Decent for interior snow but not so great for coastal skiing.


  • Secure on skis
  • Climb well
  • Stick well in cold weather


  • Don't work well in coastal (moist) conditions
  • Poor glide
  • Aren't easy to remove without taking off skis

I live in the Pacific Northwest and have tried these in the Rockies as well. They worked fairly well in the dry Rockies but accumulate a lot of snow between the skin and the ski and don't glide well in coastal conditions.

The fastening system works well and even with half the glue covered in snow they still climb well. The con of the fastening system is that when removing them while still wearing the skis the tip clip comes out easily half the time and requires the balance of a prima ballerina in order to release it the other half.
