Also known as the Pomoca Climb Pro, these 100% mohair skins give you natural glide. However, unlike untreated mohair that can get waterlogged, the Pomocas feature an EverDry treatment that helps prevent glomming and a waterproof membrane to keep moisture off your glue. Think of it as modern mohair. Also modern is the ready2Climb attachment set with a replaceable tip buckle (two sizes included, more available) and adjustable tail clip.

  • Safer Skin Light moisture barrier keeps snow melt from wrecking the stickiness of the glue.
  • Tip buckle can be swapped within a range of 66mm to 105mm, fitting most skis out there.
  • Back Fix adjustable tail straps let you control the tension before or after you put on your skins.
  • Standard Pomoca Ever Dry anti-glopping treatment covers the length of the skin.
  • Comes with a cutter that perfectly exposes 2mm of edge in one go.

Update 2020/21: The skins are now made with a thinner and lighter backing material and feature redesigned Click Lock attachments and tail hooks that are more robust. They also come in a new zippered storage case.

Questions & Reviews

Question from jan

1- I have these skins for my current skis (ZeroG 95/178) but I am upgrading my skis to Backland 95/177... and was hoping I can keep the skins. Do you think i can carry them over without a problem?

2- The plastic front of one of the skins partially broke. it can still hold the "metal loop" that goes around the tip of the ski, but it has less strength now. It is an older skin that had this part stitched to it. I wonder if there is a replacement bit. They still work well, and I didnt want to throw them away. Any suggestions?
Answer from Emmett I

The Backland is a bit wider at the tail than the Zero G, so you'd have a bit more edge exposed. Probably not enough to cause noticeable issues, but hard to say without trying.

We do have skin parts for Pomoca here, the Click Lock kit includes the tip piece and a new bracket. You will need to remove the stitches (or cut the whole tip off if you have enough room on the tail strap) and rivet the new kit on.

These are my big ski skins, as a 102 is my widest regular touring rig. I have always preferred Pomocas but this is my first pure mohair in any skin. They are a bit burlier than their siblings like the climb 2.0, but do climb better, especially in the truly terrible conditions the northeast can generate better than most. The glue is a good balance of sticky but manageable. I think complaints about the tip and tail are a bit of a mystery, but the tail is not as good as the dedicated Trab or Dynafit attachments, which seem to me to be the best (especially the Trab for the Magico). I think that the mohair seems more durable but I rarely wear out skins, except through age. It’s a heavier setup, and pack bulkier than others, but for what I have them on they are perfect (Navis Freebirds). I also like the green, if after the fact. As per Kermit it’s not easy being green
Reply from thomc
Update: I was touring in the Wasatch December 2023 and my companions were glopping up a storm. One had similar vintage (recent) Pomocas, but the Pro S-Glides; the other had some very vintage (old) Ascension (I think.) Both were having a lot of snow sticking to skins in the above freezing temps. I don't know what it was about these mohair pups, but they had zero issues. Perhaps the DWR that they impregnate skins with gets inside the natural fibers better, I have no idea, but these were the best game in town for above freezing older snowpack touring.

Question from Mike
I am onto my second pair of Pomoca Pro S glide. After about 50 days, I have glue residue on the bottom of my skis. Pomoca gave me a free pair, but the exact same thing is happening to this pair . . . again after 50 days or so. I don't know if it's poor batch of glue or operator failure??

I separate and dry for an hour, sometimes longer. Then fold up glue to glue an hang until my next tour. I often leave me skis in the van if I am touring multiple days in a row. I don t know if any of this is the cause of the residue on the bottom of my skis??

Suggestions or thoughts?
Answer from jbo
Hi Mike, like most skin glues, these are allergic to heat and UV light. Van in the spring/summer could cause that but should be fine in the winter. You should also keep your skis waxed (or at least not too dry) to help avoid glue transfer.

Sarah H (downright abused product)
I bought these to replace some very abused G3s. I had been hearing from friends for a while during transitions that I should give up the G3s (they had just run their course) and get some Pomocas, but I couldn't have understood the difference until I actually pulled the trigger! I never have trouble with these not sticking because they got a little snow on them, but on the flip side, they don't overly stick to their skin savers or my ski bases, the front bar loop is very secure (despite that my skis are quite a bit wider than advised, I think skis are 126-ish at the tips), and I love the back clip. I actually hadn't had a pair of skins with tail clips before, and I'm obsessed with that security. Now that I've got the hang of it, it takes me 10 extra seconds to clip in the tail and while it is very hard to move the slider to adjust the length, now I just slip the tail clip on from the side around to the back where it stretches tight, so I almost never have to adjust it anyway. Glide/grip performance feels the same to me as other skins.

Question from Karl
For skis 178 cm long, 165-180 cm or 175-190 cm skins? Oh, the first world problems!
Answer from Brett S
Hey Karl, either will work. If you want better glide (less material), go shorter. If you want better grip (more material), go with the longer option.

Question from thomc
The somewhat cryptic pictogram directions seem to indicate you should toss the plastic backing in the bin after receiving your skins. I am pretty spotty in my use of skin backing, but what's your view (apologies if this was covered elsewhere - just direct me.)
Answer from Julieana
Thanks for reaching out, Thom. The backing on these particular skins should go in the trash as they can collect dust and debris which you could then transfer to your skin. If you want to use something for storing over the summer you could purchase the Black Diamond Cheat Sheets found here. Especially with Pomoca skins, which are quite easy to rip apart, I generally just stick my skins together. For long-term storage, I also find that storing them in a cool place is more helpful in preserving the glue than using a skin saver or cheat sheet.

Question from Barry Wicks
How do these compare to the free pro 2.0 in terms of rolled up size? I’m hoping they pack up as small. Thanks hands!
Answer from Zak M
Hey Barry, the Free Pro 2.0 skins have a thinner backing material than the Pomoca Mohair and will pack down a fair amount smaller. The new Climb Pro Mohair skins will still pack down to a reasonable size and are a great set of skins.

Question from Mol
I’m hearing mixed recommendations.

For skis that are 134-107-117 would you suggest the 120 or 140’s? Do you go for absolute full coverage (140 option) or use the tail width (120 option).
Answer from jbo
Hi Mol, good question! I generally feel that covering your tail width is sufficient since you don't get much grip from your tips and it's kinda sucky to have overhanging material/glue when folding your skins in half. That said, if you're on a very steep and icy sidehill struggling for that last ounce of grip on wide skis (which make steep, icy side-hilling harder), there's a small chance you take my name in vain.

Of course, I'll just respond that you should have had skinnier skis in that situation ;)

JC Prenner (downright abused product)
Worst design of a back clip to adjust skin in the backcountry . What is Pomoca thinking!!! The white tab is nearly impossible to lengthen. Also when the white tab breaks , since it is made of plastic. No replacement is available. Really a bad design for the backcountry.
Reply from jbo
Hi JC, it definitely takes a bit of force to move the clip backwards, but that's probably a good thing so it doesn't slip. FYI the clip was redesigned for 20/21, including the use a different plastic. We also have replacements here.

Question from Chris Cawley
Quite unfortunately I seem to have put a 1 cm tear in the edge of one of my Pomoca Mohair skins. Do you guys have any experience repairing torn climbing skins of this or any other variety? Couple stitches with a speedy stitcher? Adhesive patch? Asphalt shingles?
Answer from eric
Chris- A few stitches will on the tear will fix that right up. I would not use anything else.

Question from Brad
I would like to purchase your Pomoca Climb Pro. Just want to be sure that the tip buckle will mount to my Bent Chetler 120 (under foot) skis.
Answer from Jeff
Brad, the 140mm skin comes with the widest 105mm buckle. Looking at the tip of the Bent Chetler, it looks like it should be wide enough.

Nate (downright abused product)
Good skins that are durable, provide decent traction, decent glide when broken-in, have decent glue, and are decently compact when stowed. I also like that they are green. After 60+ days of use in all conditions/temps, they are still in excellent shape and the glue is as good as it was new.

Fitting is very quick and easy with the supplied edge trimming tool and the supplied storage bag is a nice touch.

andrew d (downright abused product)
I've been using these for all my "big" skis and they have been great. The glide is comparable to other full mohair skins, they are durable, and climb well. I have about 40 days on a pair that have been used in every condition imaginable, including skinning rocks and ice, and they show no signs of appreciable wear. My only pseudo complaint is that the glue isn't great but I have yet to have a skin failure so maybe that's in my head. Anyway, it's nothing a little extra gold label couldn't solve. I'll definitely buy them again.

Question from Steve Sauve
Would these skins be a decent choice for general backcountry skiing or more geared toward racing? And, advice on best ice axe length. Again, general backcountry skiing, mostly needed for protection on steep boot packs. 6'1" tall. Thanks, Steve
Answer from jbo
Hi Steve, these are trim-to-fit touring skins with proper tip and tail clips (race skins are typically skinny, parallel, and only have tip bungees). These are faster than nylon skins, with a touch less grip and durability. I'm the same height as you and prefer 50" ice axes since they plunge deep enough and fit on a pack better.
