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.

I don't read French (my German is fair), but I know how to use web translators. According to the inter web, this is what the French Montagnes Magazine said about the Hagan Boost 94: (excerpts, click the link below to read the entire review in French)

  • The Big Surprise of this Season
  • excellent stability even at high speeds
  • A model that is not unlike the behaviour of the Salomon Explore 95 but with greater rigidity.
  • This ski becomes our favourite of this 2020 range
  • slips very clearly in the first place of these tests.
  • enormous carbon-filled shovel erases all the roughness of the terrain 
  • unparalleled driving comfort in deep or trafficked snow
  • turns are easy to make

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:

Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!
