Made of nylon for optimal durability and grip, this short skin can be used on all Åsnes skis with a skin insertion point. Nylon skins are excellently suited for wet and heavy snow.
To further enhance the skin’s performance, we recommend waxing/proofing it for a better glide.

To preserve the quality of skins as long as possible, we recommend they should always be kept clean, immediately dried after usage, and periodically waxed or proofed. It is best to store this skin in the accompanying bag.
NYLON – SYNTHETIC FIBER (SUPERB GRIP AND ABRASION RESISTANCE):
The nylon skin is made of synthetic fiber, which means longer durability and the type of skin that that is much more resistant to moisture and icing. Therefore, such skins are suitable for hard use and in damp/moist conditions. Nylon skins also provide the best possible grip in the vast majority of conditions but do not glide as well as mohair skins.
X-SKIN SHORT SKINS:
Suitable for BC skiing. As a standard, it should accompany two pairs of short skins to all Åsnes BC skis.
Short skins require little maintenance. When using a short skin, you get a solid grip under the ski, regardless of conditions. At the same time, much of the glide is preserved because the skin only covers the grip-zone under the ski.
Short skins are especially distinguished in deep snow, whether to pull a sled or if one wants to be guaranteed good grip regardless of conditions. Some also choose to attach them permanently under the ski, especially on expeditions. It can also provide security to those who want to slow down a little more during descent.
