HAGAN climbing skin care products

Hagan's 2 Zone Composite climbing skin are the most advanced climbing skins in the world, and a Hagan exclusive. Hagan’s composite vacuum skin combines performance and easy handling in one product. The 2 Zone Composite innovation increases the power of the vacuum adhesion along the edges and lowers it in the middle. This makes the climbing skin easier to use, lighter and gives it a distinct look.

Adhesion skins are based on the principle of a vacuum between the skin surface structure and the ski base. Early glue-free skins had several advantages, but users found snow infiltrated between the edges of the skins and the base, ultimately leading to skin failure. Feedback from users of early versions of adhesion skins was to increase the skin adhesion to prevent snow infiltration. We found increasing the adhesion properties on the entire skin surface an unacceptable option, because it introduces handling disadvantages — the skins become too hard to separate in their stored state. Instead, we engineered a solution that solves the snow infiltration issue without creating handling difficulties. We created a 2 Zone composite adhesion system. We mix two zones — very strong adhesion along the edges with reduced adhesion in the center — to make skin security very high without handling difficulties.

Ski mountaineering climbing skins are a critical accessory which must be trustworthy and efficient. Climbing and gliding performance are crucial, and user friendliness makes a huge difference. Everyone is happy when skins separate easily. No one is happy if the glue or adhesion fail in difficult conditions. The trick is to create adhesion that is strong in the key edge, tip and tail areas without making stored skins too difficult to separate. Hagan’s 2 Zone Composite technology addresses these demands optimally. It is the perfect solution. And the solution is clearly visible due to separate red and blue adhesion areas.

We guarantee a unique product, 100% made in Austria, developed by our engineers and based on input and feedback from our athletes and customers.
