SKINTEC REVOLUTIONIZES GRIP
ATOMIC's revolutionary Skintec grip technology comprises two interchangeable skin inlays for cross-country skiers. These grip modules can be inserted into or removed from the grip zone in one easy motion. Making the unique Skintec system a hugely effective time-saving device, because a classic ski can be transformed for use in all conditions without the need for waxing. Never before have cross-country skiers been able to use the narrow windows between family and work so effectively.
One easy motion, two skin inlays and three magnetic points: that's all you'll ever need this season to be perfectly prepared for any cross-country trail. Depending on the snow conditions and temperature, two different high-performance grip modules with full-length or split skin inlays can be inserted into the special slots, where three magnets hold them firmly in place. Skintec helps to produce explosive kicks and extra-long glide phases, which the classic ski of the same name is able to maximize on cross-country trails thanks to a World Cup base and symmetrical camber. The skin modules are made of premium-quality, water-resistant mohair and are protected from icing up.
Outstanding performance and easy handling make Skintec skis the first choice for ambitious athletic and race-oriented cross-country skiers looking for a versatile training and race ski – and who prefer to invest their energy in speed rather than waxing.
