Ski Trab uses a unique Attivo fixing system to attach skins quickly and securely to its skis. Designed to be pulled with one hand from either the tip or tail, the skin fix consists of a metal clasp with a pull tab (tip) and a plastic knob (tail) that fit perfectly in custom notches on Ski Trab skis. The skins come in two flavors, mohair and mohair mix. The mohair mix skins are an orange 65/35 blend of mohair and nylon that match up well with Trab's wood core skis: Sintesi, Libero, Altavia, Altavia Carbon, Altavia Light, Stelvio, Gavia, and Maximo. The 100% mohair flavor of skin is Ski Trab branded and made for optimum glide, and pair well with the ultralight aramid core skis: Maestro, Maestro.2, Magico, Magico.2, and Mistico. Best of all, they are cut specifically for each model and length of Trab ski so you don't have to worry about finding the right size skin and trimming it to reveal just the right amount of edge. See the chart below to determine which skin will fit your ski.

Example: The 171cm Mistico skin will be 100% mohair, and will also fit the Maximo ski of the same length. A 178cm Sintesi skin will be the mohair-mix material, and will also fit a 178cm Maestro.

Approximate Ski Width 65%/35% Mix Skins 100% Mohair Skins
75-78mm Sintesi / Libero Maestro, Maestro.2
82-87mm Altavia, Gavia / Stelvio 85 Magico, Magico.2
88-94mm Maximo Mistico

Update 2019/20: Ski Trab added factory cut skins for the updated Maestro.2 and Magico.2. These skins will not fit older Maestro and Magico skis due to the Attivo.2 system, which made the notch between the swallowtail on the Maestro.2 and Magico.2 narrower than the tail notch found on the older versions of those skis. In addition to these attachment discrepancies, the updated Maestro.2 and Magico.2 measure ~2cm longer than their older versions of the same marketed length, making the new skins too long for the original skis.

Update 2020/21: The new Stelvio and Gavia skis use the ".2" system like the Magico.2.

Question from Eric S
 
Are the mohair mix 65/35 skins better grip (but less glide)?
5/22/2021
Answer from Jeffrey
 
Hi Eric, That is a general thought. I have used both and I feel the difference in grip is minimal. The full Mohair does noticeably glide better.

Question from Sam K
 
Thanks. Is there a particular pre cut skin that would work off the shelf?
4/14/2021
Answer from Jeffrey
 
Hey Sam, Afraid not. That ski used a different tip attachment and these precut skins have no adjustment for length, so would have to be exactly the same length ski. Also, the width of that ski is halfway in between the current models, so you would have to trim it anyways. Will's idea of a race-style skin is good. Or this trim to fit skin will work, 115mm X 161-168cm. Contour Hybrid

I am looking for skins for Ski Trab Piuma Freerando duos (164 I think). Is there a particular skin I should purchase?

Thanks,

Answer from Not Will McD
 
Hey Sam, those pre-cut Ski Trab skins will not work with that tip on the Freerando. You would want to choose from one of our trim to fit options or you could always get some skin material off the roll to use with a race tip attachment.

The Attivo system is awesome! Tip rip is super easy, the skins hold in place, and the pow laps keep going all day long.

I’ve been thoroughly impressed by the mohair mix (used for Stelvio 85’s)—pretty good glide and ample grip on the steeper sections of skin track.

I’ve also been impressed by how well these repel water—I’ve had long days with multiple laps as well as soggy spring afternoons that I would have thought would saturate the skins, but I haven’t hardly noticed the skins retaining any moisture at all.

Bottom line...If you’re getting a pair of Ski Trab skis (which you should) go for the match made in heaven and get the pre cut skins.

Tip rip is the way to go. No longer do I have to contort myself into impossible shapes requiring days of yoga to straighten myself back out. Oh and the glue grips when it should and lets go at just the right time. The mohair mix has no downsides, grips and glides like a dream, and has me running laps around my old nylons.

I have the Super Maximo 178 cm skis from La Sportiva. I see the Maximo skins but not the Super Maximo. Is there a pre-cut skin that will work for my ski?
Thanks!

Answer from Jeremy L
 
Hi Kori, thanks for reaching out. We don't carry the precut skins for that ski. We do, however, have all the parts to build a skin for that particular ski in stock. I hope that helps.

I was a little skeptical about the attivo fixing system, but as others have noted, once you get your hands on it, it's very easy to use. Although the tab lays pretty much flat on the ski tip, grabbing it with gloves has never been an issue. The tail clip is very secure and clicks in easily. The glide on these is great and feels like a race skin, but with better grip. Light weight and stuffs into jacket pockets easily.

No issues with the glue on wet snow and long tours yet or the durability of the mohair, time will tell though. The glue seems to hold up better in with PNW snow compared to S-glides or pink race skins.

Hi Tom, sadly no, but ordering is a possibility. We do have some Mistico/Maximo 171 skis due to arrive in the next couple weeks. Those could be trimmed for the Magico.

Question from Jimmy K
 
I have a Ski Trab Polvere 171 cm pair of skis, I was just wondering what skins to get for it that will be compatible with the tips and tail?
Thanks!
11/14/2020
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jimmy, you'll need to build a set with parts. For the first-gen Polvere, you want the EVO tip kit that slides in from the side paired with Attivo tails. For later Polveres, the Attivo (not Attivo.2) kit will do the trick.

Question from Matthew R
 
Can these be kept glue-to-glue to save time while on the trail and then switched to skin saver after drying for long-term storage? I have friends with G3s that do this procedure but figured I should ask first as I'm not sure who manufactures these for Ski-Trab (Pomoca?) Thanks all!
3/4/2020
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Matthew, yes these can be folded glue-to-glue. They should be placed on savers for long-term storage, but I don't even bother with that and haven't had a problem. The mohair is the same material found here.

Question from Seamus Brennan
 
I have the 2017/18 Ski Trab Mistico in 185cm. I am looking for factory pre cut skins for this ski. Do you have these in stock or will you be getting some in? The skins have proven themselves over the past two seasons and many thousands of vertical. The attachment system is fast and effortless. Love my Misticos, especially in this length. We have already started climbing and skiing in the snake Range in central Nevada this season and I can see that my skins will need to be replaced sometime this year. Your shop is awesome, I hope you can accommodate this request. Cheers
12/13/2019
Answer from TSB
 
Thanks for getting in touch, Seamus! Glad you're enjoying your Misticos -- what a ripping ski! We are out of stock of the 185cm Mistico skin at present but we do have a Ski Trab order coming in shortly (end of the month, ideally) so fingers crossed we have some pre-cut Mistico skins winging their way to us from Bormio. If you need new skis sooner than that, we're more than happy to build you skins with Trab's proprietary Attivo tip and tail attachment and a plush of your choice. Cheers!

Question from James Chiang
 
I hope you're doing well! I have a set of La Sportiva / Ski Trab Maximo LSs from 2017 (or possibly 2018), and I was wondering if these skins would fit that year. Also, is the factory fit as good as the fit you can achieve cutting the skins carefully yourself? I'm thinking about getting material and a set of Attivo tip and tail attachments. Thanks in advance for your time.

Cheers,
James

Answer from Teddy Young
 
Hey James, as long as the length is correct, the Maximo skins we have will fit better than attempting to recreate it by building skins. It is possible to build, but the Attivo attachment system doesn't have as much room for error in terms of length. Hope that helps!

Question from tucker
 
what's the difference with the silicone magico skin?
2/16/2018
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Tucker, it has a silicone adhesive instead of hot melt glue. They work based on pressure so have different characteristics in terms of how they stick to the ski. They tend to be easier to peel off and can be washed. They don't like frozen crystals on the ski so sometimes you need to wipe the bases before application.

Question from Anna M Cox
 
I won a pair of Ski Trab skis at a race a few years ago and I am trying to find some skins for them. I think the name of the ski is Ripido, that is what is says on the bottom. They measure 123/88/109 164cm long. Which skins should I get?
3/6/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Anna, we can order the matching skins for you. Otherwise I'd look at grabbing some Trab skin material off the roll and add some Attivo tips and tails.

My wife has had just under 20 days use on these skins and for the most part is really happy with them. The tip and tail was hard to figure out from the limited pics we could find on the internet but the tip/tail system seems to work really well, it's easy to rip the skins from either the tip (pulling the nylon tab riveted to the metal hook) or the tail by pushing the soft foam/rubber piece through the split tail. The skins glide well but don't have near the traction of black diamond nylon skins. It seems that using mohair skins somewhat necessitates a mellower skin track. The skins are starting to fray on the edges which is something I've also noticed on my Trab World Cup skins so I wouldn't say they're the most durable choice. The glue has held up better than any other European glue skin we've used (hagan, dynafit/pomoca). Overall if you buy Trab skis and want a perfectly matched skin I'd suggest picking up a pair, hopefully they last at least two seasons or retrofit the attachments to a more durable pair of skins.

Question from Chris E
 
Used these for the 3rd time out on my Magicos today, up until now they've worked great, even when doing 6 short laps and taking them on and off a lot.

Today I had some pretty bad glue failures on both skins, all on the first lap. Temperatures were near 0F, and I'm wondering if that might have been part of it.

Do you guys have any thoughts on how well the glue holds in cold temperatures on these skins? Is this likely user error, or should I just get some gold label?
1/27/2017
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Chris, glue on most skins will start to struggle when it's below zero (even gold label has limits). Be careful not to let the glue touch the snow as that will really mess things up. Also it's a good idea to store your skins near your body (e.g. inside your jacket) on the down so they can warm up.

Question from Kurt Giesselman
 
I have two pairs of Ski Trabs, Ripidos and Freerando Xls, both in 171cm. I am watching Ski Trab quickly disappear from every website in the US which is a bit disquieting. Looking at your precuts you only have the 178cm left. Not surprising. The Ripidos came with Volare skins. The Freerandos don't have a set of skins to call their own but the Volares fit them well enough.

Questions: You offer three types of cut to fit Ski Trab skins. The Volares are the orange. Are you planning to continue to source these skins or when they are gone, they are gone? How would the yellow race skins compare to the orange or the mohain/nylon skins? Do you have the tip and tail fitting for these skis? Tab and cam for the Ripidos. Not sure what was OEM on the Freerandos.

Am I unnecessarily concerned? Other skins will perform as good or better than Ski Trab's and I should just stockpile the Attivo parts?
4/25/2016
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Kurt,

We love Trab skis and plan on working with them for the long haul. We can get you the precut skins for the Ripido. Send us a picture of the other ski so we can identify the model (the names can be a bit confusing). We do have the tip & tail attachments listed here.

The race skins are a good deal faster and lighter, but less durable than the orange. Other skins can work OK as well, but it can be nice to have the machine precuts with the specialized tips and tails.
