The Alpinist+ Universal skin is made for any location and all conditions. The universal nylon plush material is durable and versatile offering the optimal balance of grip, glide and weight. A skin covering the full base of a ski adds extra weight and unnecessary drag; most of the grip comes from under the binding area. By not having the skin material all the way to the tail, the Alpinist+ saves weight without adversely affecting grip. At the front an extended TPU tip provides superior glide while trail breaking and self-aligning steel hands secure them to the front of the ski. The tail strap provides up to 16cm of length adjustment and the camming clip grips to the tail. A non-toxic adhesive formula provides grip for skinning uphill and is effective down to -30°c; PFC-free waterproofing prevents snow build-up while exceeding environmental standards. Comes with a G3 trim tool for cutting the skins to size and covers up to 130mm width.
Per- and polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) are a family of human-made, fluorine-containing chemicals. They have long been used to add water and stain repellent properties to technical fabrics. PFCs can harm the wearer of the garment and damage nature. Incredibly resistant to breakdown, these pollutants have been found across the globe; they can remain in the environment for many years after release. In response, a growing number of PFC-Free products are being developed, designed to provide reliable water repellency without the use of these harmful chemicals.
