Getting the fat boys up the hill requires some width on the skins or the smooth surface will outweigh the skin surface and the skis will slip backwards as the slope gets steep. At 130 mm of width, these G3 Alpinist Climbing Skins have a plush nylon surface than delivers a smooth, fast glide uphill and enough girth to provide reliable traction in tour mode. This saves a lot of energy, especially is wetter spring conditions. The Alpinist Climbing Skins' tail clip fits snugly over the ski's back end for confident attachment, and the articulated tip clips can be positioned to securely fit any ski shape. G3's selection of a glue that adheres to skis in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius shows they are serious about this stuff.
