Adhesive back features a glueless strip to make removal easier in the field. Swaged cable tip loop is super-strong and fits a wide range of ski tip profiles.
Sizing Skins: Choose skins based on the width of the widest part of your ski, the tip. You want the width of the skin to be just slightly skinnier than the tip of your ski by about 10mm. This helps you avoid cutting off a ton of extra skin material when trimming your skins. You will then trim the sides of the skin to match the shape of your skis. Some skins come in different lengths. Verify that you have picked a skin long enough for your skis.
