2015 Alpinist Splitboard High Traction Climbing Skins

Sale price $199.95 Regular price $159.96 CAD

These are last winter's climbing skins (2015/16), available in limited quantities at clearance pricing. 

What: Superior traction for steep climbs or tricky, hard pack surfaces.
Who: Riders headed for steeper climbs or seeking stronger grip. Popular choice for many splitboarders.

This High Traction version of our flagship Alpinist fabric offers exceptional traction that's especially well-suited for splitboard travel. Odds are you've been eyeing up those steep backcountry yo-yo lines more often than a flat 10 day traverse, so we've made skins to get you to the next peak without the slip 'n slop.

Our High Traction skins can increase traction by 10-20% on steep, hard pack surfaces, depending on snow conditions. Now you can focus on dropping in, not catching up.
