Some people just want to go up
Why skin switchbacks when you can go straight up? G3’s Alpinist High Traction skins can increase traction over the flagship Alpinist by 10 to 20% on steep and hard packed surfaces. They’re a great skin for those who like to set an aggressive skin track, or often find themselves skinning on hardpack. G3 achieves this grip by lengthening the hairs on it’s Alpinist models. The drawback is that this method creates a less packable skin that has slightly less glide.
The Alpinist High Traction skins utilize G3’s low profile tip connector that automatically centers and adjusts to virtually any ski tip. The tail clip is made with a laminated tail to reduce drag and the adhesive is temperature tolerant, so it remains sticky in the cold. Don’t worry though, the glue is never so sticky that getting the skins apart becomes a chore, thanks to the glueless RipStrip.
