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 membrane is waterproof, tear-resistant, and tends to hold its hairs in place.
  • Ever Dry 2.0 is a water-shedding treatment the 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 good hold.
  • Kits come with a trimmer that is much easier to use that the letter-opener style skin trimmers.
  • Comes with a skin bag for carrying your climbers and for long-term storage across seasons.
  • All kits come with tips attached except Universal, otherwise known as "Back Fix" in Pomoca-speak.
  • Universal Kits Only - Single size: cut to ski length, attach the tips, then trim the edges.

Teddy,

Thanks for recommending the S Glides for the Hannibal's. As stated in the User's Guide the skins came alive after 1,000 meters or so of ascent. Wicked fast.

Question from Jonathan Lyon
 
I am looking at the Pro S-Glide skins to use for my set up. This is all new to me. The ski I am using will be a 2018 "Fischer Ranger Ti 108's" in 188 length. The ski is measured by Fischer as 139-110-129.

Not really sure if I want the 140's and trim them down, or the 120's and have less coverage. Since I am new to this, I am thinking the 140's for maximal coverage. Would I be able to trim the tips narrower to break trail better, or is the trimmer designed to work along the ski and cut it to shape?
1/27/2019
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jonathan, you have a good handle on the options! 120 is likely sufficient for most skin tracks, but 140 won't slow you down much. The trimmer works along the edges so going skinnier in front would take a straight blade and a straight edge.

Question from DougD
 
I've had a pair of these skins for my Volkl Nunataqs (186cm, 139/107/123 mm) since 2014, the 120mm XL with the braided wire tip bails and rainbow tail straps. The combo has been great, almost as good as my old Dynafit Manaslu and Speed Skins, but...the braided wire tips are fraying and now the glue is coming off onto ski bases/balling up in places. I'm debating whether it's worth it to re-glue and replace tip parts, or get a new pair. Pomoca site says to get size 130mm XL for the Nunataq (2016, same dimensions as my 2014s), but I've never had issue with the 120mm width.

Thoughts?

Pro Tip: Cut up old skins make great drink coasters or floor protectors under furniture legs!
1/26/2019
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Doug! If you have been getting away with 120mm, stick with 120! No need to haul around extra material. I would strip the layer of glue that's balling off the skin and then re-evaluate. You could very likely just touch up the areas that are bad as needed with a tube of glue.

Good pro tip though. Never thought of that before!

Question from Vladimir K
 
I found this model not good enough in sliding forward. (I'm using it for expedition-style skiing in Adirondacks, Yukon, etc.
Which model would you recommend, so it would still prevent back-sliding good enough, but would be easier so ski forward?
1/11/2019
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Vladimir! Beyond this, a wide race skin is probably your best bet as far as glide goes.

Answer from Vladimir K
 
Thank you Trace. I ordered a wide race skin.

Question from Zach
 
Hi. I’m looking to order these for a pair of Head Kore 105’s in 180 length, and am debating between the 120 and 140 width. I’m leaning towards 120, as there is (slight) tip rocker, and there would only be a tiny bit of tip base showing, but would I be better off going 140 to ensure absolute coverage? Thank you.
12/11/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Zach! It sounds like you are well aware that rocker does not contribute to the amount of grip that a skin can offer, and because of that I think going with the 120mm is the better option. If you want to be extra safe and are okay with hauling around a little bit of extra skin material, the 140mm would work just fine!

Question from Melissa
 
Hi,

I just sent a question in about Colltex skins for Black crows atris birdie (122-108-136) 160cm length. Thought perhaps these Pomoca Pro Glides in the 140mm 155-170cm might work better?

Thanks,
Melissa

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Melissa! I just read your other question that you posted! I think you are correct, just purely based on dimensions alone I think these skins will be much better than the other set.

Question from ron k
 
hi,
I bought DPS Wailer A112, size 184cm....which size Pomona skin should I get?
7/31/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Ron! Okay, here are the specs of that ski: 141-112-128. Standard advice would have you go with a 140mm kit just to make sure that absolutely no base material is showing for maximum grip, but the awesome thing about the Wailer is that there is so much tip rocker (i.e. ski base that never touches the snow while skinning and therefore never contributes to skinning ability) that you can go with a narrower skin and do just fine. My choice is a 120mm x 175-190cm kit, but if you'd rather have full coverage then the 140mm is the better choice.

Question from Gavin W
 
Hi, I'm about to pull the trigger on the Salomon MTN Explore 95 in the 169 length. You guys suggested I get these Pomoca skins. Just wanted to confirm that the 120mm x 155-170cm length will work for this ski. Seems like it should, but wanted to double check! Thanks...
4/13/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Gavin, it should. If you add a note to your order, we're happy to pull 'em out and triple check. We can even trim 'em for you if you wish.

Question from Kyle
 
I purchased these last year for my Black Crows Navis Freebird 185cm. I purchased the "Large" (175-190cm) but found that the skins went back to almost the very end of the ski (a lot further back than what I need with the rockered tail). I finally cut the tail off, shortened it, and re-fashioned it using rivets. Not exactly ideal but I guess it works for now. I just picked up the Black Crows Orb in a 178cm and don't want to run into the same problem. If I order the "medium" can you tell me roughly how far from the rear of the ski the skin will end? (Maybe using a 178cm ski in your shop; I measured my skis to be true at exactly 178cm tip to tail). Ideally, looking at the rear rocker of the Orb, I would like the skin to stop 10cm from the rear. Thank you for the help, much appreciated!

Answer from Nate
 
Hi Kyle, I would recommend ordering the 165-180cm length for that ski.
3/10/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kyle, please remember you can tweak how the tail sits by swapping tip buckles. There are two widths in the box and more available.

Answer from Kyle B
 
Just to help anyone out for future reference. I actually had the "XL" (185-200cm) for a 185cm ski. Was a little bit longer than I would hope for so I cut it short. After order the "medium" (165-180cm) for a 178cm ski it ended up being 10cm too short for me. I wanted the skin to end roughly 10cm from the tail. So a "large" should be the correct fit. At this point I've found that the actual skin lengths (the actual skin material, not including tip or tail extension) are as follows: Medium (165-180): 155cm skin length; Large (175-190): 165cm; and the XL (185-200): 175cm. Hope this helps others with sizing.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kyle, thanks for the reference info! We also suggest using the Universal kits for getting the length to meet an exact specification.

Question from xavier
 
Hi, interested in the Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide skins for my pair of Elan Ibex 84 XLTs (170cm) for a fast and light backcountry set-up. Since my skis are notched in the front, I would replace the stock Pomoca square tip ring with a rubber bungie -- perhaps the Dynafit one. Given this customization, would it make sense to order 100cm X 175-190mm skin kit? Also, do you have the Dynafit Rubber Tips and Tip Plates in stock?


Alternatively, is there a pre-cut Dynafit Speedskins (Speed 90 176cm?) that, with minor trimming, could fit the Elan?
Thanks.
3/2/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Xavier, yes it makes sense to get a longer skin if you are chopping off the tip. We have the skin parts available here (noting it's easier to rivet the rubber tips versus sewing on the tip plate). If you want the swappable tip plate, it's easiest to buy a Dynafit skin and chop off the tails, re-adding some tail hooks.

Hands down the best skins I've used in 40 years of backcountry skiing. Took about 10 days for the skins to break in and the glide to get good. Great glue and backing makes these skins really great to use on a daily basis.

Question from Eric Schneider
 
I prefer straight skins. What size would you recommend for 175 cm BD Helio 105's?

thanks
2/27/2018
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Eric. By that notion you'd take the waist width and subtract about 3mm, so in a perfect world you'd need a 102mm wide skin. The 100mm is the closest to that, but you may end up with some side hilling issues because there'd be a lot of edge exposed. The 120mm is for sure my preferred width in this scenario though.

Hey Deling! Yeah, they're replaceable! Find them here. The loops included on the 120mm skins though are 95mm and 85mm wide.

Question from Mike
 
Would the pomoca climb pro s-glide 140mm 170mm be the size for my dynafit denali 176's (131-98-116) ?
I think they make a 130mm also but haven't found any and wondering if i could trim the 140 to 130.
any reason to go with the 100% mohairs if the s-glide glides as good ?
2/18/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mike, you'd need the ones that go up to 180mm for that ski. Either the 120mm or 140mm would work, with the 140 covering every square millimeter; you need to trim either. Not a huge argument for the mohair as compared to the S-Glide.

Question from Luke
 
I ski the BD Carbon Megawatt 178cm. The ski dimensions are 147-120-127. Would you recommend the 140mm x 175-190cm skins then?
1/25/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Luke, yeah that would net you max coverage. You could also get away with the shorter version if you want to show more base at the tails.

Question from Patrick N
 
I have Voile Vectors in 180 cm, would the 120 mm width offer enough coverage? I realize this should be an obvious question, just looking for some validation.
1/24/2018
Answer from Nate
 
Hi Patrick, 120mm will absolutely give you the coverage you are looking for. We typically suggest to our customers to buy a skin wide enough to cover the tail width of the ski completely.

Sizing your skin this way ensures that you will get the most grip possible without having excess coverage and reduced glide in the tip.

Question from Jake
 
I have a pair of 183cm Voile V6. Size recommendation?
10/30/2017
Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Jake, thanks for reaching out. The V6 fits between the two widths I'd recommend, so really you can go either way. The 120mm width will cover the tail, but leave a bit of base material exposed at the tip. With how much tip rocker is on the V6, this will actually come as a benefit when breaking trail in deep snow and have no adverse effects with grip on hard snow. The 140mm width will give you full edge to edge coverage along the entire ski if you feel like you need it. The 175-190cm length is what I'd be shooting for with your ski.

Question from Randall
 
Two questions?

Can you get a Dynafit Speedskin attachment to work on these skins? I noticed you sell the rubber end piece but it was unclear if it comes with the plastic piece that attaches to the skin.

Do you have them?

Thanks for the help.
9/9/2017
Answer from eric
 
Hi Randall, technically no, the rubber tips do not fit in the S-Glide tip system. However, you can cut off the whole system and then attach the rubber tips. The attachment plates for the rubber tips are currently out of stock, though it's typically easier to attach the rubber tips by simply folding the skin over the bar and riveting with skin rivets. The tip attachment plates need to be sewn on, but they do allow easy swapping of tips if one were to break.
