Pros Fast gliding, excellent resistance to icing and wettingLight, 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 attachment
Cons Glue integrity, poor gripMohair blend will wear out faster than all nylon, harder to find than other brandsMoody tail clip, sticky glueDurability concerns, limited gripExclusive to Dynafit skis
Bottom Line In certain situations, the uniquely exceptional glide and icing resistance might be worth the glue and grip trade offs.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.
