Skeats Skin Cleats are small, light and packable crampons for your Splitsurfer, Approach skis, Splitboard or Touring Skis. They are super light, easy to pack and quickly strap to the base of your skis or boards in seconds. Skin cleats will give you significant extra traction while skinning up the fall-line. Excellent traction for icy, steep climbs. They will also help for performance on icy sidehill slopes.
– Fewer switchbacks! The spikes on the Skeats skin cleats give your skins much greater grip and allow you to make skin tracks that do not require nearly as many switch backs. Think of ascending the slope in an elongated and partial S, as opposed to a Z. This should allow you to move more efficiently over slick terrain without side-hilling as much. We have been rounding out our skin tracks to avoid side-hilling and to take a straighter line up the fall line.
