    Alpinist Plus Glide Skin

    Whether you're trying to get some pre-work laps in or you're out on a multi-day mission, G3's Alpinist Plus Glide Skin provides reliable traction and a smooth glide so you can move as efficiently as possible. The mohair and nylon blend material offers a perfect combination of grip, glide, and durability, and though the Glide is designed with cold, dry conditions in mind, improved waterproofing prevents the skin from absorbing water and icing up.

    G3 has refined its adhesive, meaning that you can rely on the stickiness of the Glide, even after multiple laps and long ascents, while the self-aligning tip attachment easily fits on any shape of ski, and prevents any snow from creeping under the skin and compromising the adhesive. Complete with a camming tail clip and elongated strap for further skin security and quick transitions, you'll be able to charge quickly and confidently up the steepest parts of your route.

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

    On paper these skins look amazing, and I was psyched to get them cut and on the track. However, I feel the quality control on these skins is subpar, as the plastic shovel bit is misaligned with the rest of the skin. This makes aligning both the plastic shovel bit and the tail clip impossible, as they are cut off kilter. I ended up cutting the skin with the tail strap dead center, but the plastic shovel and skin were pretty off kilter, so I had to cut some of the overhanging plastic shovel too.

    I havent toured with it yet, but I hope it works out. If it does, id say its 4 star worthy.
