Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • I have 170cm long skis, what length of skins should I chose ? Aren't the medium going to be too big since they're recommended starting at 168cm ?

    Thanks for your inquiry, for 170cm skis I would recommend hte Medium Skins. These skins will be on the longer side for you but you will get good coverage and they will still fit. 

  • I have 163cm ski and previously used your short G3 aplinist skins which I now need to replace - I found they worked well most in most conditions but had trouble with slipping on steep traverses in French alps last year. There was quite a lot of uncovered tail with those skins and I wondered if the medium length would fit my ski and give better grip?

    Hi Trudy, 
    I don't think the Mediums will fit your skis based on the range. If you are finding you are having traction issues then perhaps the High Traction skins would be a better fit.  I hope that helps.
