Pomoca’s race formula with a twist. The Race Pro Grip is designed to be the secret weapon when the skin track freezes over and everybody starts to slip, or when the slope angle increases beyond all reason. Pomoca usually reserves their famous Grip treatment for touring skins, but when it’s applied to the fastest Race Pro formula you end up with the Race Pro Grip. While it may be slightly slower than other race skins in a head-to-head drag race, slipping on a skin-track is even less efficient. On icy slopes, the Race Pro Grip will have a clear advantage as you maintain stable footing and pull ahead. Outside of the obvious use in a race course, the Race Pro Grip is a great tool to bring along for your occasional foul-weathered objective, F.K.T. attempt, or for mountaineering when you’re following a precarious skin track.

  • Race Pro Grip is available exclusively in 62mm width for better grip in a straight cut race skin.
  • Pairs nicely with the Pomoca Cutting Pattern.

Question from Jeremy
 
I was wondering Will this fit a 161?

Hi Jeremy,

Since these are race skins, they do not have a tail attachment. At 160cm, these skins will pair well with a set of 161cm race skis. Depending on your desired grip, you may want to trim 10cm off the tail in order to reduce friction on the skin track while maintaining most of the traction.

The Race Pro Grip are my go-to skins for all my pre-work fitness laps at our local resort and springtime tours here in Missoula. At the local resort, the first face you climb is haneously steep and frequently icy, and a less than progressive uphill policy keeps tourers from being able to put in much of a switchbacking track--it mostly goes STFU. As such, I went with the Pro Grip over the Race Pro 2.0 and do not regret my decision. My skins maintain enough traction while my buddies are blowing out behind me and shouting some choice words. You can feel the stiffness of the mohair fibers--even slightly stiffer than my Pomoca Pro Climb S Glide I use with my beefier skis. These still skin fast! The tip attachments for notched skis are solid and nice to be able to customize with your own knots for adjusting a bit of length/security. And Pomoca glue is the best in the business, imo. As I take these into the backcountry a lot during spring missions with the same skinny skis, I ended up choosing to attach a Pomoca back fix to each skin to prioritize keeping them to my skis over speed of transitions. The lycra-clad skimo bros may say this defeats the point of race skins, but it's a proper tradeoff for me as I can still rip them from the tip without removing skis. If you face some dastardly steep and icy skinners like us, but still want to go fast (and have some pink in your touring look), then pick these skins!
