The classic returns for 2013. The Black Diamond Ascension Nylon Custom STS Climbing Skins are known for superior grip and durability, as well as for unrivaled glue that works in almost any temperature. Updated last season, BD's nylon plush gains glide thanks to longer, flatter fibers without compromising its snow gripping power. STS tail straps are ultra durable and are easily adjusted in the field, even with gloves on.
Ascension Nylon Black Diamond's nylon plush returns for unmatched performance on steep climbs and variable snow conditions with longer, flatter fibers that give superior glide on flat approaches. The material also maintains an ideal stiffness-to-packability ratio that lets them fold easily but still stay manageable in windy conditions.
Tail Straps Strong, reliable and with an even stretch throughout, the STS tail straps are easily adjusted in the field.
Tip Loops Black Diamond tip loops fit a wide range of tip shapes and widths and can be easily adjusted to swap back and forth between different skis in your quiver. Unlike other laminated or sewn-in tip loop attachments, these are fully replaceable. These come pre-installed on Custom Series skins.
Weight 696 grams (per pair, untrimmed 110 mm)
