Product Description

Whether you're headed up Teton Pass for a quick run, or headed out on a 30 day glacier traverse in Antarctica Tip & Tail Skins provide a bomber setup. Our skins are made with the right blend of properties; low bulk and supple enough for packing when frozen, yet not unmanageable in rough conditions.

Available in three attachment configurations.


Tip & Tail Skins

Bent tip rings with low profile stretchers, stainless steel tailhooks, and adhesive with wide temperature range all make for a robust attachment system.

Simple Skins

Bare Functionality. For people who like to shave extra grams without sacrificing ease of use, we offer the Simple Skins. Shown at right with 3 options for trimming the tails, this set up will take you where ever you need to go. Made with the same material as our other skins, these come with a bent steel tip ring, and no tail attachment.

Twin Tip Skins

All of a sudden, twin tip skis may have the most secure skins in the world! Conceived of by our in house genius, these things work great. Basically the same as our other skins, but instead of trying to make a skinny metal hook stay in the center of a rounded tail, we have started using our same bent steel rings for the tail of the ski as well. Testing has shown that this is really secure on most twin tip shapes, including "barely there" twin tips like the ski shown at right, an Atomic TM-X.

Comes with stretchers for the tips, and extra rings for your tails. All you need for Twin Tip Skins are rounded tails!

all come 200 cm in length.
Available in 4 widths.
Trim Tool and instructions included.
