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.

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

Question from Erik
I have a pair if Atomic backland 107s in a 182 length(137-107-124). I am kind of torn between the 120 and the 140 version of this skin. Feels like the ideal would be 130 but can't find it anywhere. What would you recommend?
Answer from jbo
Hi Erik, there are no 130s in these parts. 120mm would be plenty in my mind, but you can always trim down a bigger skin.

Question from Erin Newton
Looking for skin for Alaska backcountry skiing. Light powder to heavy wet to crud all types of snow. I have Rossignol Blackops 98 131-98-121 172cm
Answer from jbo
Hi Erin, this is the skin! The 120 x 165-180 would be sufficient but go up to 140 if you want max coverage for every edge when climbing.

Question from Chuck
Which width will work best for Voile Hyper V8 171 cm?
Answer from jbo
Hi Chuck, the 140s are going to be best for the V8s! For what it's worth, I cut my skins twice for that ski...put them on backwards and trimmed a second time to make them symmetric and take up less jacket space. Still climbs just fine in pow.
Answer from jbo
Follow up, if you do a symmetric cut or like less material like me, you can get by with the 120s in the 171, they are only 120 at the tail.

Good skins but the attachment hardware is plastic and will break after a season or sooner. I would prefer metal attachments for a few extra grams.

Question from Ben Aase
Hi there. I’m looking at a pair of these for some Ski Logik Rock Stars in a 178cm length. Specs are 142/117/141. I was thinking I’d order the 140mm in the 175-190 length.

I also have a Ski Logik Powderball 188cm (144-112-133) but suspect I need a second pair given the narrower tail if I cut these for the Rock Stars.

Make sense to you?

Thank you!

Answer from jbo
Hi Ben, that's right for the Rock Star sizing. It's possible you could cut the skins for the Powderballs and still use them for the Rock Stars; they wouldn't be perfectly dialed but still plenty of coverage for climbing powder (might have to use a bit more pole on tricky spots). We are always mix and matching skins around here on demo skis and I think most folks would be surprised what you can get away with for coverage and still make it up the hill, especially with good skinning technique.
Answer from Calvin E
Yeah, some of my skins are just straight untrimmed strips, about ski waist width. They seem to work just fine for me. I've been on a few hair-raising steep traverses where you don't even get the whole width of ski flat, and haven't had any more trouble than my buddies with wall to wall skins.

Question from Jim Ianora
I have a pair of Salomon MTN 95, 177cm.

Which skin should I order?

Answer from Patrick C

Grab a set of the 120mm 165-180cm skins would be my suggestion. A little less coverage on the tail won't affect grip, but can add a touch of glide!

Question from Claire
My suggested size is 130 mm. My skis are 164 cm (131 - 106 - 122). Wondering what size is recommended, thank you!
Answer from Cole P
Hey Claire, we usually use the tail width as a quick size guide. So a 122mm tail I would recommend the 120mm x 155-170cm.

John K (downright abused product)
These are the best skins you can get on the market right now. The glue is better than G3 skins, the mohair mix glides better than the BD skins, and packs up super well.

Used these skins from midwinter pow to hardpack snow/ice. Based in the PNW, so the warmer temps and wet snow did saturate these skins in the late spring, but they've held up in every condition otherwise. Glopped up once, but problem went away after using skin wax.

I've never had a problem with the tail clip unlike many others here, but I did have to file a notch in the tail of my skis so that the tail clips didn't slip off laterally. The bar up at the tips are bent, and the "PO MO CA" panel did come off, but these are cosmetic issues. Also, the cutter isn't good enough for more than one use I've found.

Overall, I love these skins and would buy them again. Maybe I'll go with the pink race ones for fatter skis for better packability, but I would be just as happy with these ones too.

Question from Josh
Can these bit fit with Dynafit style attachments at tip and tail?
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 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.

Nate (used product regularly)
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.

Question from svcci
my wife has Helio 105's......131-105-118 that are 164 long....what size skin??
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for reaching out, Svcci! I'd go with the "120mm x 155-170cm" option. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
Answer this question:

Allen H (used product a few times)
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.

Question from Ann
Hi - I ski the Moment Bella 2020
162 cm
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!
Answer from Tristan M
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!

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?
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.

Eddy v (used product regularly)
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!
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!
Answer from Chris B
Thanks for the quick response!
Answer this question:

Mason D (downright abused product)
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!

Peter (downright abused product)
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.
Reply from Tjaard B
I had the same issue with the tool, not as much offset as I wanted.
