Out of all the splitboard skins that G3 sells, the Splitboard + Universal Climbing Skin is by far the most versatile. While mohair skins are better for gliding in cold, dry conditions, and nylon skins give better grip in wetter climates, the Splitboard + Universal Climbing Skin strikes a balance of grip and glide to give the best performance in both worlds. 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.

Perfect for the price. Easy to trim and fit. So far they have been great. The tail clip holds nice on my burton family tree.

...skin on the market for splitboards! I have tried almost all other brands and this one is spot on! G3, hands down best and offer a great balance between climb and glide. Highly recommend!
