G3's Minimist collection of climbing skins consists of some of the lightest, most packable skins for backcountry skiing, and the Minimist Universal Skin is the most versatile climbing skin in that collection. Its nylon material gives a greater grip for a better chance not slipping on steeper, icier surfaces, so you can rely on it whenever the snow's softer and the angle is mellower. First appearing in G3's Alpinist + skins, the carbon tip provides an uncompromisingly rigid attachment without adding much extra weight, and the camming tail strap has an adjustable strap to cinch down as the skin stretches overtime. G3 included skin savers and a trim tool to help you fit the skins to your ski's specific profile.
Laterally Stiff To Reduce Snow Creep: The side-to-side stiffness in the backing material of every MINIMIST skin creates a directionally rigid platform making it harder for snow to creep between your skin and ski base and extending the use of your adhesive.
Bomber Tail Connector: G3’s low profile, elongated tail strap makes transitions fast and easy. The refined camming clip stays positioned on the ski, reduces wear and allows for easy adjustments.
Removable Rip Strip: Reduces skin-to-skin adhesion, making it easier to pull apart skins. If your glue gets contaminated on an epic traverse, you can remove the strip for extra adhesion.
Trim Tool Included: Fastest and simplest trim tool available.
Skin Savers Included: Maximize the life of your skins by protecting and preserving the glue. Meant to be used for long-term storage or daily applications.
Premium Plush: Proprietary lightweight, fast gliding, supple yet super durable nylon plush.
All New Non-Toxic Adhesive: Updated adhesive features a refined formula engineered to let you do more laps and cover more terrain without having to worry about your skins.
PFC Free: G3's new skin waterproofing treatment exceeds environmental standards.
Made in Canada: Proudly designed, tested and manufactured in BC, Canada.
