From one-lap dawn patrols to 10,000-foot days, the Black Diamond Ascension Nylon STS 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 STS Skins feature our patented STS tail attachment system, which provides up to 10 cm of adjustability for using with different skis in your quiver or for easy tensioning. 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.
Engineered for long approaches and extended ski tours where both packability and traction are paramount, the Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Mix STS Skins feature an optimal blend of mohair and nylon with an updated BD Icon print. With a highly supple, packable design that's 40 g (1.4 oz) lighter than the comparable model of our Ascension skins, these skins bring the efficiency in any conditions. These skins feature precut lengths to fit your skis and make for quick, easy trimming. Our patented STS tail system provides up to 10 cm of adjustability and our adjustable tip attachment fits a wide range of ski tips.
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.
