More supple, 20% more packable and 40 g (1.4 oz) lighter than similar Ascension models, the Glidelite Mohair Mix STS skins are the perfect balance between glideability and climbability. This year's model comes improved on the traditional Mohair Mix design with new printed plush material for the optimal blend of 65% mohair and 35% nylon. 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. 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. They come in a long length meant to be cut down to fit your ski.
These Black Diamond Glidelite Mohair Mix Skins come equipped and assembled with tail clip and all of the materials you will need to cut them down to fit to your ski. The tip attachment is included for self-assembly. All 2012 BD Skins also include a new and improved zip closer, durable nylon ripstop bag.
