Climb Pro S-Glide Climbing Skins

The Pomoca Climb Pro S-Glide Climbing Skins strike a healthy balance between grip and glide capabilities. This skin does so with the silky glide of mohair and durable grip of nylon. These skins resist tangling and twisting, dry quickly, and cling to steep skintracks with dynamic tenacity. Glide technology reduces friction on each fiber so even sticky snow doesn't stick and slow them down. Ever Dry technology resists weight-adding moisture to keep the skins light and fast. The Back Fix attachment features a simple strap at the tip and an easily adjustable tail strap with plastic hook.

  • Efficient climbing skins for backcountry skiing
  • Mohair blend balances glide and grip performance
  • Added gliding performance and safe grip when climbing
  • Thin, ultralight, and waterproof Safer Skin membrane

Best All Around Skin

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

*Full Disclosure* I am employed by the parent company of POMOCA. These were my first pair of POMOCA skins, purchased well before I started working for/at the company. I have probably around 75 days on them in two seasons, and i have been nothing but impressed thus far. If you are tired of either carrying around a skin that doesn't pack down well or weighs too much, or you are tired of your glue failing on you, this could be the skin to look at. For how well these grip and glide, they weight almost nothing, and can pack down incredibly small - this is the only skin I've ever been able to fit easily in most jackets "skin pockets". Yet, for how light they are, they will outperform any other skin on the skin track, and withstand the punishment that comes from long days in the hills. The skins come with a proprietary glide treatment (POMOCA's "secret sauce") that allow these to glide effortlessly over any snow condition, while the 70/30 mohair-nylon mix ensures that you have all the grip you need for when the going gets steeper or icier. One thing to be careful of with these skins is the glue icing up. This glue will never clump or become tacky and stick to you skis - a huge positive - but I have found if I am doing shorter laps in the backcountry, I really need to make sure the skins are properly warmed up before each uphill, so that the glue sticks as necessary. A very small price to pay for what is otherwise, in my mind, a perfect skin.

Its all about the GLUE!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I look for two things in skins--that they do a good job on the up and the down. I've used a lot of skins that glide well and grip well going up and a lot of skins that pack down nice and small in my bag for the way down. What I like the most thought about these is the glue is the perfect amount of sticky. Some skins that are almost perfect are so sticky I can't rando-rip them without getting a hernia and some end up with the glue getting funky and globby after just a season it ruins my bases. I've been using the pomoca skins around 75 days/season the last two years and they still work just like when I first got them. I'm not very nice to my gear either, they have held up really well. Good on the up and down and still sticking just the right amount!

My favorite skins

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These skins are quick and easy to install. The new trimming tool is the best available. The fabric is the perfect blend of grip and glide for the touring I do in the Colorado Front Range. On past versions of these skins the glue has been a bit finicky, reluctant to stick when very cold or damp. The new glue looks to be an improvement--time will tell.

Best Skins on the Market!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Having tried BD as well as G3 skins, these Pomocas are easily my favorite! They come cut to length, and the trimming tool is the best one available, making for an easy and perfect cut. As for their performance, its grip/glide balance is just right! The glue is amazing, sticks well in a variety of conditions, and rips easy. This is especially important for me since I have some shoulder injuries and found that I don't have to wail too hard on these skins to rip. Thanks Pomoca, and keep up the good work!

Keep them in your jacket between laps

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've toured on the same Black Diamond skins on multiple pairs of skis over the last 7 years. They worked and worked well, but after substantial use and abuse, the glide was suffering. I picked up the pomoca thinking it would help me be faster and more efficient skinning. They worked great on the first tour consisting of a single lap. The second tour I was doing multiple laps in single digit weather. For the first time, I experienced the dreaded "skins are too cold to stick" problem. I never experienced this with the BD adhesive, so I was a bit shocked. After warming the skins in my jacket for 25 minutes, I finally got them to stick to my skis. Pomoca's adhesive seems to be a bit more finicky in cold weather. I'd advise not dropping your skins in the snow and sticking your skins in your jacket to keep them warm on the downhill. Lots of people have told me to do this over the years, but my BDs never had this issue so I just didn't think to do it with my Pomocas. Lesson learned.

Worth Every Penny

I've had mulitple editions of the G3's and these Pomoca's really stand out. The G3's are great, for the price. They really are. But, these Pomoca's are worth every penny, if you can spare it. They are light and the do glide. I'm not sure about the previous reviewer. Maybe there are skins that have a lot more glide than these, and I just dont' have the experience. But, I would question their climbing abilities, then. There seems to be a tiny bit less traction climbing, than the g3 alpinist. But, just a small amount and it's worth the trade off for the glide. I also prefer the glue on these. I can rip them off my skis, which is so awesome. It's harder on colder days, but still doable.

These skins are awesome! They have the best grip I've experienced without sacrificing the glide. Plus, they were super easy to cut for the skis. Other reviews complained that the plastic grips broke, but they also sent me metal ones with these so nothing to complain about here!

The best grip and glide

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I have never had a skin as good as this one, hands down. It has the best grip/glide ratio I have ever experienced in a skin, and I could not recommend it enough! If you are the market for a good mohair skin, definitely take a look. Also, check out the details video below.

Best of all worlds

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've used G3 Alpinists and BD Ascensionists skins for years, mainly the G3's. This is my first season on these and I'm really happy with them. THey pack smaller and are lighter than my G3's. They've got the same grip, and better glide. This skin does it all better than any skin I've tried in the past!

great skins...buying more.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've only got experience with BD skins and these but on paper, these are lighter and go on/off easy and I'm not seeing any performance deficit (maybe improvement?) from my use last year. I'm putting together another touring setup (narrower for packed/tracked touring days) and buying more so put me down as a repeat customer.

Ultra Fast and Ultra Grip

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are the best all around skins I have used so far. almost as fast as mohair pure skins but with better grip and better moisture management due to the mix of mohair and nylon.

So far so good

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

I have used these skins a couple of times, but so far I really like them. I have gone out on a really cold and warm day and both times they were excellent. Easy on and off, and they pack well too.

Great Skins!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The glue is wonderful. The skins are very easy to apply to the skis. More so than any other brand I’ve tried. No issues with them coming off unless intentionally removed which is also easier than other brands I’ve tried. The cutting tool saves a step versus other tools, cuts back the skin just inside the edge of the ski. No cutting to length required. Instead of wax paper backing they came with a reusable plastic backer eliminating the need for buying a skin saver. They glide better than typical nylon free ride type skins. A definite buy again product for my next pair of skis. Thank you Switzerland!

My favorite piece of equipment

The glide on these might be the single best thing you can do for your ski touring. I'm on pair 3, and couldn't be happier. They glide smooth, grip incredibly well, are so light, and pack down to nothing.

Flimsy tip attachment

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The skins themselves are good but the tip attachment falls apart easily and the pieces disappear into the snow. I'm now shopping for new ways to attach the tips.

I broke a tip attachment too.. I replaced it with the BD tip bail attachment which is all metal. Pomoca's is plastic. Works great. I love the light and low-profile skins.

Some reviews of these here and elsewhere reference issues with some of the plastic parts. Do these skins have a plastic tip loop? Also, looking at these for a pair of Line Pescados. I have seen pictures of skins set up on the Pescados with a BD tail clip, which seems to nestle into the notch of the swallowtail quite nicely. I can't seem to picture how the Pomoca clip pictured would fit well in that notch. Can anyone definitively say whether or not this will work well? If not, are there any work arounds? Thanks!

What size would be suggested for a pair of Black Crows Corvus Freebirds length 183?

That ski is 139mm at the tip so you can use the 140mm skin and cut it down. For length you want the large which works with skis 175cm-190cm.
