Climbing Skins Product Information
Size: Unisex 115mm - Medium
Retail Cost: $168.00
When it comes to climbing skins, there's no room for existential questions that sound a whole lot like "to stick or not to stick"â€”the role is simple: stay sticky. And while its name may be a dead giveaway, the G3 Alpinist Climbing Skin accomplishes the aforementioned task with flying colors. Additionally, the Alpinist Climbing Skin boasts a newly redesigned, lower-profile (than in previous editions) stainless steel hands that assure a better ski fit and reduced tip-catch.
However, in keeping with its original design, the Alpinist features plush nylon material that bites into everything from soft powder to nasty, compacted skintracks. G3's classic Alpinist got a facelift this season with a removable Ripstrip on the adhesive side, which reduces skin-to-skin adhesion for easier pull-aparts during transitions, but it can also be removed when you need some extra sticking power if your skin glue starts to ice over, or gets a little dirty drying in the hut. The skins are treated with a hydrophobic coating (that's also PFOA free) to prevent ice build up, and their glue is rated to perform in temperatures down to -22F.
There is no question. (DWNZGSY)
