G3ALPINIST UNIVERSAL CLIMBING SKINS G3 Redesigned their Fan favorite Alpinist skin to bring you the Alpinist+. The New G3 skin has overhauled all the old attributes and provided a solid upgrade. From fixing the Nylon skin, the adhesive material, and a refined camming clip in the tail. The new designed Nylon provides a slick nylon material for a smooth glide and sticky skin that allows you to slide effortlessly through the skin track and up steep terrain. The nylon has been spaced in a manner across the skin to allow for a smoother step, with more nylon underfoot for grip and thinner threads in the tip and tail to reduce drag. The Adhesive on the Alpinist+ has seen a huge improvement, with a PFOA free waterproofing and freezing temps of -22 F. The Skin will hold better grip and avoid grabbing extra snow and losing it’s stickiness over multiple laps. As an added bonus the Alpinist+ has an added snow scoop in the front of the skin, to provide a protective barrier between the adhesive and the snow. FEATURES: No More Snow Creep: New tip connector with extended TPU tip and self-aligning stainless steel hands for a secure, lightweight connection and superior glide while trailbreaking. Bomber Tail Connector: 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. Removable Rip Strip: Reduces skin-to-skin adhesion, making it easier to pull apart skins. New this year, if your glue gets contaminated on an epic traverse, you can remove the strip for extra adhesion. Trim Tool and Skin Saver Included: Fastest and simplest trim tool available. Premium Plush: Proprietary lightweight, fast gliding, supple yet super durable nylon plush. All New Non-Toxic Adhesive: Updated adhesive features a refined formula engineered to let you do more laps and cover more terrain without having to worry about your skins.
