Pomoca is only contented by having the fastest skins on the market. The Race Pro 2.0 formula has been competition and lab tested for several years with the singular goal of maximizing glide. This is the skin that Kilian Jornet has been winning race after race on in Europe. Now available for the rest of us, the Race 2.0 will shine on long climbs and traverses where extra resistance translates into lost energy. Soon to monopolize podiums around the world, the new pink skins from Pomoca are its best yet.

  • Robust Top Fix race attachment is a quick-rip and quick-apply bungee cord system.
  • Race Pro 2.0 is the glidey-est Pomoca formula yet with a low coefficient of friction.
  • Safer Skin Light is a tear-resistant, waterproof backing that is 12% lighter than others.
  • Every Dry 2.0 is an advanced hydrophobic treatment that is safer for the environment.
  • Glide Pro is a bonus fiber treatment that prevents hateful glopping and improves glide.
  • Fitted bag included so you don’t soil the precious glue between training and racing.

I have used my pair of Race Pro 2.0 skins about 10 days now. So far I have been very happy with the glide. Comparing against my Race Pro 1.0 skins are hard given the new/old skin challenge you have with any brand of skins. I will say that these continue the Pomoca trend of being very fast in wet, glazing snow and slower in cold, aggressive new snow. In the cold temps, the Colltex still provide better glide in head to head comparisons. Overall, a great race skin that will be very fast when you have warmer snow temps.

Question from Josh
 
Does the 155 length pomoca skin fit the 160cm Pierra Menta Race Carbon?

Question from dan
 
I have a pair of Atomic Ultimate 65 skis and also have Atomic backland UL skins in 65 mm width for these skis. The skins work well for climbing, but I'm looking for a second pair of skins that I would use exclusively for long stretches of flat terrain that I will encounter in the Grand Traverse race. I'm looking for a skin with much less kick but much more glide for the flats.

Would you recommend this skin or the Colltex pdg and should I get full width underfoot (65mm) or should I go with something thinner like 60mm underfoot to get more glide?

thanks

Hi Dan, width is the key. Look to the 59mm Pomoca or the 60mm PDG for the best glide. You can get aggressive with the length cut as well if you want to squeeze even more glide out of 'em. The PDGs test better in cold snow while the Pomocas move faster as it warms.

Question from Ben
 
Hi, I have a paire of Pierra Menta Race Carbon (spec : 65 mm: 160 cm)
Should I go with 59 mm or 62 mm? What should be the criteria ?


Thanks

Hi Ben, either would fit the ski, it's a question of more grip (62) or more glide (59).

I don't have the 2.0 version yet but the previous model (which looks almost identical) has been very good to me. Great glide and grip. The glue is not the best in cold dry Canadian powder but overall works well.

The Pomoca race skins are on worldcup podiums time and again for good reason. Though my experience is with the pomoca 1.0s and they've since been upgraded, I expect nothing but improvement. In comparison to coltex PDG race skins and atomic ultimate race skins, these are the winner.

Pros:
-Untouchable glide. Laughable really. Add some skin wax and you're on cloud 9.
-Traction, for how well they glide, is really impressive. They require good technique in challenging conditions, as any race skin does, but their low weight and great glide don't translate into reduced grip.
-Water repellent: more so than coltex and atomic, the treatment on the plush is good at holding off water when the conditions get rough. Not perfect, but good by comparison.
-Glue: The glue layer is thin thin thin but sticks like a boss and is fairly resistant to total failure in wet conditions.

Cons:
-Durability is not great in icy conditions, tending to shed plush underfoot a bit faster than the coltex do.
-Native tip attachment: not my favorite. Very secure most of the time, almost too secure. I don't trust the black plastic tab and prefer to have a tip loop made of knotted cord, which will never fail.
