Karakoram Smart Skins

Just like you'd never leave your smartphone at home, you'd never leave your Karakoram Smart Skins behind on a backcountry tour, otherwise you're heading back home and either staying there or making your touring partners wait for you. Both options suck, but what doesn't suck is the skin's perfect blend of nylon and mohair for a solid performance whether you're gripping the steeps or gliding across the not-so-steep. The tip and tail fit most splits securely, and the glue is neither too sticky nor too slippery.


  • Smart splitboard skins styled for backcountry touring
  • Mohair blend balances grip and glide for a versatile performance
  • Wire tip and edge tail give universal attachments on most splits
  • Kohla's PFC-free, vulcanized rubber waterproofing reduces icing
  • Kohla Smart Glue Technology optimizes adhesion and eases pull-apart

I love Karakoram, but these are trash...

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 2"

I love the brand and have used them for years... Hoping this was a bad batch. The glue was almost non-existent to begin with, after the 3rd tour it became fully glue-less. Never seen anything like it. Also, the "hair" side damaged very easily.

Good skins bad glue

I've put it through the wringer

Same problem as other review, glue is not good. After I re glued they are great-good glide and decent on the uphill; but take extra ski straps for when it fails out of the box..

No sticky

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
6' 2"

Not sticky and almost useless when below 25 degrees. First time out using them in fresh powder, I was constantly having to take them off and scrap the snow out. At the end of the day, they were too cold and wouldn?t stick at all. I would not recommend these at all. The climbing and glide of these are great but not sticky enough.

Already Stoked!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Excited to put these through the wringer. They look to be well built, use the same materials as my old skins, which had awesome glide and plenty of grip. They are pretty light compared to my nylon skins
