G3 skins have been a perennial favorite in the Pacific Northwest for many seasons. It’s easy to understand why; dependable glue, reliable tip and tail attachments, and grippy, long-lasting plush. In an effort to improve upon the success of their formulations, G3 has introduced the Alpinist+ line of skins which has advancements not found on their original skins.
The Alpinist+ Glide skin is a 70/30 Mohair + Nylon mix skin. The plush has been reworked from G3’s original formulation for improved glide characteristics without compromising grip or lifespan. In addition to the plush, G3 has added their Scala tip technology which improves glide while breaking trail and prevents snow from creeping up under glue in the tip. With so much effort toward improving their skins, you almost have to give them a try!
