Created from the minds of mountain guides and backcountry enthusiasts, the G3 Alpinist Climbing Skins are made to a higher standard. Designed to improve the abilities and safety of professionals who live and work in the backcountry, this climbing skin is lightweight and high performance with an innovative tip connector and patented laminated tail strap that makes it super easy to use, while providing a secure fit. Its supple proprietary synthetic griping plush (hairs) deliver a fast glide in rolling terrain and tractor-like traction when pulling a 4000 ft. alpine ascent. A new G3’s tail clip that cams over-center stays in positioned on tail strap, reduces tail strap wear, and allows for easier adjustment and tensioning of skin. Also, a new RipStrip reduces skin-to-skin adhesion making the skins easier to pull apart. The G3 Alpinist Climbing Skins adhesive is temperature tolerant and non-toxic/solvent free.
