Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide Skins

We’re not sure but we think the “S” stands for “Super”. The new Pomoca Super treatment on the old reliable Climb Pro Glide skins makes them even better at sliding. The friction coefficient is now more akin to racing formulas than to similar mohair-mix skins. Good sliding technique will be rewarded with up to 20% energy savings on an average climb, a figure extrapolated from recent lab tests. The Climb Pro S-Glides are 70% mohair, 30% nylon, and 100% fast. The skins feature the manageable Pomoca glue formula and easy-to-use tip brackets and tail clips. These are likely the default skin choice for interested ski tourers.

  • Safer Skin Light membrane is waterproof, tear-resistant, and tends to hold its hairs in place.
  • Ever Dry 2.0 is a water-shedding treatment that prevents potentially heavy water soakage.
  • S-Glide concoction is applied at the end to give you a lifelong friction-reducing stride.
  • ClickLock is a tip system that allows you to swap square brackets to match your ski tips.
  • Adjustable tail clips ride up and down a thick stretchy strap that is notched for a good hold.
  • Kits come with a trimmer that is much easier to use than the letter-opener style skin trimmers.
  • Includes a skin bag for carrying your climbers and for long-term storage across seasons.
  • Skins come with tips attached (except Universal length), otherwise known as "Back Fix" in Pomoca-speak.
  • Universal Kits - 185cm of material with tails attached; cut to ski length and attach the 85mm or 95mm wide tip buckles (both included) before trimming.
  • No Tips - A Universal Kit without the tip hardware...attach race bungees or your favorite touring tips.

Update 2020/21: The S-Glide skins are now made with thinner backing material and they have redesigned Click Lock tip attachments and tail hooks that enhance durability. The skins are about 40g lighter out of the box with the same grip and amazing glide. They now come in a zippered hard case.

Specifications
Weight per skin (with backing) 314g [120mm x 165-180]

Question from Josh
 
Can these bit fit with Dynafit style attachments at tip and tail?
4/8/2022
Answer from Jeff
 
Josh, Short answer, no.
The ClickLock tip can accept a Dynafit rubber tip, but the attached tail strap is fixed and the skin would be too short to cut it off and add a fixed tail clip.
If you want to build a Dynafit style skin, it is best to custom build it, rather than start with a Trim to Fit skin. You can email us at help@skimo.co for details!

I've had these skins (the 21' update version) for just over a year now and have put about 200k vert on them in that time (used with Volkl Rise High 88s). I have used them in waist deep pow, on glaciers, in spring corn, wind scoured ridge tops and everything in between.

Three things really stand out for me; glide, weight and size.

The things can slide. They glide so well that you can actually lock your heel down and ski short pitches with the skins still on and not have it be one of the worst skiing experiences of your life. On long approaches over frozen lakes and the like, I feel almost like a proper nordic skier, driving off my rear foot and never coming to a rest, full glide, no brakes.

The weight? Not quite "race" skin light but still, really good. I weighed them when I first got them, did some math and compared them to some BCA hybrid skins and figured out that per sq/cm, they were significantly lighter, in the range of 20%.

Size. These pack down really small. I've found I can easily stuff them into my pants pockets when skiing jacket free on warm days. I really appreciate a skin that is small enough I just don't think about it on the way down if it's in my jacket.

The one big issue is the tail clip. It sucks, we all know it but it's a super easy fix. I got a metal U-clip (used for attaching automobile trim), sized the tail and then put the clip around the rubber so it sits flush with the tail clip. This prevents the rubber from pulling through, keeps a constant tension and if I ever need to remove it, easy to pop it off.

Bottom line, this is a perfect skin for bigger days/long approaches. If you only care about grip and going up steep skinners, maybe try something that's a bit more climb focused.

Question from Andrew
 
Do the tip and tail attachment that come with these work on splitboards? If not, what's the right Pomoca skin to get that works with one? I'd be fine with buying by the cm and getting tip/tail attachments separately. thanks!

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Andrew, not really! But Pomoca also makes splitboard skins with better attachments. Check out the Climb 2s and Free Pros.

Out of the 4 skins I've owned (BD Mix, BD Nylon, Ski Trab WC, and now the Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide) these are my favorite. I've had zero problems with them after 30+ days on them this season. Great mix of traction and glide. They come off the skis easily when it's time to rip. I run them with Dynafit rubber tips and the tail clips cut off. Highly recommend.

For the price I really want to love these, but so far they are a disappointment. First time out in cold new snow had some of the worst glopping I've ever seen. Skin appeared dry but snow kept sticking. Wife was on 5 year old Ascensions with bad glue and no glop at all.

2nd and 3rd trip no glop, but struggled to grip in track while wife on the old skins motored along.

As others have said, tail attachment sucks, too wide for tail notch, will probably trim that. Weight, packability, and glide are great, but if you need to stick in a steep track and ski fresh snow they aren't so great. Glue seems ok, but I'm now sceptical on how it will hold up.

Overall not impressed for the price. Probably return to BD skins, hate the weight, but hate sliding backwards worse.

Hi - I ski the Moment Bella 2020

The Pomoca site suggests Skin Size
130mm-S, but I do not see that size available anywhere. Is there another size that would work for that ski?
Thanks so much!

Hi Ann,

Based on your ski dimension, I would go with the 140mm x 155-170cm size. If you have further questions on skins, feel free to reach out to us at help@skimo.co!

Question from Jen
 
Do the tip clips that come installed on these allow for the swap to notch tip connector? Or is that a separate thing?
12/19/2021
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jen, you're on the right track, it's designed to work that way. You have to remove a bit of semi-breakaway plastic to enable the Z hook connector to be inserted.

These are (in my opinion) the best skins out there. The glue is the best in the business - they stick to your skis, but are still easy to tear apart from each other when stored glue-to-glue. The plush is also some of the best around, with really good glide for how grippy the skins are.

The only thing stopping these from getting 5 stars in my books is the tip and tail attachment hardware. The tip is fine (but I prefer a race style bungee, so replaced it with that) but the tail clip sucks... It comes off relatively easily and breaks easily. I replaced mine with a G3 tail clip, which greatly improves the functionality. I wish Pomoca would include a better tail clip with these.

Question from Chris B
 
What size would you recommend for a 176cm DPS Wailer 99 (125-99-111)? The Pomoca website suggests 120mm in size L, but it looks like size M would also work. Thanks in advance!
11/16/2021
Answer from Julieana
 
Hey Chris,
Your intuition is spot on, size M (167-180cm) in a 120mm width is definitely the way to go for that ski!

I do absolutely love the weight, glue and grip/glide balance of these skins. Certainly the most versatile skin in the game in my opinion. The only downside i've experience with them after extensive use last season is that the Click Lock attachments for the tips (the seeming updated 20/21 versions) are not very durable and prone to breaking and the cover becoming lost. One of mine snapped off along with the bending of the tip attachment bar during what felt like a normal skin rip maybe 30 days in. As such, I ended up replacing the tip attachments on both skins with the BD Ultralight Tip Loop kit. This has improved the durability of the skin for good for myself, it would appear. Consider this when buying this skin!

I've used a lot of different skins in 23 years of bc skiing. The Climb Pro S-Glides are my favorite so far. Great glue, good balance of grip and slide, don't soak up much water.
The Freerides pack smaller, if you use huge skis. Any brand's race model might glide better....but if you're generally skinning for powder turns and/or "free touring" these are great.

except, I don't like the Pomoca trim tool. It doesn't offset enough. I still use the G3 offset trim tool, it's the best.

I had the same issue with the tool, not as much offset as I wanted.

Question from Molly
 
Hello!
I’m interested in these skins for my 154 cm voile hyperchargers. Of course, it would be nice to have some versatility in case I change skis to a more normal length for me (which is usually in the low 160s).
So, could I use the small size skin (155-170) or is the XS really the best option? I wish I wasn’t right at these end ranges!

Oh and secondarily, would you go Climb Pro S-Glide or Free Pro?

Thanks so much!
10/12/2021
Answer from Julieana
 
Hey Molly,
I just pulled a set to see if the small might work for you and unfortunately it looks like it's just a tad too long for that Voile Hypercharger. As for which skin to go with, I personally love the packability of the Free Pro, as long as you're not planning to skin over too many obstacles that one is a great choice. However, if durability is key for you, the Climb Pro S-Glide will definitely hold up to a little bit more abuse.

Question from Akhil
 
I have got a pair of Rossignol Soul 7 HD @ 172cm, 136 - 106 - 126
Which one would you suggest 120mm × 165-180 or 140mm × 165-180
The Pomoca website suggests 130mm × 165-180
10/7/2021
Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Akhil

We typically size skins based on the tail width of skis, as very little traction comes from the tip of your ski, especially on a rockered ski like the Soul 7. I would recommend the 120mm width of Climb Pro S-Glide, as you will have full coverage underfoot, as well as mostly full coverage in the tail with 1mm of base material visible on each side. If you want the assurance of full coverage with the accompanied weight penalty, go for the 140mm!

Question from Deling R
 
I'm looking for a replacement for a pair of Blizzard Zero G 85, 171cm. Would you recommend 100mm, 165-180cm? Thanks.
9/27/2021
Answer from Will M
 
Hey Deling,

Great question, I think the 100mm would be a precise fit as the tail of the ski measures in at 99.5mm. If that's a bit too close for comfort, then I'd suggest going for the 120mm as that'll provide a bit more wiggle room for the cutting of the skin.
9/27/2021
Answer from Deling R
 
Thanks! Since it’s a lightweight setup, I will go with 100mm and reduce the coverage in the front.

Question from Evan
 
I did a dry fit of the Large (175-190) on a 189cm ski and I am at max adjustment length on the tail with little or nothing to grab (can't imagine this being easy with mittens on)
Is this how the tail is supposed to be with a 189ski for a Large Pomoca?
Also, this ski does not have a flat section for the clip and it does not grab well.
I live in SLC and can bring this by, wondering if maybe this is a medium? or something is wrong?
6/8/2021
Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Evan, it does seem like you are at the latter end of the adjustment range for the large skin size. For future reference, it is usually a bit nicer to be in the middle of the adjustment range so in that case, the XL size would have been more ideal. Unfortunately, not all ski tails like to play nice with certain skin attachment systems but with proper tightening of the skin, it should stay on the tail bar reasonably well.
6/8/2021
Answer from Evan B
 
Skins I've used in the past are usable at the ranges they specify (G3 and Atomic)
I guess it was foolish to think the ski lengths they recommend result in good configurations?
Seems a bit backward. Is there a good way to lengthen the strap?
I purchased this from SkiMo, and haven't cut them, any logic to waiting for XL to come in stock and swapping?
6/8/2021
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Evan, a good way to tweak the tail length is to swap the tip buckles. A wider buckle will let the skin sit further back on the ski, extending its reach. This is why Pomoca includes two sizes in some of their kits, and you can also buy them separately. Note Contour has some even wider ones (115mm) for oversize planks.

Question from Giacomo
 
Hi!
I would like to buy this skin in order to use them on icy and steep terrain, but mainly on icy spring conditions. Are they the right chiose? I have 2 pair of race skis and I know it could seem strange but I want use this skin with my race ski since race skins are not so good when it's icy. Is it possible to fit the skins on the following ski? Atomic Backland UL 65 - 161 CM 93/65/78.5
Dynafit PDG - 161 CM 99/65/88

THANKSSSSS
2/23/2021
Answer from Tristan M
 
Hi Giacomo,

As a mohair-mix skin, the Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide will definitely be a step up in grip from a race skin. However, the trim to fit version does not come with a tip and tail attachment system that makes sense for a race ski. I would recommend doing a custom build using Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide Per CM, and Pomoca Top Fix Race Tips as an attachment. If you have any further questions, reach out to us at help@skimo.co

I love the carpet and glue on these skins. They pack down small, are light, have fantastic glide, and the glue is great.

I do not like the attachment points. Without fail my partner and I will always deal with at least one, usually multiple, moments where the tail clip comes off on the skin track. Not the end of the world, but get annoying. I also don't enjoy how the tip attachment isn't fixed and slides side-to-side. Maybe there's a reason for this? I haven't figured it out and it just adds times having to adjust the attachment to be centered.

In the end, the attachment point issues don't detract enough to make these skins lose their place at the top of the podium among the competition. Just some things I think could be improved

Reply from jbo
 
Hi Jack, thanks for the feedback! Do you have twin tip skis by any chance? In that case, you can get (when in stock) the Twin Tip tail hooks to improve hold. The stock tail clip works best with flatter tails.
