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.

Questions & Reviews
Thanks for being awesome.
Just curious, do all Pomoca Race Pro 2.0 Skins smell like ladies perfume or was that something unique to mine? I bought them for my wife for Christmas and she smelled them, not knowing they were in her stocking and thought I had been cheating on her :) They've been off-gasing outside for days but we're going to have to get rid of the case because of the wreak of cheap perfume...ideas?
Also, do you have tip notches in your Zero G 85? If so, maybe you could build some custom race skins using race tips and a wider skin material like 85mm Pomoca Race Pro 2.0!
If you're looking for cold snow performance look to the Contours and Colltex PDGs
The only place I have seen these struggle is on hardpack with a light dusting of new snow. When skinning in these conditions the skins will slip all over the place if your technique gets sloppy. Stay balanced and they'll keep gripping.
The plastic grip tip could be better. I have already pulled one off though it does not affect performance it does leave two little bungie ends out flapping around. A nylon loop would be more durable.
A touch up of glue should help fix the problem. We are out of Pomoca Glue Tubes at the moment, but are ordering some here shortly. Be sure to check the Pomoca Skin Parts listing in the next week or so.
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?
Should I go with 59 mm or 62 mm? What should be the criteria ?
-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.
-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.
