    Convenience on the climb.

    The V-Werks BMT 94 Vacuum Climbing Skins by Volkl add a whole new level of convenience to dawn patrol days. The adhesive surface produce vacuum-tight closure without the use of glues, and the Skin Pin secures these skins to your Nanuq skis. Volkl's special Mohair Mix gives these skins an exceptional grip that glides with ease. Their midlayer features a waterproof film to prevent moisture buildup, and the durable baselayer resists crimping as well as stretching for durable longevity.

    do not work

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Agree with the other reviews, these do not stick to the base adequately and pose a risk. Even with careful drying of the base they still come off. Do not work for 1 x ascent, forget it if you are doing multiple laps or long tours. I have asked Volkl if they have a "glue skin" pre cut for the BMT ski but got no response. Thanks to backcountry for giving me credit for the return. Looking for a skin that will work well on this ski, advice ?

    Don't Buy These Skins

      These skins don't stick well to the bases. Yesterday, my skin came off during a climb in a really steep spot. It was a serious safety issue. I have been fighting to get these to stick to my bases since last spring. These are going in the dumpster. Tail clip won't stay on either. I have the 109mm size.

      If you value you your life, DO NOT buy.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      In the backcountry, your skins are your life, which is why you should not buy these skins if you value your life. I recently completed a 6 day tour in the Alps with these skins. Every single day except for one warm day these skins failed to stick to the skis. Another friend of mine also had these skins on the tour and the same exact thing happened to him. Therefore, my experience is not an isolated incidence. Everyday, we used duck tape to keep the skins from falling off. Those on the tour with traditional glue skins did not experience this lack of adhesion to the ski. To make matters worse, these skins are more expensive than traditional glue skins. Although the Volkl pin system is convenient, it is not worth risking death as the rest of the skin will just fall off leaving only the tip attached. In my testing before the tour, the skin adhesion failed one time during an exceptionally cold day (-27 F). I contacted backcountry with my concerns, but they couldn't do anything. Then on the Haute Route these skins failed every day. Their failure really ruined my experience because I was constantly worried about the skins falling off, and me suddenly losing traction. Backcountry, you should stop selling this item because they are absolutely unsafe. If you are considering buying them, DO NOT. Again, my friend had the same problem. If you own these skins, do not go into the backcountry without an ample supply of duck tape. As you can see in the picture, me and my friend had to tape the skins both in the middle and at the tail. In conclusion, buy at your own risk.

      If you value you your life, DO NOT buy.

      How were the BMT 94 skis on the Haute Route ? I'm going to be doing this and was concerned about the skins as I have had the same issue. I have found that on repeated taking skins on/off I have to be really careful to dry the ski with the bag but even if I do this they still come off.

      Hi JMH, I was on the Volkl Nanuq and my friend was on the BMT 94 skis. The skis were great; it was only an issue with the skins. Volkl sent him a pair of Colltex skins that integrate with the ski to replace the vacuum skins. Whatever you do, do not take them on the Haute Route!

      Thanks Joseph. I ended up buying the Pomoca skins for these as I never even got a response from Volkl ! I had hoped that buying skis and skins at over $1000 might come with some sort of customer support but I guess not. Glad to hear the ski worked will though.
