Get access to any mountain with a set of Black Diamond Skins this winter. The Ascension Nylon Custom STS skins give the best grip for climbing, while still gliding with ease. This year's model comes improved on the traditional Ascension design with new printed plush material. The longer fibers grab the snow for better climbing but sit flatter for easier gliding.
Black Diamond's improved skins add a bit of silicone to their glue for easier pulling apart. The glue is also temperature and compression active allowing it to become more tacky in the cold. A lighter weight design with the continued durability of previous models, this year's Ascension keeps the dense backing to avoid twisting when at the top of the mountain with frozen fingers and a need for powder.
The patented STS adjustable tail provides 10 cm of length adjustment on these skins while the adjustable tip attachment fits a wide range of ski tip shapes. These custom sized skins are pre-cut to fit the size ranges listed in the "width and "length" menus. The ranges in length come from the adjustable STS tail clip.
These skins come equipped and assembled with tip and tail clip. All 2012 BD Skins also include a new and improved zip closer, durable nylon ripstop bag.
