G3 Genuine Guide Gear Alpinist elle Climbing Skins -
The G3 Alpinist elle climbing skins aren't just pretty to look at; they grip the up-track like a cougar paw. With the same solid features as other Alpinist skins, the Alpinist elle's were actually the first to have a RipStrip (non-adhesive center strip) which makes it easier to pull the skins apart.

Weather and Wind:

  • G3’s glue formula works exceptionally in all snow conditions


  • Direct tail strap lamination helps create a low-profile bond for optimized glide\


  • Innovative tip connector features pivoting steel hands mounted on a low-profile crossbar so skins don't get ditched on the ascent
  • Synthetic plush
  • Curved low profile tip connector with self aligning stainless steel hands
  • Non-toxic solvent free adhesive
The G3 Alpinist elle Climbing Skins are made with the same great materials and technology as the normal Alpinist, with a fresh and fun graphic for the ladies. Available in a wide variety of lengths and widths, the elle Climbing Skins will get you to your destination with ease, thanks to G3's non-freeze glue and lightweight, grippy nylon plush. G3's self-adjusting tip clips are ideal for wide ski tips.

Skins should be easy to switch so you can get out and play. At least, that's the philosophy of the G3 Women's Alpinist elle Climbing Skins. The Elle’s RipStrip reduces skin to skin adhesion, removal from skis is quick and painless (as it should be).

Positive Reviews:

Using these on my Rossignol 178 S3's with 95 underfoot. By following the directions for length and buying the 130's, I now have excellent fitted skins. It is worth noting, it takes no technical knowledge to trim these skins.
I really like the tail connector, as opposed to the BD tails that I was more acquainted with. These tails go on very easily, are quite simple to adjust, and with a simple pull, come right off. They sometimes go a little cockeyed on the tails, (as they are twin tip skis) but this is to be expected and easily fixed.
Skin wise, they have great traction, while maintaing a fair level of glide. This pleasantly surprised me, as I am used to incredibly grippy skins. With that said, these had no trouble going up hill.
Finally, I would just like to say how the tip, while slightly unconventional works quite well and does not come off the ski as one might expect.
The graphics on the bottoms draw compliments, the skins are grippy enough, but still easy to get off, and are flexible and thin enough to stuff in a jacket pocket, even on a colder day.

I bought these as a replacement for a pair of Alpinist skins that were too short. There were no Alpinist in the size I needed so decided to try these as the seemed to be exactly the same. They are the same, the tip and tail attachments work well and are easy to use. The skins glide and grip well and they are light and fold up small. I did have a bit of a problem with snow working its way under the skin and the glue doesn't seem very sticky. Also, the include trim tool works well, but appears to cause a bit of damage to the glue on the edges - be careful when cutting - I think this may be why I am getting snow in there.

A decent skin for anyone that is looking to get into alpine touring! The tip clips are a must for those fat powder skis!
