Climbing skins are the most important piece of equipment for ski tourers, determining whether a tour is enjoyable or torturous. Völkl Smart Skin Clip climbing skins offer excellent glide, a precise fit, the simplest and variable attachment and removal plus impressive components to make ascents as smooth as possible.
Reduced moisture absorption
Our skins no longer need a cotton base layer and the plush is stuck directly to the adhesive. This means the skins take longer to become saturated as there is no cotton layer to absorb moisture.
There’s no need to worry if you’re heading on a tour that starts in wet snow in a warmer valley location before continuing in far colder snow as you gain altitude! As the skins absorb less water, they also freeze far less.
Enhanced adhesive technology for easier handling!
Thanks to the optimised Smart Glue technology, the skins stick securely to the ski bases but can also be removed from them more easily. The adhesive surfaces are easier to separate after being transported (e.g. in a skin bag), largely dispensing with the need for protective netting!
Precise laser cuts enable a perfect match between the width of the skins and skis.
A precise laser cut makes the skin width the perfect fit for the respective skis. The cut edge is so robust that the skins fray far less.
Best combination of glide & grip
Our 70/30 mohair/nylon mix skin allows the skis to glide forward with little effort and provides optimum grip under load to enable you to calmly and confidently take your next step.
Our Smart Skin Clip System provides complete freedom when attaching and removing skins: this can be done from the tip to the tail of the skis or vice-versa as desired thanks to clips at both ends of the skins.
The newly developed Smart Skinclip system allows the ski tourer to decide for himself, depending on the situation, in which direction he should pull the skin on and off.
