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 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.

The ALPINIST+ collection is a product of G3's dedicated to climbing skin development and evolution for 20 years. The ALPINIST+ is a complete line of high performance climbing skins that fit the ideal balance of GRIP and GLIDE for any given backcountry situation, anywhere, anytime.
