    Details

    Gitty-up. The incredible grip, slide, and durability of the Voile Splitboard Climbing Skins will have your skier buddies bribing you to break trail.

    The Voile Splitboard Climbing Skins are splitboard-specific skins designed to get you into the backcountry. The Voile Tractor Skins' bomber riveted stainless steel tip-loops take the abuse of ascending and ensure they stay securely on your board. Voile used the most tenacious glue and super grippy hydrophobic nylon mohair to keep you ascending into thin air. These extra-wide climbing skins come complete with a nylon bag and trim tool to make sure they fit any splitboard.

    Great Skins

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've been rocking these for two seasons and swap them out between a few boards. If you've got any questions about these skins, Voile products or splitboarding gear, feel free to hit me up as building a split set up can be a bit of a pain.



    Tail Clips:

    I used these for a season without tail clip. Had a few potential melt down's up in Oregon over it. So I'd strongly recommend getting the Voile Tail Clip kit (item VOL000I) to secure the ends of the skins to your board.



    Traction:

    I'm a fan of these for their traction. Only time I struggle is on the steep skinners here in the Wasatch that are a few days old.



    Hit me up with any questions about these skins, Voile products or if you'd like some help building your split set up.

    Great Skins

    Love my skins!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These skins are bomber. I have walked over rocks, downed trees, and tree debris in the skin track and they still look like new. Not even any stains on mine. They are easy on and easy off. Make sure you trim them properly to your boards profile as to not cover the edge on your board but still cover your base so they have maximum efficiency climbing. I cut two triangles off the corners of the tails so the were easy to pull off when you are switching out modes. They fold easily together to throw in your pack or jacket. They are really grippy on the skin track, and I have had no snow on glue issues, even braking trail with them. They stayed glued to my base. Hang them to dry before storing them. Great skins from the originator in splitboarding!

    Good Skins

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've had these skins for 3 years and they have held up so far. I need to reapply some adhesive in certain areas, but that was my fault for not scraping enough wax off my split (some was transferred to the skins, I'll have to heat it up to get the wax off and reapply). Really easy to trim, just got a new board for this season and had to trim them again. The only reason I wont give 5 stars to this is because they do not come with a tail clip.

    Best split skins available!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These skins are bomb proof. I am about to start the 6th season with them and it wasn't until last winter I got the spark tail clips as the glue is getting worn. Other skins that I see out there only last a year or two before the skin material begins to shred.

    Voile Splitboard Climbing Skins

      These Voile Splitboard Climbing Skins are easy to trim, easy to pull, and easy to apply. My husband rigged up some homemade tail clips! I would recommend skin wax if your skins are a few seasons old, the wax helps a lot! Trim tool works great!

      Solid

        Have used these for a season and they are holding up well. As others have noted they are super sticky, would be nice to have some skin savers to make them easier to peel apart. Have not had trouble with them coming loose despite the lack of tail clips, if needed I may invest in some aftermarket tail clips from Spark R&D, also like the idea of the homemade bungee job in the photo above. Have not used any other system to compare, but Voile's asymmetric nose clips align perfectly with the board halves and seem solid.

        Will these fit a 161 cm? Says one size. Just saw somewhere that they may not...

        Benjamin,



        Last year I rode a 159cm and had enough tail left over I was able to trim some off.



        Keep in mind these don't have the tail clips at the end. I'd strongly recommend you getting skins with tail clips.

        I'm new to the slopes so go easy on me with the question I'm about to ask.

        What is the purpose of the climbing skins?

        Best Answer

        Great question Kris! Skins are for those who ski without a ski lift or who need to ascend some snow using only human power. They have a sticky side that sticks to the base of your skis (or in this case, splitboard). The other side has little hairs on it. Originally skins were made of animal skin, so think of a deer - when you rub one way it feels smooth and when you rub the other way the hairs catch and are not smooth. When you attach the skin to your ski, you slide them uphill in the smooth direction, then the little hairs grip the snow and allow you to walk up the hill by sliding your skis up. When you get to the top, you peel the skin off and ski down.

        I've had these skins for 4 years and stored them sticky side together this past summer. They now are leaving a lot of residue on my board. Do I need new skins or is there a fix? It seems like there should be more life in them.. Thanks

        If you search "Glue Renew" you'll see a product by both Black Diamond and G3 that can be used to restore the glue on your skins. Application isn't the easiest, but if you're careful you can get nearly like-new results. You may also want to pick up some base cleaner if your bases have a bunch of glue stuck to them now. Last thing - I have some really, really old skins that will leave goop on my skis if I stick them in the house, but they do just fine if I apply them when it's freezing cold.

        I love these skins!!!! but, after a few rips it takes the wax right out of my board. Any tips ofr tricks to prevent this?
        Thanks, Hayden

        I use a cold wax mixed with all temp, also make sure to scrap really well and polish your board. Remove any wax that has filled in the head of the clip screws and the inside edge. And only use your "skin savers" or "cheat sheets" only when storing them. I keep mine stuck to eachother. Harder to get apart but keeps em' sticky!the glue will wear down a lot from how they behave brand new, its natural. just don't drop them in the dirt... oops.. they can be reglued.

        Just got these skins, and took them out...

        Just got these skins, and took them out for the first time yesterday. It was my first time splitboarding, and I don't ski, so it was the first time I had used skins at all. I had them cut by a shop, and when I went to take them out of the bag at the start of the run, they had been stuck glue on glue and were somewhat difficult to separate. My friend told me that storing them glue on glue was bad for the skins, and would eventually ruin the glue, however some of the reviews Ive read seem to indicate otherwise. I lost the tag with instructions, so I wanted to make sure I am doing the right thing while storing.

        So, a) how should I store at room temp? With cheat sheets? glue on glue? Roll it up?
        b) same question but for alpine conditions?
        c) anything else you think I might need to know about storage

        Thanks, Ian

        does anyone know if anyone else makes split board skins? i have a wide split board and the skins that i have don't cover my base. This causes slipage, my friends that have skins that go edge to edge "wall to wall carpet" dont seem to have the slipage issues. any input is much appreciated!

        Why do the skins only extend the running length of the board, rather than all the way up the tail. The Voile kit specifies they should only run this far too - can anyone tell me why?

        you don't need any more surface area than that — you make up for it in the width of the skins. these things'll get you up where you need them to. plus, any more length is just that much more skin to pull apart (ie. more strength, more time, more space to store, etc.).

        Hello,I am using a splitboard since three...

        Hello,I am using a splitboard since three years. Everything works fine, but the skins. They are voile splitboard skins which were delivered with my prior khyber board. I hardly can climb without crampons - at moderately steep ascents on a hard, slightly frozen surface I have no sufficient traction. Can anyone recommend me better skins? Or am I just too lightweight (50 kilos)?Cheers,Genia

        I'm going to make my own splitboard useing...

        I'm going to make my own splitboard useing the Voile Split Decision Kit. Can I use these skins for my powder board or is there another type of skin i need to get?

        i recently made a split board as well, and the first pair of skins i bought for it were wide ski skins. the problem with using a ski skin is that the clip that goes over the tip is straight, where as the clip on the voile skin is angled to fit a split board much better. plus the volie skin is much wider than any ski skin i could find, so you don't have the annoying gaps on either side of your skin.
