Traditionalist? Like to go with what's known and proven? Go with our traditional glue skins.

Cutting Edge? First Adopter? Go with our brand new, exclusive dual-zone compound adhesive skins. Adhesive as in "vacuum." Yeah, the first vacuum skins introduced a few years ago had issues — failure to adhere in cold or wet conditions. That's not good. So we took our time and we fixed it before launching our new dual zone vacuum skins. Dual zones? What does that mean? It means we designed skins with a very strong molecular adhesion force on the edges and at the tips and tails for solid hold to your skis and prevention of snow infiltration and eventual hold failure. But if we used that extra strong adhesive force on the entire base of the skins, then they would lose one of there primary advantages over glue skins — especially with wide skis and skins — namely removing them from the skis when you are ready to descend, and even more difficult, separating them from themselves when folded up in storage.

The dual zone technology solves all that. It provides the secure all conditions, all temperature hold of glue skins, while providing the hassle free handling of vacuum skins. Hagan's dual zones skins are tested and proven. The technology works. Try them. You will be convinced!

Vacuum skins provide some another huge advantage over glue skins: cleaning and re-gluing. But let's save the details of that for another blog post.
