Secure Attachment

G3’s tail clip elevates the leading climbing skin to an even higher level. The overcentre camming clip stays positioned on the tail strap, reduces tail strap wear and allows for easier adjustment and tensioning of the skin.

Secure Attachment

Most Secure Tip Attachment

Patented laminated tip connectors with low profile, self-aligning stainless steel hands for the most secure attachment available.

“Good climbing skins are a critical part of your backcountry setup.”
