Skins for Surface Balance
Hi, I'm currently on surface balances and I got a pair of used touring bindings for theem. I'm looking at skins but I'm unsure what I can run because of the fat tip and tail. Ideas?
You dont need a skin that fully covers the tip and tail, particularly with shape profile of the balance. You need a skin at least as wide as your ski is under foot.
so a 130mm skin would probably work out just fine... but you could just as easily rock a 145mm skin.
If weight isn't a concern, I would go with a 145mm skin. You will appreciate the additional coverage.
those skis have so little base in contact with the snow (symmetrical rocker, zero camber). not gonna matter.
All times are Eastern (-5)
