Product Info

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.

Product Details

Material

NylonNow 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 LoopBlack 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 AttachmentWith 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.

Features

Gold Label GlueThrough 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.

Pre-cut bikini-style tail to reduce drag

Comments about Black Diamond Ascension Nylon STS Climbing Skins:

Overall, as a product, I think these have been great. I've used them once so far and they held on the slopes, and had a bit of glide.

Preparation & Trimming: Directions were easy and straightforward. The most difficulties I encountered were just getting the skin centered & stuck down. Once I got into the habit for trimming, it was easy to do. Unfortunately, I did end up with a pair of skins that had shoddy screws - they broke off before getting all the way through the skin. However, after reaching out to Black Diamond's customer service and warranty department, we got everything squared away. They attributed the issue to a bad batch of screws and assured me that subsequent production orders are unaffected.

Application & Use: Really easy to place onto the ski. Basically, slap 'em on, and start going. I had no issues with sliding off the slope. Of course, once the incline gets large enough, anyone will slide.

Removal: Easy peasy - the glue was still new, so they stuck on really well. Otherwise, no issues getting them off and stowed away.

Overall: I like them!
