Hi, am wondering what size skin to go with. My ski dimensions are 124-88-111...Work Stinx K2...I will be doing moderate, steady climbing, not much flat or glide work
I would say get the 110s, but I might also recommend NOT going with a pure mohair if you are just going straight up and down, get a nylon mix or pure nylon.
I second Evan's suggestion. The Pure Mohair skins are floppier and lighter weight. The thin material is much more flexible than other skins, so they don't fold together as easily as mixed, or nylon skins. They glide better, and are more for long tours where the ascent is not too steep. The Nylon and Mix Mohair/Nylon are more for climbing. The 110 will also short you some coverage, so pay the extra couple of bucks and get a 125mm. For moderate climbs, the Mix will give you plenty of grip. The pure Nylon has the best grip, but the glide isn't quite as good as the mixed mohair. Make sure to watch the video from BD about trimming your skins:
Hope that helps. Enjoy!
