Junior backcountry skiers have been flying under the radar of product developers; it’s been hard to get properly-sized equipment. When covering junior skis with climbing skins, parents would end up throwing half of the material in a standard kit in the garbage. Thankfully, product developers at Contour saw this issue unfold and decided it’s time for a kit with less material and associated price. The Kids skin is aimed at junior skiers on planks up to 95mm wide and 140cm long. The skin itself is a nice mohair-mix and it comes in a streamlined package for kids. Just cut to length and trim the sidecut, no other installation or hardware required. Thanks to Contour, getting a set of skins for your grom is now as easy as learning to pizza and French-fry.
- Metal tip-bracket is durable and riveted in place
- No tail-strap means less weight/volume, easier fitting, and a chance to teach your kids skin-glue management.
- Generous 95mm width and ample 125cm length out of the box.
- This glue is less-grippy (yet still adequatly grippy) than adult skins, helping younger and smaller arms to rip their own skins.
Questions & Reviews
These skins will be 125cm out of the box. However, an additional 15cm of exposed base at the very tail of the ski will not significantly affect grip, hence the range of sizes.
