Ultra 65 Race Climbing Skins - Completely New for 2018/2019

Climb on the fastest race skins – with Hybrid Adhesion technology for the fastest transitions!

  • Totally new for 2018/19. Get the latest generation in adhesive technology – the first ever hybrid twin layer adhesive system! The outer layer sticks the skin firmly to the ski even at low temperatures and is removed with ease without leaving any residue on the ski base. The inner layer binds the upper layer of adhesive to the skin backing. The Hybrid Adhesion technology creates lightning fast transitions and exceptionally easy handling and maintenance.

    Knots in the wide-diameter bungee tip securely hook into the Y-shaped tip notch on the Ultra 65 ski for fast and easy removal of climbing skins without taking off your skis. The bungee cord is stronger and more durable than competitors and eliminates the need for the rattling washers.

    The Ultra 65 climbing skins are specifically designed for racing with thin, grippy, water-resistant 100% mohair plush; a special mohair treatment to improve glide; and a thin and lightweight backing. The new race skins are a natural, un-dyed creamy white color, fresh off the Angora goat's back. I've heard it claimed un-dyed climbing skins are faster than colored skins. How that can be, I'm not sure. But hey, if its faster, lets go with it. 

    Ultra 65 Race Skins are the lightest, fastest racing skins available. Testing shows them to be amongst the fastest gliding skins on the market. More importantly, they have excellent climbing grip, superior to other mohair race skins. The easy handling hybrid adhesion, combined with bungee tip attachments and the Y-shaped skin notches on the HAGAN Ultra 65 skis, create the fastest and easiest transitions in the world. HAGAN Ultra 65 race climbing skins are the perfect match for Ultra 65 skis, creating  the ultimate system for fast ascents and ultra quick transitions.

    Hybrid Adhesion Advantages:

    • perfect ski base adhesion even in low temperatures
    • effortless removal from the ski
    • maintenance-free - no need for reglueing. Tackiness is restored by simply cleaning the adhesive with conventional detergent. Use our hybrid cleaning spray to remove stubborn dirt or wax residue.
    • easy handling as the skins can be folded together and separated with ease. For storage use the backing foil provided to protect the adhesive.
  • HAGAN racing skins are 60mm wide for their entire length, the perfect width to match the Ultra 65 race ski. They provide full width coverage in the crucial for traction under foot zone. The straight cut reduces weight and friction and improves glide. (These skins are the only HAGAN climbing skins straight-cut for their entire length. All other HAGAN climbing skins are tailor cut to match the ski geometry.)

    Race skins are typically used without tail clips. In some situations, the extra security (to prevent "skin failure") of tail clips is in my opinion worth the slight increase in weight and drag. These race skins are provided without tail clips. Tail clips can be ordered and installed separately.

  • Maintenance:

    The tackiness of our hybrid adhesive will only be impaired by dirt on its surface. The adhesive strength can be renewed simply by washing with standard detergent and water. For stubborn dirt and wax residue, our hybrid cleaning spray can be used.

    After significant use, you can renew the water-resistance, anti-icing and glide characteristics of our Race skins with our specially formulated Hagan Dry Climb Skin Treatment. For quick field use, ourHagan Skin Wax will keep your skins from icing or collecting wet snow.
