On a slightly related note, if your'e a big fan of 'getting out of view of your friends' I highly suggest trying hard boots with Dynafit toe pieces. I felt like I was going twice as fast as normal, and with half the energy. I think this will give far more immediate benefit than which skins you choose, which are always a compromise... my
+1 on this. I know for some, hardboots are a non-starter, but the improvement when touring is really noticeable.
I just picked up some Geckos. As a comparison, I have several seasons on Climbing Skins Direct skins which have worked pretty good. I doubt the glopping issue will be any different, ie still a problem, but we will see.
Let us know on the geckos John, I really want to pick up a set but want to hear from at least one person who's used the new (black) ones. Thanks --
