Rando Steve is the Man.Thanks.
i learned something.. thanks steve… oh and nice nuun sticker – love it!
Great video, Steve! Am wondering if you leave no edges showing when you trim, as shown? Do you prefer tyhis to exposing edges? I do occasionally find my skis slipping on steep uptracks. I hadn’t been too concerned until now to have skins that covered every millimeter of my base. I’ve also gone with 110mm skins for skis that are 126/96/113 . Do you find this important, covering every bit of the base?
I wouldn’t worry about covering the whole base….tip to tail. But I would make sure the edges are covered at least under your foot.
Well done, Steve. Great instruction! –Doug
The only time i’ve had trouble with a full coverage skin is actually exactly when you say it’s best. Most of the established skin tracks in my area have a few sections that force you onto your edges to sidestep precarious/ narrow steep sections. when people have been sliding around on them it makes it near impossible without edges showing. Good video though… nice and comprehensive, you should just do one for edge show as well since that’s where more people manage to screw up their skins unless they’re using a G3 cut tool…
[…] needs to be over 110mm…or there just isn’t enough plush left after trimming. Also, I recommend trimming them wall-to-wall…with little or no edge really exposed. Why? Because they climb better this way. On a side […]
Funny video and you’re a good writer, as well, but I wonder about your summary dismissal of cheat sheets. Are you saying that anyone of average strength can separate their folded skins and that glue can be neither created nor destroyed?
Thanks for this post mate. hope you have a good day. thanks 🙂
Can’t go wrong with the way you explain it. Just what I needed to make sure I didn’t wreck my skins! Sweet and well done! Now, can’t wait to get out there and test my new cut skins!!! Thanks
