The same great features as the Alpinist, with some extra fun in the graphic pattern.

Our premium Alpinist High Traction skins have been engineered from tip to tail to be the lightest, fastest gliding, best climbing and most secure climbing skin available. The elle features the same great features as our other Alpinist High Traction skins, with a fun and fresh graphic pattern on the plush. The elle was actually what spawned our RipStrip non-adhesive strip which makes it easier to pull the skins apart. It worked so well we applied it to all our Alpinist skins.
