G3 is the usual instigator behind backcountry innovation, but the Scala Climbing Skins are unlike anything skiers have seen. Field-tested for improvement, the Scala's unique Hybrid Tip Connector is proven to provide better glide and overall efficiency on the skintrack, whether you're setting it or not. Its scale pattern enhances grip when the tip is engaged on the skinner, and it enhances side-to-side control on harder surfaces. The tip's subtle tweak also reduces snow buildup when you're breaking trail through powdery delights. Expect more compact convenience when you pack these skins in your pack. G3 included a trim tool that allows you trim the tip as easily as the skins themselves.
