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.
Check out our swiss precision : <<micro@3 = shornblazed>>, <<micro@4 = laserized>>, and <<micro@5 = trunicated>>.
These cutting + fiber (characteristics) + finishings-processes will make you glide&smile on your way up the hill.
Skins are made to grip. That is their initial purpose. It is conceivable that the angle at which the fibers protrude from the weaving fabric, effect in one direction the glide and in the opposite direction the grip. This permits a good skinner as well as the beginner skinner, to climb more steep and more safe. Good skinning is a magic art of balance, faith, and reading terrain, then on top with the ogso fiber angle that is applied on ORB and RAD you will be more efficient climbing the mountains
Your skins need to stay attached to your skis. It is the glue’s job to do that. Ogso skin glue-melt on wet conditions, high shear forces, repeated use. The OGSO skins glue extremely well, yet easy to place on the ski and easy to take off.
The water-shut layer stops water penetration through the skin, and the smoothness of each single fibre lessens water assembly, therefore OGSO skins simply get less wet and dehumidification goes faster.
We weave the fabric of the skins extremely compact and by using microfibers in both weft&warp, we acheive the highest density possible. This makes OGSO skins in comparision longer resistant to abrasion and at the same time they have more grip.
All OGSO skins are easy to be packed.
We always thrive to our ski mountaineers standard as light as possible yet also as robust as necessary. Check out the weights indicated by each skin-specs.
