Looking for a pair of skins that does it all? Look no further - the Black Diamond
Ascension Nylon STS Climbing Skins are sure to do the trick. The durable, nylon material provides good grip on slippery uphill slopes without compromising an efficient glide. With Black Diamond
's pre-attached STS adjustable tail clip, finding the perfect amount of tension on your ski is quick and easy for lightning-fast transitions. The skin also includes adjustable tip loops that fit snuggly to a variety of tip shapes and widths.
Nylon - Now with a redesigned plush that's more packable and lighter than previous versions, Black Diamond's Ascension skins feature proprietary woven nylon plush, which offers legendary climbing performance on steep skin tracks and in variable snow conditions. Longer, flatter fibers provide improved glide on lower-angle terrain. This material retains the ideal balance of suppleness and packability, while remaining stiff enough to manage on windy ridge tops or in stormy conditions.
Tip and Tail Attachments
Adjustable Tip Loop - Black Diamond tip loops fit a wide range of ski tips and sizes and can easily be adjusted to swap back and forth between different skis in your quiver.
STS Tail Attachment - With 10cm of length adjustment, Black Diamond's tail straps are strong, reliable and specifically designed to have even stretch throughout. This ensures that you'll get a snug, secure fit, whether you use the first slot or the last.
Gold Label Glue - Through years of development and refinement, Gold Label glue has reached a formulation that allows it to perform in a wide range of temperatures, remaining sticky and durable season after season. To ensure glue quality is optimized, Black Diamond applies it to their Ascension and GlideLite skins in-house.
