Looking for maximum grip and durability in a climbing skin? Look no further than the Gold Standard, Black Diamond's Ascension Nylon Custom STS Climbing Skins. The Ascension Nylon plush is well-known for tenacious hold on even hard glazed skintracks and glue that lasts for season after season. The Custom STS line features Black Diamond's easily adjustable STS elastomer tail straps and tip loops, and skins are pre-cut for length. (Users must trim skins to match the sidecut of their own skis.)
Ascension Nylon Black Diamond has completely redesigned their nylon plush 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.
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.
Tail Straps Strong, reliable and with an even stretch throughout, the STS tail straps are easily adjusted in the field.
Tip Loops Black Diamond Custom Series Skins come with the tip loop pre-installed.
Gold Label Adhesive Black Diamond's proprietary Gold Label Adhesive remains sticky and durable season after season, and continues to lead the field as the most proven and reliable skin glue for all conditions.
