More traction for more climbing, and that means more powder.

G3 improved upon its legendary climbing skin design by using plush, high-traction synthetic material on the base of the High Traction Splitboard Skin. Compared to previous skins, the high-friction material offers a 10- to 20-percent increase in traction on steep, hard-packed surface. Couple this increase in climbing ability with tip connectors that give this skin a glove-like fit, and you get the ideal solution for ditching the lift crowds in favor of untouched lines.

  • Tip connectors have a curved shape for the most secure fit and low profile that won't catch on the snow when you're skinning
  • Stainless steel connector hands swivel in order to self-align once they're clipped into place
  • G3 adhesive holds the skin securely in place but peels off easily when it's time to descend
  • Adhesive is solvent-free so you don't have to worry about polluting the snow or affecting the wax on your base

Way too long unfortunately! You really need the medium.

Spider Skins

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These skins grip very well, I have a Lib Tech T Rice that is reverse camber dominant so I needed a very grippy skin to make up for the decreased contact surface on the snow. The cutting tool was very easy to use. They do not glide as well as the alpines but this can be a good thing for me if I need to ski down a small slope because I am not a good skier :) I have a 161.5 and got the medium and they fit great. Cons: the fibers come loose pretty easily and a lot of them are stuck to the glue. The tip connecters can make it hard to get them straight when putting them on. Overall, great skins that will get you up the steep shiz.

I have a pair of crj's 180cm 126/115/124 what size would you recommend

You will want to go with a Large. These skins will come with a trimming tool so you can trim to fit the width of your ski.

Aren't these for splitboards? They won't work with skis I don't think.

Can i use L size with 164cm board?

Responded on

Thanks for your question!

Unfortunately, a large size will fit to a board within the lengths of 168-182cm.

Great skin, quality build

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used these only a handful of times, but I really like them. I had the BC branded G3 Alpinist skins before. These are a little thicker, hairs are a little longer and come with nice skin savers. I am looking forward to using them more and hopefully they are more traction as they claim to be. I was able to use them to around 25 degree angle, maybe more, before they started slipping. IT is quite possible that my skinning technique needs improving :) They seem to be very well built and have been over several kinds of temps, snow, rocks (crappy trail) and mud with no complaints.

Great climbing skin

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a medium for my 161 carbon but I can also use these on my 156 hovey. I would recommend following the manufacturers size ranges but this does work for me. These skins have been in the quiver going on their second season. The glue held up really well through heavy use last winter then in south america this summer I noticed some glue sticking to the base. It's time for some new glue on this set. I didn't take very good care of these in these. In the summer months preceding SA they were rolled up in a very hot truck as I road tripped across the country. I think this had a lot to do with the glue going bad after 1 1/2 seasons. Im still really impressed by these for their climbing potential. You can go strait up pretty much whatever you want, which is not always a good thing as I found out in Chile but thats another story. The major difference aside from the climbing potential between this skin and the alpinist is the glide. This skin offers almost no glide on flats and you need a decent slope to get them going and ski down. This is a trade off though, if you tour with billly goats get these skins, if you want to conserve energy on the flats or have long approaches to get to your zones these are not the skin for you.
