Why G3?

Why G3?

G3's dedication to climbing skin evolution for over 20 years comes together with ALPINIST+ and SPLITBOARD+, two complete lines of high performance climbing skins that fit the ideal balance of GRIP and GLIDE for any given backcountry situation, anywhere, anytime.

FEATURING AN UPDATED ADHESIVE
Climbing skin adhesive is best when you never notice it and it just works the way you expect it. So many variables can affect the way your adhesive performs, and we are constantly working to improve the product so it is prepared for any scenario. The updated adhesive in all ALPINIST+ and SPLITBOARD+ skins features a refined formula engineered to let you do more laps and cover more terrain without having to worry about your skins.

BEST-IN-CLASS PLUSH FABRICS

BEST-IN-CLASS PLUSH FABRICS

UNIVERAL - Any location and all conditions. Universal nylon plush material is durable and versatile. Optimal balance of grip, glide, weight and durability.

GRIP - Maximum grip and traction ideal for steep ascents and icy skin tracks. High-traction nylon plush material for durability and versatility.

GLIDE - All-purpose, go-anywhere skin built for cold and dry conditions with improved waterproofing. 70% mohair for optimal glide and 30% nylon for added durability.

SPEED - Our lightest and fastest skin excels in cold and dry conditions. 100% mohair plush material with improved waterproofing increases glide and overall speed in the mountains.

UNRIVALED TIP &TAIL CONNECTION

UNRIVALED TIP &TAIL CONNECTION

The innovative, patented tip and tail connectors in all G3 skins create a lightweight, solid and reliable connection to your skis or board. The self-aligning hands fit easily on any shape, and the camming tails on all ALPINIST+ and SPLITBOARD+ skins are super easy to attach and remove in all conditions.

NO MORE SNOW CREEP
The stiff material of the ALPINIST+ tip creates a rigid platform that keeps snow from creeping under the skin and extends the use of your adhesive.

EASY TRANSITIONS & BOMBER CONNECTION
G3’s low profile, elongated tail strap makes transitions fast and easy. The refined camming clip stays positioned on the ski, reduces wear and allows for easy adjustments.

WHERE DOES GRIP COME FROM?

WHERE DOES GRIP COME FROM?

It’s one of the seemingly endless questions we ask to challenge the status quo of climbing skin design. Skins that cover the entire base of your skis are overkill and heavy. 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.
