The compromise between lightweight packability and reliable grip is a perennial challenge that skin makers are trying to address. How much mohair? How much nylon? How much of the bottom of the ski do we want to cover? G3 has been making skins for years, and their Minimist line was created to address that very challenge. The Minimist Glide skin is a 70/30 momix skin that packs the best parts of mohair and nylon into a lightweight package that can be relied upon for big backcountry missions and steep skin tracks. With a new backing material, G3 was able to get these skins to pack up incredibly small. Even more innovative, they inserted a carbon fiber inlay into the tips to make 'em a bit stiffer and prevent snow from creeping under the edges. G3's twin-arm tip attachment fits any ski tip shape, and their 16mm tails clips can be adjusted to fit various ski lengths, or to address skin stretch over time. These skins come pre-cut in various lengths and widths to provide the most tailored fit possible. Don't slip when the skin track gets steep or lug an ounce more than necessary next time you head into the backcountry-- with the G3 Minimist Glide skins, you can have it all.

  • G3 used a unique backing material when building their Minimist line of skins, key to making a functional yet lightweight skin that packs up tightly and compactly.
  • Carbon fiber skin tip eliminates snow creep and keeps the skins stuck to the bottom of your skis, right where they're supposed to be.
  • Tapered tail saves material and increases glide while still providing the reliability of tip and tail attached skins.
  • 70/30 mohair/nylon blend strikes the perfect balance between durability and functional glide.
  • Trim tool and skin savers included.
  • Adhesive rated to -22* F/-30* C.
  • Made in Canada.

Question from Michael M
 
Is the tail strap on these stretchy like the other G3 skins? Or is it a non-elastic fabric? Thanks.

Hey Michael, it is a non-elastic fabric!

Question from Justin
 
How's the glue on these? I have some Climb Pro S-Glides, and I would consider those to have the best glue I have used. BD is too sticky for my taste.

Answer from TSB
 
Hey Justin, we agree that the Pomoca glue is simply magnifique! G3 has recently overhauled their skin glue, which we hope has solved the glomming/oxidizing issues of the past. Here's a video describing G3's new glue compound and how they developed it. The new G3 compound is no doubt less sticky than the BD adhesive.
