K2 Hellbent Climbing Skins: Brand new for 2011, the K2 Hellbent Climbing Skins are precut skins built specifically to fit the 2011 K2 Hellbent Skis, no trimming necessary. Pop out the removable plugs on the tip and tail of the K2 Hellbent Skis to attach the K2 Hellbent Climbing Skins for touring. K2 s proprietary Z-Clip tip hardware and fold over tail strap are the cleanest and lightest in the business.
The K2 Hellbent Climbing Skins are compatible with the 2011 K2 Hellbent skis and will not work with older models of the K2 Hellbent.
Z Clip and tail strap attachment: Quick, simple and lightweight, the Z Clip utilizes the hole in the ski tip and tail and eliminates the skin fold-over required with typical D rings. This not only reduces weight, but gets rid of the buildup of snow that accumulates under the fold, which eventually peels your skins off. The Tail Strap Clip interfaces with the tail hole to secure and register the skin to the center of the ski. Unlike most clips which create friction by dragging in the snow every step, this clip sits on top of the ski so there is no drag created by the attachment.
