The unique hybrid adhesive consists of two different layers of technical glue which provide both, a perfect bond between the glue and the back of the skin as well as perfect tack to the ski base preventing snow from entering between ski and skin. hybrid technology offers all advantages of “glueless” skins: excellent tack even at very low temperatures and for multiple ascents, easy handling and no more reglueing – the adhesive can simply be cleaned and thus reactivated.
WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT IT:
- Nice and smooth gliding abilities without losing grip in the uphill
- Less bulky than other climbing skins that are made of 100% synthetic.
- One size fits all splitboard lengths up to 180cm
WHAT WE LIKED THE LEAST ABOUT IT:
- The tail clip has room for improvement in order to offer a tighter fit and easier installment.
WHAT IS IT USEFUL FOR

Thanks to its Hybrid construction one can forget about the need to reglue the skin and use them for many seasons.
