Boasting the latest technology to ensure proper fit and extraordinary grip, the Volkl V-Werks Katana Climbing Skins are specifically designed to complement your V-Werks Katana skis
- Tahoe Mountain Sports
Your Katanas are backcountry beasts, but you have to get to the top of the mountain before you can tear it up on the way down. Put on the Volkl V-Werks Katana Vacuum Climbing Skins, and earn your turns without bothering with pesky adhesives or glues. Multi-layer construction makes these skins durable and functional. The unique adhesive surface layer produces a vacuum for secure connection to the ski, a highly durable base layer prevents stretching or crimping, a waterproof middle layer prevents moisture from penetrating through to the adhesive surface, and the mohair skin surface provides exceptional grip and gliding. A fluorocarbon treatment prevents snow from caking on while the non-silicone-based construction provides stability and durability for long-days in intense alpine sun. Just as there is no need for adhesives with these skins, there is also no need for dividing film or mesh; just roll them up when you get to the top, rip back down, and repeat.
The Marker Katana Vacuum Custom Mohair Mix Climbing Skins are a great addition to your Volkl Katana skis. Precut to fit, the Katana skins are the perfect accessory when you're ready to take your boards into the backcountry. They feature Marker's unique Skin Pin System which easily attaches to skis when you're climbing and allows for super easy removal before the decent. The mohair/ nylon mix provides awesome uphill grip for when the terrain gets slick.
