Description

Mohair-Mix and match.

The G3 Alpinist Mohair-Mix Skins won't pull you up the hill, but they'd like to. The Mohair-Mix features the speed and grip of mohair and the water-resistant qualities of synthetic skins for an absolutely cruisin' design. G3 integrated the tail and tip clips to reduce tweak-time.

  • Low-profile tip connector uses pivoting hands to fit securely on ski tips and eliminate the extra weight and floppiness of fold-over designs
  • Laminated tail uses G3 tail connection system for less drag
  • Advanced waterproofing treatment prevents clumping when you move through multiple climate zones
  • Temperature-tolerant adhesive remains solid even in extreme cold
  • RipStrip makes for easy peeling and reduces sticking

Does the job but not much more

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my third pair of G3 skins and the first time I've used a ski specific skin for my split board in years. I've previously used the alpinist and high traction and loved them both. This product leaves me wanting more... I've toured about 10 days with them this season and I can already tell they'll only be used for those super long alpine days when light is right for me. They certainly weight less then my previous g3's and will be nice on my light setup but for every day touring they simply won't last a season. They're less durable than other skins I've used, already 2 holes in them presumably from gliding over rocks in our early season snow pack. After using other G3's for 3 and 4 years without this happening I was a little disappointed. The grip is alright, I wouldn't say it's the best skin for areas that have steep roadside attractions like the Wasatch due to the less than ideal grip on icy skin tracks. Go with the high tractions if thats what you're worried about. These skins are a good addition to my lightweight touring setup but not the all around tool I was hoping for.

How dose the grip on the mo-mix compare...

How dose the grip on the mo-mix compare with the alpinist skins? worth the extra glide?

Still Tough to Pull Off!

You can see I still struggle to pull the skins off the base even after 2 years of abuse.

I've been wondering how to do this for years....
Thanks Bill!

You must be the best skier on the mountain!

Have you seen my spread eagles? They are enlightening, steezy and truly amazing.

Responded on

I hereby challenge you to an EAGLE-OFF.

I was renowned in my college years for the width and impressive execution of my spread eagles. Think....before you consider this challenge, as I proclaim myself a very formidable opponent.

Two Years of Abuse and They Still Stick!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used these skins for the past two years. They have been through the thick and the thin to say the least. They are lightweight, pack well, and increase your stride because they glide. I cant believe how sticky the glue still is. I have only had one day where i dropped them in the snow and I had to use my ski edges to clean them. I usually dont even fold them! I just stuff they inside my back. I have used them through almost every condition imagineable, cold, wet, dry, etc. Great pair of skins and their trim tool is the best, hands down.

Alright

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They had decent glide but the traction was pretty bad on steep slopes a lot of slippage went on. I would not recommend to a friend, just go with the classic alpinist skins

You can do better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was happy with these skins until I used them in a sub zero day. Glue? What Glue? The glue may have well been non existent which made things a little frustrating. I've used BD skins in similar weather and did not experience a problem. The one nice thing about the G3 skins is the tail connector. I'm not sold on two small pieces that secure the front of your ski but the tail piece sure is nice.

What is the recommended size for ski length...

What is the recommended size for ski length of 181cm skis, 110 under foot? (115mm, Long or XL?) My skis do not have tail slots for skins, is this style of skin agreeable to that? Recommendations?

Responded on

For total coverage and the most grip you'll want to size off of the tip. If you are looking to save weight then you can size off of the waist at the expense of grip. So for 110 under foot you'd get the 115mm Long which covers a ski 180-190cm in length. The lack of tail slot is fine as long as they are not twin tips. If they are twin tips you will want to get the twin tip connector G3 makes and we sell.

What range of ski lengths does the x-short...

What range of ski lengths does the x-short skin suit?

Are the 130mm short sold out? Or is there...

Are the 130mm short sold out? Or is there just a mistake in the drop down menu? Usually sold out items are still listed as sold out but that option doesn't exist for some reason..

Responded on

Hey there! Yes, unfortunately we are out of stock in the 130mm short, we have the 130mm x-short in stock.

Enjoyed the glide on these skins in colder temperatures...I encountered in the Canadian Rockies....
