The 8 Best Splitboard Skins of 2021-2022

Splitboarders often put in their time researching before throwing down serious money to get that newly redesigned board, or some ultralight splitboard bindings. Unfortunately, splitboard skins can then become an afterthought, and suddenly they find themselves running to the store the night before they leave for that hut trip to grab a pair. Several days of fumbling with skins that don’t match up well with their board shape follow. Or the skins don’t have the glide and grip level they need for their style touring. Don’t make the same mistake and go down this path. Instead focus on getting the best splitboard skins for your setup and needs.

While splitboarding is a newer activity than ski touring, it’s getting harder to tell each year as the gear continues to advance in leaps and bounds, and this includes splitboarding skins. Factors you’ll need to consider include the tip and tail clip design as you’ll want to make sure it works well with your splitboard shape. A variety of skin blends give different options that focus on weight, grip, and glide. Material and treatment technologies are focused on keeping skins sticky and dry, while still being environmentally responsible. Here are the best splitboard skins of 2022, so getting up that slope and transitioning to downhill mode takes zero effort.
