KOHLA skins for high alpine terrain & performance-oriented touring made of 100% mohair. 

Extensive ski touring in open terrain and up to the highest peaks provide the requirements for touring skins made of pure mohair. Touring skiers who are ambitious and also compete are also well served with our skins. 

Pure Mohair - What does that mean? 

The fine hairs of the Angora goat are used for this type of touring skins. The fibers are hollow on the inside and provide the optimal gliding and climbing properties even at low temperatures.  Pure mohair skins are NOT suitable for so-called " slope touring ", the fine hollow fibers wear out quickly in hard artificial snow.

Die KOHLA Greenline - the environmentally friendly coat care system

The Kohla Green Line care series consists of environmentally conscious, sustainable and biodegradable care products for climbing skins. The Green Line includes four different products. The Skin Impregnation care product is an ideal wax for all ski touring skins and fell skis. The ski wax makes the skins faster and prevents clogging. The Skin & Ski Base Cleaner is a universal cleaner for ski skins and bases. The Anti Snow can be applied to the ski surface and ski touring boot. This reduces snow adhesion and the snow does not stick to the ski surface. The fourth product in the Green Line is Skin wax. It is rubbed on over the entire surface to prevent tarnishing.

The Kohla Alpinist climbing skin

No summit is high enough for you? The ALPINIST climbing skin is ideal for alpine ski touring in the high mountains, as well as off-piste - even at low temperatures! The pure mohair fur provides the best climbing and gliding properties and offers perfect grip even on cold days.

User and area of application

The Kohla Alpinist climbing skins are suitable for ski tourers who want to go high. In the high mountains and off-piste, these skins are used. The Alpinist is available as a pre-assembled skin, universal skin as well as a splitboard variant.

Base material

The so-called velour of the Alpinist skins consists of 100% mohair. The KOHLA Fiberseal technology not only impresses with its waterproof skin structure, which completely prevents water absorption, but is also extremely robust and therefore perfect for high-altitude ski touring. Adhesive layer The Kohla Alpinist ski touring skins use the newly developed Smart Glue. This adhesive layer is specially adapted to low temperatures and provides grip even in sub-zero temperatures thanks to its excellent adhesive strength.

Tensioning system

The Alpinist climbing skin is available with a pre-mounted tensioning system, as a universal skin and for splitboards. 

Adaptable fastening system (pre-mounted skin) 

This system is used with most Kohla skins - as well as with the Alpinist ski touring skin. It offers a variable attachment option at the front depending on the ski (e.g. with hole or slot). At the front is the bracket holding system with pre-mounted T-Bar 85, which is hooked onto the tip of the touring ski. Depending on the type of ski, the Z-Hook (for skis with a hole,) the I-Fix (for skis with a slot) or the T-Bar 110 (for wide skis) can be hooked in here. At the rear of the clamping system, the sewn Elastic Strap ensures that the skin can also be fixed there and this does not slip off when ascending. 


To fix the skin on twin tip skis or splitboards with rounded or asymmetrical ski ends, there is an adapted solution. In this case, Kohla supplies the Alpinist Universal climbing skin or the Alpinist Splitboard skin (asymmetrical laser cut) with Multi-Clip System. The skin is shortened and cut to the right length with the help of a template and the Elastic Strap is fixed. There are videos and instructions for this on the website.

Using the Alpinist skin

When using the Alpinist Fell, there are a few important points to keep in mind. In our product videos, stories and FAQs you will find more interesting facts and explanations on the topics of care, storage, etc.

During the ski tour 

During the tour, it is important to check again and again whether the tensioning system holds well - otherwise, if necessary, a readjustment must be made. Since the Alpinist climbing skin is equipped with Smart Glue technology, the rule applies that it can be skinned without a protective intermediate layer - but it is still recommended to use a release liner. 

After the ski tour

As with all skins, the Alpinist climbing skin must be unrolled and hung to dry in a well-ventilated area. Do not lay out the fur directly on the heater or the oven, because this puts too much strain on the mohair. A rotary dryer, for example, is better suited here. 

Skin care

After a few tours, it can happen that the Alpinist climbing skin becomes dirty or bulges. Pilling means that the snow sticks to the bottom of the skin, making progress more difficult. High time to care for the skin! Kohla offers a range of care products to solve any problems.
