The Kohla Freeride skin is a great choice for any skier as it offers an ideal balance of glide and climbing capabilities. Utilizing a Smart Glue adhesive, these skins have a terrifically strong bond that's easy to pull apart and reliable to reapply to your skis. The plush of the Freeride skin is made of 65% mohair and 35% nylon. For those who are more conscientious about eco-friendly products, the glue of this skin was made solvent-free. Kohla also made sure that these skins were made to hold up for long days, as they use a 100% waterproof Fiber Seal Technology, which keeps the skin from getting saturated on long days and predisposing the glue to failure. With an application range down to a "maybe I should have stayed home" -30C, this skin is hardy and can be reapplied easily, even on some of your coldest adventures. This skin is 135mm wide and is sold by the centimeter (be doubly sure to specify the quantity as the length of cm you'll need for both skis). The Kohla Freeride skin is a fantastic choice for those looking for a skin that works in a variety of snow types and conditions and has a nice balance of glide and grip.

Questions & Reviews
If width isnt an issue, the ski trab orange skins off the roll lasted considerably longer. I have had those for 3 seasons with heavy abuse and they still stick like new.
The ski side is another story. The glue will refuse to stick if it has smelled the slightest whiff of powder. Doesn't matter if you keep it inside your jacket on the way down, if it's a windy and powdery day, your skins will be done at the end of the second lap.
These are probably fine skins for a single big objective during spring skiing. If you want to lap something powdery, look elsewhere.
