colltex - an Icon in the ski touring industry
Located in the spectacular town of Glarus in Switzerland, they have been
making touring ski skins for over 40 years!
Colltex® adhesive ski skins revolutionized the ski-skin market in 1968 and
today they are known as the highest quality skins made. They are the largest
manufacturer of Mohair skins. A natural fibre material that has been proven to significantly
reduce drag when touring. This translates into huge efficiency and energy gains
for the ski tourer - according to independent studies up to a 20%
reduction in drag! Guides and World Cup Ski Mountaineering racers
have known about this for years.
Constant improvements and ongoing development mean that Colltex® adhesive
ski skins offer maximum performance. The latest improvement is new
inorganic pressure sensitive glue. This ct40 glue is a new era in adhesive skin
technology, it works across a temperature range from -50 C to +50C. The
molecules of the glue change orientation under pressure to provide the needed
adhesion. No more fighting with stuck together skins, no more poor performance
as temperatures fluctuate throughout the season.
You won't find a better skin!
