Ready-to-go skins precut for Movement skis, complete with simple attachments and a cool apple logo. The Extreme Camlock skins cut for Alp Tracks and X-models are 100% mohair, while most of the rest of the skins (e.g. Vertex, Apex, Session) are mohair-mix. The Race Pro models are an even faster race formula. All are full coverage and carved to match the sidecut of the skis. The Movement skins feature a simple metal tip-bail and an adjustable Camlock tail clip for ease of operation. The glue is some of the strongest on the market, so you won't have a problem with the skins sticking to your skis. The Movement precut skins are a fast and reliable way to the top.

Questions & Reviews
Plush was fine. Glide and grip was adequate. That's the only reason I'm rating two stars instead of one.
The glue, especially, is so bad that I'm considering sending them to a shop to get torched and scraped clean, then apply a new coat of Gold Label myself. This is after 30 days of touring and diligent skin saver use. Meanwhile, a pair of BD MoMix skins I got sometime around the Financial Crisis are still going strong. In short... these are the only product I've ever gotten from SkimoCo that I would not recommend to another buyer. Back to Pomoca for me.
That said, the Coltext is fast and durable. As much as these skins annoy me, I'll probably but another set next year when these ones finally wear out.
Back to the glue, while sticky glue is a good thing typically this stuff is simply way too sticky and despite extreme care on my part, a years worth of debris is already embedded in my glue which causes me extreme feelings of self loathing for my carelessness. The glue simply does not strike the same balance as Pomoca between adhesion to your ski base and cohesion to itself when folded up. If I didn't know how much better this balance could be achieved perhaps I would not notice it as much, but I do and im sure people buying this high end skin already have used Pomoca as well. Additionally as a result of this insane cohesion I have to ski around with the skin savers and look like an idiot failing to apply them to my skins in the wind further pushing me into the dark spiral of depression that this winter has become.
Despite the depression and self flagellation resulting from the glue problems the mohair itself is pretty damn good. It took a little while to break in about 12 days but now is getting faster and faster, I will wax them soon and im sure they will be quite speedy. I have a pair of skins branded as marker that I believe is the same Coltex formula and they WERE by far the fastest non race skins I have used. I say "were" because they literally ripped in half lengthwise because they were so hopelessly stuck together due to their psychotic glue. Anyway hopefully the speed I gain due to the excellent mohair will make up for the time I spend digging in the snow for my tail clips or begging bystanders to help me pull my skins apart during transitions...
If Coltex can make the cam stay on the strap and tone down the glue for those of us not leaving our skins out in northern Canada overnight they will have a winner here. Until them I would not waste your money despite the advantages of them being precut for the insanely awesome Movement Session-X ski.
