While almost any skin on the market today relies solely on a tightly weaved and threaded hair; whether nylon, mohair or some other synthetic material, Fischer however, has a new state of the art design that will change how we see skins. With the introduction of Profoil technology, you can now climb any peak and traverse any flat without worrying about globbing or losing traction. By using a plastic crown cut base, Profoil skins will remain dry and gripped as long as they are in use. No need to ever worry about heavy, wet spring conditions. A bonus to using plastic in the material is the fact these skins pack flat and with minimal weight to make for the most conveniently packed skin on the market.
