Pros Light, fast gliding, enough grip, optimized glue, universal tip and tailSuper light and compact, sticky glue, good grip/glide balanceLight, fast glidingLight, well balanced performance, and an excellent tip attachmentAmazing tip and tail attachment, excellent trim tool, well-balanced grip and glide
Cons Mohair blend will wear out faster than all nylon, harder to find than other brandsMoody tail clip, sticky glueDurability concerns, limited gripExclusive to Dynafit skisPrevious experience with this glue formulation was poor, 100% mohair construction is known to be less durable
Bottom Line Climbing skins inherently strike compromises; winner of our top award, it balances competing demands better than any other.The snow contact surface is perfectly tuned, while the glue is especially tenacious and the tail clip is a little moody, at best.You get exceptional glide, but pay for that with durability, grip, and some icing resistance.If you have Dynafit skis, these are the obvious and excellent choice of skins.What we see so far is great, but we have some nagging doubts we’ll address with some more skiing.
