Is the most important attribute of climbing skins. Skins that glide easily facilitate a perfect skinning technique where you slide the skis rather than lift them. This will help you to consume less energy, help you climb safer and easier, so that you can enjoy more of the ogso on the way down. Glide characteristics of your skins are determined through the length of the hairs|fibers|filaments, the angle in which the fibers are woven, and finally the uniformity (glattheit) from each single fiber. Those that glide better have lower profile and are more closely shorn.

These cutting + fiber (characteristics) + finishings-processes will make you glide&smile on your way up the hill.
