto a ski. Straps not included.

Adhesive Tube – Have your magic carpets lost their magic? Not to worry. Refresh with a new layer of glue. 75ml.

Acrylic Tape – A refresher coating of the acrylic non-glue formula formerly known as Whizzz and now called Clariden.

Protective Netting – Keep your climbing skin glue fresh and clean with protective netting. Sometimes called 'cheat sheets'. Two 95cm strips fit skins up to 140mm wide.

Carry Bag – Nice bag for storage and transport of climbing skin kits. Emblazened with Colltex logo.

Skin Clips - These handy little things fix to the end of the skin to secure on your skis. The skin clips include tip loop and tip attachment fabric with x6 rivets.

Question from Eric
 
I'm looking for front skin clips that will work with Atomic Backland HRZN Tech skis with a notch. Traditional brackets are not ideal with the HRZN tip. It looks like Ace Tip Attachments should work but might be fussy getting them centered so one side doesn't fall sideways into the ski's notch.

Colltex Skin clips EVO look like a perfect solution, are there any plans to add to your inventory in the future? Are there any other non-race non-rubber tip attachments that will work with a notch ?

Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Eric. Other than race-style tips, there are no tip attachments that will work with a tip notch, sorry about that! The 75mm Vario Buckle should sit nicely on the tip without interfering with the horizon tech, though. In terms of carrying more product from Colltex, definitely check back at the beginning of next season!

I decided to apply the acrylate tape to my Colltex Clariden skins.
Application was nice and clean, no goop ;-).

Followed the instructions (including the unexpected step of leaving the protective backing on the tape until putting them in the skis, and really pressing the tape on firmly).

After first use, the adhesive started delaminating. In fact, after several uses, some of the original adhesive has peeled off!

I found this discussion online:
https://www.eagleskiclub.org.uk/forum/colltex-whizz-skins-re-gluing-experiences

where the user had the same issue, and was told by Colltex that you need to use skinsavers once you have applied the tape.
In their own application video, they specifically say you can store them skin-to-skin, just like stock.

Question from Steve
 
Will the Colltex Ace tip attachment work with most skis? Or are they for a specific pair? I have the Fischer Hannibal 106. Lastly do the skins need tail attachments to make the tips work?
Thanks

Answer from eric
 
Steve- The ace tip will work on most skis. The only ski tips that might have issues are any that are more pointy in shape. Tail attachments are not needed for this tip to work. I think of the Ace tip as a substitution for cutting a tip notch in a ski to get a front tip rip.

Question from Luke S
 
I have a new pair of 0g 95s, and an old pair of pomoca skins that I'm hoping to refurbish (the glue), trim, and replace parts as needed to fit the 0G skis. Do you sell a tip attachment that would work with the new 0gs? I thought it would be fun to utilize the ski's unique tip...

Also, I want to re glue the pomoca skins. There seem to be a lot of glue's on the market now. Do you have a suggestion?

Thanks a lot.

Answer from Jeff
 
Hi Luke,
There is a tip that will fit in that notch Attivo tip. It is designed as a Tip pull skin, but you can use with the tail pull on that ski.
Use the Pomoca glue on the Pomoca skins.

Answer from Luke S
 
brilliant. thanks a lot!

One follow up - does the attivo tip kit come as a pair? or do I need to buy two to do both skis?
12/10/2021
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Luke! These do come as a pair. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Josie
 
Hi there - I lost the clips off the tail of my skins when manoeuvring under fallen trees yesterday (I didn’t realise until it was too late). What’s my best option to order replacements for these with shipping to Australia? Pic of my skins with clips before I lost them!
7/26/2021
Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Josie, I'm sorry those tail clips disappeared! While we don't have that part (Camlock+ Tail Clips x2) in stock currently, I just set up an inventory notification for you, so you'll get an email as soon as we receive them. While this may not help much at the moment, I have heard of some folks adding a hammer rivet to the end of the tail strap to prevent runaway clips!

Question from Jason
 
Do you sell the fur individually?
3/22/2021
Answer from eric
 
Jason- I am assuming your plush on your skins is wearing out and you were looking for a replacement. Unfortunately, skins need to be replaced when the plush wears out.

Is this a glue for my skins, to iron on?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Steve! Definitely don't iron it on, but the tubed glue can be applied very easily with a credit card or scraper of sorts.

Question from toddball
 
How long are the tail straps? Have a 192cm ski and skins that were cut for a 186cm ski (and have one non-functional talk strap, which I will probably have to cut off); wondering if these will give me enough length. Thanks!
10/9/2018
Answer from toddball
 
And a related question: does the "Camlock + Tail Kit" cover a pair of skins, or just one? I.e. how many do I have to order for one pair of skis?
10/9/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Todd, from the taper at the end of the strap to the curve near the t-shaped mounting area these straps have 8cm of length.
10/9/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi toddball, the Camlock kit does have enough parts for a pair of skis. I'm skeptical it has the length you need if you're cutting off existing tail clips and trying to extend it another 6cm.
10/9/2018
Answer from toddball
 
Thanks jbo. Could you recommend a different talk clip kit that would work? Maybe the BD STS kit?
10/10/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi toddball, the only "extra long" tail clip kit I can think of is the now-discontinued Voile kit which you could put 15" Voile straps into. You may still be able to find one, but note the tail clips are designed for very rounded tails and don't fit well on flatter tails.

The BD kit isn't super long, but you may be able to get it to work depending on how far you are from the tails currently.

Question from Ginger
 
how do I use the transfer tape. do I iron off the old glue?
2/24/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Ginger, it's best to start with a clean layer of glue, so you want to at least do the paper-bag & iron method of removing the top layer of dirty glue. Then you can apply the tape. It comes with instructions as well!

This review is only for the "Camlock+ Tail Clip" -- and it came already affixed to some Colltex skins, so I can't speak to the ease of retrofit.

With that caveat aside though, Five Stars for:
- Cam attaches very easily and securely to the ski tail.
- Cam then allows for nice grab when ripping.
- Length adjustment is easy indoors when warm, less so when cold in the field, but given that the tail attachment is there for backup anyway, not like you need to be removing every little bit of excess slack on subsequent laps.

Overall, a great choice if you want the extra security of a tail attachment (combined with a basic bar-style tip attachment) yet want to buy skin material from a roll.
