With a bit more grip and durability than the World Cup race formula, the red Evo skins from Ski Trab still pack some serious glide. Made with 100% mohair, the skin material is the same as that used in the precut skins for Trab’s aramid-core skis. Combined with some Attivo skin tips, you can assemble some skins for just about any Trab ski. Or with different hardware, just about any other ski can be kitted affordably as well. There are now fewer excuses for not using the speed offered by 100% mohair. Using efficient technique, you will be rewarded with every slide-step.

ORDERING NOTE: These skins are sold by the centimeter (cm), meaning you should type in the Qty field the length (in cm) of skin you want for one ski “times two” for a PAIR. Unless you are making a backup skin, then just times it by one.

TL;DR The best value mohair roll for your mid width skimo needs.

I got the 90mm width for making skimo race style skins for my G3 86 Findr's that I've tip notched. I ended up with about 145cm length skin for skis are 177cm length. Used them all winter in Tahoe, Shasta, and Oregon snow (so warmer, wetter climates) for both general touring and racing. Made them with hand sewing method using nylon thread + bungee cord + plastic disk at the beginning of the 18/19 season and did not have any durability problems. They replaced some BD nylon skins that were basically straight cut for the same skis.

The glue is on the thinner side if you are use to BD or G3's glue amount, but that's what you get with lighter weight skins. As long as there is glue on the skin it did stick well though, and didn't have to baby them. Definitely worth having a tube of BD gold label at home to touch up the tip and tail sections where you touch the most putting on and ripping skins. Their reduced weight from the lighter backer and lighter glue amount from BD nylons was awesome.

Finally started to wax my skins as well and even though these are already faster than BD's older pure mohair skins, putting wax on them is great extra bit of glide for when I did race with them. Their grip was great for most everything I threw at them minus some real icy evening Shasta uphilling where ski crampons were needed. As long as you stay out of your high risers you shouldn't have a problem in most the Pacific snowpacks. I'll be in the rockies this winter and report back.

I bought these off a roll and cut them for 80mm skis for ski mountaineering. I set them up with the Colltex tip attachments (no heel attachment) and works super well. The skins are reasonably fast. Used them about 30 days now and I am happy. Good value for the price.

See my review for more details on the Precut version that I have for my Magico skis. But in brief, I've previously used other 100% mohair skins from Atomic, Black Diamond, CAMP, Colltex, Dynafit, plus Trab's mohair version designed for racing. I've also used momix skins from Black Diamond, Colltex, Dynafit, and Trab.

Trab claims that this touring version of its mohair skin has better grip than its own race mohair. Hard to tell without a side-by-side comparison with identically cut skins, but the grip has seemed perfectly fine to me, on a pair with any other momix skin. And glide is of course excellent.

Trab does acknowledge that durability is compromised relative to a momix skin. I haven't noticed any wear on the plush so far, but then again I've used them only on winter snow that hasn't been very abrasive.

Skin glue is relatively light but has performed well.

So overall, Five Stars for a really cheap way to get a really high-end 100% mohair climbing skin for your winter touring ski setup.

Question from Matt
 
Love the offerings and info here... But when I put the length in as 160cm will I get two 160cm skins? Or just one? I've read "everything is sold in pairs" but is that true for skins too? Thanks

Answer from jbo
 
Thanks Matt, the skin off the rolls is sold per centimeter, so you'd need 320cm to get two 160cm lengths. The "everything sold in pairs" was applicable only to the listing on which you read it.
