Product Description

Avy gear, breathable outerwear, and energy gel are damn near useless if your climbing skins leave you struggling to keep up with the pack (argh … that’s the fifth time the skin has popped off the tip of your ski). Enter the G3 Women’s Alpinist elle Climbing Skins.

Innovative tip connector features pivoting (self-aligning) steel hands mounted on a curved, low-profile polyurethane crossbar, so the skin doesn't get kicked off as you ascend
Tail strap laminated directly into skin fabric creates a strong, low-profile bond that improves glide performance and reduces weight
Fast gliding plush fabric is lightweight and supple for enhanced performance G3’s glue formula works exceptionally in all snow conditions
Ripstrip thin film placed on the sticky side makes it easier to pull the skin apart when folded


Material: Synthetic plush; non-toxic, solvent-free adhesive Tail Attachment: Adjustable polyurethane strap Weight: [X-short] 14.5-23.2oz (411-656g); [Short] 15.2-24.5oz (431-694g); [Medium] 15.9-25.8oz (451-732g); [Long] 16.6-27.1oz (471-769g); [X-long] 17.3-28.5oz (492-807g) Recommended Use: Alpine touring, telemark, backcountry Manufacturer Warranty:
