Questions & Reviews
Make sure you get a skin within the length range and with enough width, and know you may need to do a little trimming.
The skins that come to the end will work just fine, you don't need to get shorter skins for the 180cm skis.
I think I understand that for Contour “Hybrid” skins - hybrid refers to the glue that Contour uses. Correct?
Meanwhile, on Elan’s tour skin web page there is a video that says Elan’s skins use a silicone base to adhere to the ski. Can you clear up this apparent discrepancy?
I guess maybe the video is suggesting that there’s silicone in the glue and they aren’t true silicone only glueless bases?
