Details

Go glueless.

A vacuum is a space devoid of matter, and the same can be said for the Kohla Vacuum Base 2.0 Climbing Skin. Its glue-free base will be devoid of the normal litany of hair and lint it collects after your first tour and you've hung them up to dry in your living room. Say goodbye to cat hair on your skins, and say goodbye to them getting stuck together as well. With its unique adhesive side, which sticks to your bases but not to each other, you won't have to worry about sticky residue slowing down your powder run, and they'll no longer be a pain to separate, making an extra backcountry lap all the easier.

  • Glue-free climbing skin for a tour made simple
  • Mixmohair offers a sure grip on snow for confident skinning
  • 135mm width can be trimmed down to fit ski
  • Item #KOH000A

Kohla Vacuum Base 2.0 skins

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

I ordered these to check out the new Vacuum adhesive skins on a new pair of skis.. Skinned up at a resort today to try them out in cold, blowing and icy conditions. Applied skins on cold skis, with blowing snow, on side of trail. Initial bonding of cold skins to ski base seemed marginal, but after rubbing down skins with hand, and clip on tails, adhesion was ok.
Glide initially was poor, but after 1000 vertical seemed fine. At summit, skins had not shifted, a bit of dry snow under skins on one ski tip, and one ski tail.
A dream to rip skins, with skis on. One small tug, on tail, and skins jumped off the skis. Easy to fold and pull skins apart again..I will test some more and may upgrade to 5 stars. Want to try them in deep powder..
Note, the image on this Backcountry product page shows the Kohla Vacuum Base Zero skins; the Kohla Vacuum Base 2.0 skins are a different color..see picture. Link here

Kohla Vacuum Base 2.0 skins

More time on these skins. I tried them on a wet day; last week, on snow with a lot of moisture, even light rain. They held on fine, for a 1500 foot skin. On another day tour, with colder, dry snow did 3 laps, and on removing skins (skis still on ,easy to do) there was no sign of any loss of adhesion to ski.
Both times a bit of snow under the skin at the tip, but no problems. They fold small in my pack, one time doing laps, dumped the pack, and just folded them into hood of my jacket. Adhesive does not stick to stuff in my pack, and no sign of contamination, like regular glue adhesive.
One more note, you can't use the G3 skin trimming tool with these. Skin shifts on ski as you try to trim. Use included Kohla skin trimming tool.
