    Splitboard + Grip Climbing Skin

    Out of all the splitboard skins that G3 sells, the Splitboard + Grip Climbing Skin by far has the best grip. This skin is ideal for splitboarders who tend to ride icier, steeper terrain, or any backcountry beginner who's constantly slipping on the skin track. Its proprietary nylon material is surprisingly light and supple to pack with ease. The asymmetric tip connector clips around the inside-corner of each splitboard for a secure fit, and the new tail connector can cam into a tight fixation so you don't have to pull it tight. G3 refined its skin adhesive this year to reduce glopping overtime, and you can rip off the center strip when you want more adhesion after a few seasons.

    • Splitboard skin maximizes grip and traction for steep, icy terrain
    • Nylon material is light, supple, and G3's grippiest option
    • Asymmetrical tip connector and camming tail connector self-align
    • Non-toxic adhesive with removable rip strip
    • Trim tool, skin saver, and case included

    Decent But Still Sliding Backwards

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Overall these skins work. However, I find over a certain steepness, I start to slide backwards. I used the BC high traction skins with a previous splitboard and did not have this problem. Could be my weight, could be my technique, could be the reverse camber board profile, but either way sliding backwards is no fun and sucks a lot of energy. Hoping to find a better option with more grip.

    simplicity for the win

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I like that there's no extra fancy stuff, just you and some grip and some glue. They pack tight, don't get bent or anything. nice

    To The Top

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These skins will get you to the top without any slipping, and they don't leave glue on your ski. Perfection in a skin.

    Skins for the win

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These skins always handle the job and i'm a huge fan of the skin savers always keeping my glue sticky!

    As advertised

      We have had quite a few sets over the years. They do great all around!

      Traction

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love these skins because they do exactly as advertised. I was out with a buddy of mine who did not have these same skins and I was able to make it up steep pitches with no problem, while my buddy had to abort the track, take off his planks and hike the steeper sections. I am also a huge fan of them including the trim tool and skin savers. The tool made cutting the skins super easy and the skin savers make it very easy to unravel the skins for the next tour plus allow your glue the chance to stay sticky. The included storage bag is great for keeping everything organized inside my pack. I usually tour short, steep sections, so the Grip is perfect for my terrain! Let me know if you have any questions on these skins or other splitboard related questions!
