  • Glueless Skins Again

    So, in need of one pair of skins for next season and dreaming the possibility of glueless skins. I've always used BD skins STS with good results except for the inconsistent glue issues. Last season got two pair of BD skins and had friends get some BD skins too and after all the claims by BD of improved glue, found out that sure, the glue didn't fail but it was so sticky it was extra tough to pull apart, especially tough with bigger skins.

    Now, needing to get another pair, do I get the same with the same issues or maybe finally some skinless glue options that would actually live thru a few seasons of hard use.

    Anything new in the pipeline?.............

        There are two new options that are marketed as "glueless" for next season. Two thumbs up on both. Neither are glueless. Both use a silicone based adhesive. True glueless climbing skins have also been reviewed extensively - they're called Clip Skins. Unfortunately, they are NOT available on the general market but will, eventually, someday, be available pre-trimmed, but probably not for your favorite ski.

        High Trails climbing skins reviewed already.

        Volkl skin review pending.

              That's somewhat temperature dependent.

                Ok, so it is only somewhat of a bummer?
