SCALA & NEW SCALA LT CLIMBING SKINS

SCALA & NEW SCALA LT CLIMBING SKINS

The SCALA family of climbing skins feature G3's innovative Hybrid Tip Connector for improved glide and efficiency on the skin track. They are engineered to increase glide, keep snow from creeping under the skin, and break trail like a beauty—all while focusing your grip where you need it.

G3 UNIVERSITY | Where Does Grip Come From?

G3 UNIVERSITY | Where Does Grip Come From?

Skins that cover the entire base of your skis are overkill. Most of your skin’s grip comes from just a few dozen centimetres under the binding while fabric on the tip and tail creates unnecessary drag. Exposed ski base and alternative materials can significantly improve glide and efficiency without affecting that all-important grip.

DESIGN PROCESS

DESIGN PROCESS

It started with the idea of improving glide without affecting grip. Using historical testing data and developing new tests we then explored exactly where your grip comes from and what that means for the uphill experience. We found that certain materials in the non-grip zones can significantly decrease drag and friction when compared to standard skin plush fabric.

NO MORE SNOW CREEP

NO MORE SNOW CREEP

The stiff material of the SCALA tips with their glueless back keeps snow from creeping under the leading edge of your skin, allowing for multiple laps and long days without loss of adhesion.

WHY SCALES?

WHY SCALES?

The scale pattern on SCALA climbing skins is precisely engineered to maximize grip when the tip is engaged on the skintrack. The pattern improves side-to-side control on sidehills and in technical applications.

AWARDED FOR INNOVATION

AWARDED FOR INNOVATION

We don't make gear to get awards. We make gear to improve and amplify the backcountry experience. But we are always happy when independent testers recognize that our products do just that.

G3 is always coming out with innovative new ways to take climbing skins to new heights and the Scala is a great example of that.
