Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good to open fresh track This skins are so light, the nylon strip saves you weight. More when after 2 laps the skin gets wet and heavy. They are very good for long touring and opening fresh tracks. They have poor grip in rocker skis in a packed skin track. Making you slide backwards. Pushing you out for new skin track. If they get wet the grip gets bad. Glue can come poor at the point of the adjustable clips, the rest stays good. December 26, 2013
