Gecko - the top class touring skin
Gecko stands for highest quality and innovation in touring skins.
The Gecko 140 mm splitboard skin offers you 100 % mohair, for best gliding properties and an adhesive layer that does not need glue. This makes the adhesive layer extremely temperature resistant. Fluctuations from +250 °C to -70 °C are easy to handle for this system.
Gecko skins can be used on waxed and unwaxed surfaces and a silicone layer prevents unwanted moisture absorption.
Pulling the skins apart is super easy thanks to the glue-less system, and no extra protective film is needed to store the skins.
If the adhesive layer is damaged, a subsequent coating is possible without any problems. Gecko also offers you a full 2 year warranty on the coating.
Environmental influences such as moisture and snow do not play a role when skinning. Ice crystals can be easily removed by hand heat or careful peeling over the edge of the snowboard. Afterwards you can immediately skin up again.
Any contamination can be cleaned completely with lukewarm soapy water using a soft sponge. As a result, the adhesive layer regenerates itself each time.
The lamination is applied by Gecko on the entire surface. This prevents moisture absorption at the lateral edges and on the backing material of the mohair. This way you don't have to worry about your skins getting soaked and freezing in low temperatures and no longer providing grip.
This layer also binds the mohair. This makes it impossible to pull out the hair.
The 100 % mohair is woven at a slant of approx. 45°, thus preventing tipping in the ascent and achieving the best gliding and climbing properties. A special dip impregnation seals the mohair fabric and prevents long-term moisture absorption.
The cutting of the skins is very easy with the corresponding cutting tool.
