Whether you're trying to get some pre-work laps in or you're out on a multi-day mission, G3's Alpinist Plus Glide Skin provides reliable traction and a smooth glide so you can move as efficiently as possible. The mohair and nylon blend material offers a perfect combination of grip, glide, and durability, and though the Glide is designed with cold, dry conditions in mind, improved waterproofing prevents the skin from absorbing water and icing up. G3 has refined its adhesive, meaning that you can rely on the stickiness of the Glide, even after multiple laps and long ascents, while the self-aligning tip attachment easily fits on any shape of ski, and prevents any snow from creeping under the skin and compromising the adhesive. Complete with a camming tail clip and elongated strap for further skin security and quick transitions, you'll be able to charge quickly and confidently up the steepest parts of your route.
The G3 Alpinist+ Glide Climbing Skins have perhaps the best balance of grip, glide and durability in the G3 lineup. They excel in dry conditions with their 70% mohair and 30% nylon plush, and feature G3's new minimalist TPU tip system with proven self-adjusting steel hands.
