From one-lap dawn patrols to 10,000-foot days, the Black Diamond Ascension Nylon STD Skins offer standard-setting traction on the uphill with efficient glide thanks to our redesigned plush material, which is now 20% lighter and more packable than previous versions. The Ascension Nylon STD Skins come without tail attachments for simple and streamlined skinning. The adjustable tip loop accommodates a wide range of modern ski tip shapes. We also gave the skins a pre-trimmed, bikini-style tail for reduced drag and weight with modern-shaped skis.
For long, flat approaches on frozen lakes, forest roads or open trails, the Black Diamond Mohair Mix Kicker Skins offer surprising traction and a third the weight of a full mohair mix skin. These ultralight half-skins feature a camlock buckle and nylon strap attachment and are built with a combination of mohair and nylon for the perfect balance of grip and glide.
