Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Mountains. Groomed tracks. Why choose?

Strong enough to handle rough terrain and hard conditions yet perfectly at home on the groomed tracks, the Mountain Race 48 Skin is a ski for the quicker adventure.

The Mountain Race 48 Skin comes equipped with the Pomoca Climb 2.0 integrated climbing skin, offering excellent grip and unimpeded glide. The ski’s prominent wax pocket, moderate sidecut and 3/4 steel edges offer stability and control on the descent.

Constructed with a core of paulownia wood for strength and weight and 48mm at the waist, the Mountain Race 48 Skin weighs a remarkable 1550g per pair for the 200cm skis – perfect for leaving the groomed tracks to break trails.

The ski is also built with Skinlock, allowing the instant attachment of the X-Skin, making it possible to climb more demanding hills and negotiate demanding terrain.

Choosing the right length

Ski length is determined according to body weight and height. The table below is only a guide, however – experience, skill, terrain and individual needs can all influence your choice of length.

Generally speaking, moving through rugged terrain calls for shorter skis than the open mountain plateau. And for beginners, short skis are easier to control. If you’re mainly skiing along tracks, length isn’t the most crucial factor. For good float on deep snow, a slighter wider ski is useful. Lighter skiers might consider a shorter ski; heavier skiers a longer ski. Skiers with loads such as backpacks and sledges might consider a longer ski.

Body length Weight (kg) Ski length
-170 cm -70 180
170-180 70-80 190
180-190 80-90 200
190+ 90+ 210

Ski length

Length is determined based on body length and weight. The table here is intended as an aid and must not be followed slavish. Skills, terrain, weight, backpack and individual needs / habits are factors that influence the choice of length.

General advice: Skiing rough terrain requires shorter skis than open mountain areas. For beginners, it will often be easier with short skis. If the person is lighter than average, the user should consider shorter skis, and vice versa. If you often got heavy load (pulk/sledge), the ski should be a bit longer.
