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.
