Skintec: High-performance grip technology

Atomic Skintec is the premium ski for racers and amateur skiers who prefer not to use wax skis. The Atomic Skintec ensures a reliable kick and fast gliding in all snow conditions and is ideal for quick training sessions, eliminating the need for time-consuming waxing.

With one easy motion the new Atomic Skintec is ready for any cross-country trail. Because the interchangeable Skintec modules are what lend the ski its unrivalled gliding characteristics in all snow conditions. "I've never experienced a waxless ski with so much speed," says long-distance specialist Jørgen Aukland. Like many top athletes, he trains regularly with the new Skintec. But the Skintec is also an attractive alternative for amateur skiers, says Aukland: "In training you save time and in long-distance races it's a huge benefit that the ski works in all snow conditions." Aukland is thinking of the 90 km Vasaloppet, where the conditions can change dramatically between the start and finish: "In terms of waxing you need to know exactly what you're doing if you want to prepare your skis properly. Which is why I keep hearing from more and more amateur skiers how impressed they are by the new Atomic Skintec."
The two Skintec modules are made from high-grade, water-repellent mohair and are protected from icing up.
