FS G3 Alpinist Skins 115mm, Long $100

Last year I bought these skins online for my new skis.
The problem was that I hadn't remembered the dimensions of my skis correctly, and these skins are a size too long!
I subsequently bought another pair exactly the same, but the length down, and they were great out in the hills last winter. They performed favourably compared to my girlfriends BD skins.

So, I have for sale one brand new pair of G3 Alpinist Climbing Skins. 115mm wide. Size Long (good for skis min 178cm). $100.

The protective plastic against the glue has never been removed, the label is still on the bag, and the legendary G3 skin trimming tool is unused and included too.

Happy to pay postage if someone is interested, otherwise can pick up if you're in Adelaide.

I'll take 'em if they'll fit my G3 Manhattans.

The dimensions are posted, so measure up your skis and check if you reckon they'll work.

I had thought all skins are pretty easy to make thinner or shorter.

Ah sorry Mike, meant to check that last night. My Manhattans are 180 or 185 I think, and 108 underfoot.

These skins are definitely easy to adjust in width (the trimming tool included with them makes is very easy indeed).

The trick is the length. I have 175cm skis, and these definitely would not work. Unlike the Black Diamond skins, which you cut to the length desired and then attach the nose loop, these you have 15cm of adjustment on the tail, but the tail and front loop (hooks in this case) are permanent.

If you've got 180cm + skis you should be fine, I reckon.
