Skin straight up that boot pack, just because you can.

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.

What's Included: All G3 Alpinist skins come with a G3 Trim Tool, G3 Skin Savers, and G3's new Skin Wallet.
