New from G3 for the 19/20 season, the Minimist Glide skin is wicked light and compact, offering the user a high performance and fully featured skin that is geared for those seeking to up their touring efficiency across a variety of snow conditions.
Using high performance and low-bulk textiles, G3 was able to achieve the ultralight weight that is up to 30% lighter than anything else in its performance class. The Glide plush fabric is a blend of 70% mohair and 30% nylon, and laminated with a waterproof backing. The minimalist tip is uniquely fitted with a carbon fibre insert that creates a directionally rigid platform, helping to prevent snow creep.
We also like the fact that G3 skin adhesive is non-toxic, and is layered with a removable rip-strip for reduced skin to skin adhesion, but can be removed if additional adhesion is desired.
