Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed exclusively for the K2 HardSide skis (sold separately), these K2 climbing skins feature an innovative attachment system to reduce weight and friction. Improved for 2012/2013, the minamalist design of the Z-Clip tip attachments keeps weight low and helps prevent snow from building up where the skins meet the skis. Z-Clip attachments easily hook onto the holes at the tips of K2 skis. Adjustable tail straps interface with the tail holes on K2 skis to secure the skins; clips sit on top of the skis rather than at the back to reduce drag. Choose the length that matches your ski length; width of the skin is pretrimmed to match the sidecut of the K2 HardSide skis. K2 HardSide climbing skins include Glue Saver mesh storage sheets, detailed instructions and a nylon storage bag.


Built specifically for K2's HardSide Skis, the K2 HardSide Climbing Skins are the smart and hassle-free way to complete your touring set up. Designed using K2's innovative Z-Clip attachment system, these skins are incredibly simple to put on, and the precise dimensions and minimalist design help reduce weight and unnecessary drag during your climb.

Skin up the sidecountry on your K2 HardSide skis when you use the pre-cut HardSide Skins. Don't worry about trimming to fit because that's already been done for you. Pull them out of the box, slap them on your skis using the tip and tail holes, and skin up some fresh tracks.
