By comparison, nylon skins are like dragging around carpet samples. It's no wonder you had a bad experience in terms of traction if you're used to walking on brillo pads in addition to ski crampons. I've also had durability issues when using these skins on ice, but you have to recognize that they're race skins, not built for daily abuse. If you want to rejoin the enlightened and skin on mohair, try a more durable pomoca offering, like the climb pro glide which is pretty much the holy grail of daily ...

The Pomoca race skins are on worldcup podiums time and again for good reason. 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 ...

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.

Compared with pomoca race skins and coltex PDG race skins, these are an ok option. The tip plastic is a cute idea that needs some refinement: it doesn't get the weight of the skin below my other race skins, so it loses one start for unnecessary complexity. The plush is on the longer side, so it has marginally more traction and less glide than the pomoca/PDG. The second star disappears for the glue. It was initially ok during the first 5-10 uses-not amazing and more susceptible to failing when wet than pom...

Update: After skiing another two seasons on atomic ultimate 65s, I wouldn't buy the PDGs again. The PDG is much less forgiving, unnecessarily stiff, and harder to ski. The price might be better sometimes, but I'd pay the extra for the ultimate.
