The ESCAPIST UNIVERSAL is the most affordable and versatile custom-fit performance climbing skin that's designed to be as easy to set up as it is to use.
The ESCAPIST is a fully customizable climbing skin. The user sets the length and trims the edges according to their skis using the included G3 trim tool. For the first time in a custom setup skin, the ESCAPIST features G3's patented self-aligning stainless steel hands to create a strong connection with any ski tip shape. Paramount to the ESCAPIST design, this feature brings G3's premium user experience and performance to a value line of skins.
New for the 2022/2023 season, G3 has improved the ESCAPIST tails. Sizing holes have been added to improve user experience and now has similar functionality to the tried and true ALPINIST+ tail strap. This eliminates slippage thanks to the mechanical design while maintaining the ultra lightweight design and materials.
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.
