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 interface manageable. The resulting Hybrid glue system is easy to use and reliable. It’s also easy to maintain, since you can simply wash the skin with detergent to refresh the stickiness. Attached to the fancy adhesives is a mix of fibers that also blends multiple goals: grip, glide, and durability. This is achieved with Contour’s signature mohair woven with some rugged nylon. The Hybrid Mix skins offer the benefits of newer glue formulas with the reliability of traditional fare.

  • Hybrid glue technology offers good adhesion even in low temperatures.
  • Glue is easy to pull apart and can be washed to refresh the tack.
  • 70% mohair / 30% nylon blend is a good all-around fiber formula.
  • Attached adjustable tail clips fit securely on just about any ski out there.
  • A wire bail tip attachment keeps things simple and reliable.
  • Universal kits are 195cm which you cut to length and add the included tips.
  • 38mm and 50mm are great for Nordic skis or long flat approaches.
  • Included mesh skin savers preserve the glue for long-term storage.
  • Also includes a carry bag and a trimmer for customizing the side cut.

Question from Dan
 
In the pictures the tip and tail connectors are black. Is the rest of the skin different from the white version at all?
11/19/2019
Answer from Jeff M
 
Dan, if you are referring to the white Contour Race skins, those are 100% Mohair. These are Nylon/Mohair mix.

Question from Tom
 
I just bought new Fischer Ranger 102's at 184 cm. Their dimensions are 138-103-128. Which size Contour Hybrid mix skins should I buy?
11/4/2019
Answer from Jeff M
 
Tom, Ideally with least trim, somewhere half way in between the two sizes. If you want full coverage the 135mm is the way to go in the 177-184cm.

Question from Jon
 
I just got some Black Crows Navis Freebird from last year in 179 (133/102/118) so was looking for something around 125 width for skins...would you recommend the 115 or 135? And would the 169-176 be long enough or should I get the longer ones? Thanks so much!
11/3/2019
Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey Jon, the 115mm x 177-184cm would likely be a good choice. We tend to base skin width off of the ski’s tail because you don’t usually very much grip out at the tip of the ski.

Question from Travis
 
I would like to use these skins for on my Salomon X-Alps. How does the vario tip clip work? Can it be converted to use a rubber Dynafit tip clip?
10/22/2019
Answer from TSB
 
Hi Travis, the Vario Tip Clip is actually designed to swap between different sizes of wire loop that fits over the tip of the ski in traditional, tip-and-tail-clip skin style. To convert to race-style rubber or cord bungees at the tip of the ski, we recommend purchasing aftermarket tip-rip kits (e.g. the Colltex race set: https://skimo.co/colltex-race-tips) and doing a home modification to convert your skins; or you could have us build you a set with one of our rolls of skin material (e.g. the Kohla Mohair-Mix skin: https://skimo.co/kohla-mohair-mix).

Question from chad
 
Hi Guys- Any chance you have Contour Hybridmix for the Voile Hyper V8s I bought last week? They are 181cm. What do you guys think about the Contour 2-strip skin for wide skis? Are they a hassle to put on? Are they much lighter? How does grip compare? Thanks - Chad

Answer from eric
 
Chad- We dont have the correct size left for you but we do have the Atomic Hybrid multifit kits which would work, using the same Hybrid glue. The split skins are a hassle to deal with outside of your living room. Grip is going to be less with the splits as well.

Question from Tobias
 
Greetings. I have 176 long Hannibal skis. Will the 115 mm 161-168 cm model be long enough?

Thanks, Tobias

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Tobias, unfortunately not! You'll likely want the 169-176cm length.

Question from Paul L
 
Hi, I bought these Hybrid Mix skins from Skimo and they have been awesome. Was getting some glopping in new snow at around freezing last week. Figure some kind of wax will help this issue. I see the liquid wax and bar wax from contour. Can I assume the liquid is more a general purpose glide wax, and the bar is for glopping? Thanks for any guidance
4/10/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Paul, both waxes have their place. I like to use the liquid as a pre-treatment to help with glide and prevent saturation and the bar wax as a field treatment when glopping becomes a problem.
4/10/2018
Answer from Paul L
 
Thanks Nate..figured that might be the case...so i bought them both! And as far as how much to use...I suppose I'll just "know" by feel?
4/11/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Paul, I'd say to make sure you cover the skin thoroughly but not to excess.

Question from Paul Lohnes
 
I have a new pair of Fisher Hannibal 170 with SIDECUT 126-94-112. Which model do you suggest
8/15/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Paul! To reflect current stock, I'd go with the 120m x 169-176cm as that will give you full coverage tip to tail, but ideally the 110mm width would be the one I'd go with to optimize glide, especially while breaking trail.

Question from Kai
 
I've got some new skis coming; 131/99/111 178's. Can you suggest the correct size?
7/30/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kai, the 110 Universal kit will be a nice balance of grip and glide. Full coverage in the tail where it's most important but leaving some base exposed near the tip for glide.

Question from Paul L
 
Are these the most recent hybrid mix skin model? I have read there was some glue issues in prior versions. Thanks
5/12/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Paul, we got the majority of our skins replenished at the beginning of this season so whatever the latest version Contour has available in the US is what we've got on the shelves!
