Alpinist Elle Skins are the next level in climbing skin performance for women(or guys who like green). Lighter, faster gliding and equipped with an innovative patent pending tip connection, Alpinist Skins are the choice when performance is the only option. G3 says: Our goal was to create a climbing skin that meets the unique needs of female skiers. We started with our revolutionary Alpinist Climbing Skin and added the new RipStrip to make the skins easier to us in the field. The RipStrip reduces skin to skin adhesion, making the Alpinist Elle quick and easy to pull apart, reducing transition time. WIth the lightweight, fast gliding, easy to handle Alpinist Elle Skins underfoot, women will be moving quicker and easier, working with their skins instead of fighting with them and saving energy for the downhill. And isn't that the way it should be? Outstanding Features: Easily trimmed to fit New Laminated tail features the dependable G3 Tail connection system, only with less weight and drag.

Straight There are two schools of thought on the selection and fit of g3 climbing skins, shaped or straight. Shaped: [list] You can get maximum skin coverage by choosing a skin that is slightly narrower than the widest par of your ski, and trimming the skin to the sidecut/shape of your ski, as described int the skin instructions(in the box when you buy a pair). The extra work required to trim will more than make up for itself with the superior grip of a skin with "wall to wall" coverage, especially importan for icy sidehilling. Choose the skin that covers your ski base 'Wall to Wall" (edge to edge) about 25cm (10in) back from the ski tip. E.g. If the dimensions of your skis are 115-77-105, a pair of 110 skins will do nicely. Straight: To avoid trimming, choose a skin to fit the narrowest part of your ski. This set-up is lighter, glides better and eliminates the possibility of contaminating exposed glue when storing skins. Straight skins are also easier to fold for packing and storage. E.g. If the dimensions of your skis are 115-77-105, a pair of 70mm skins will do the trick. Every pair of G3 High Performance Climbing Skins is equipped with a Brand New really cool G3 trim tool and specific instructions for fitting your skis
