Product Info

The classic gets even better. The Black Diamond Ascension Nylon Split STS Climbing Skins have long been known for the best uphill grip and durability in the business and famous for glue that sticks in the widest range of temperatures. BD's nylon plush gives up none of its tenacity this year, but gains some glide with longer, flatter fibers. The STS tail system straps are super durable, have an even stretch throughout, and are easily adjusted in the field with gloved hands. Split skins are designed for wide powder skis 120 mm or more underfoot; the center of the skin is split and a thin piece of ripstop fabric replaces the plush to save weight.

Product Details


Ascension NylonBlack 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 and Tail Attachments

Tail StrapsStrong, reliable and with an even stretch throughout, the STS tail straps are easily adjusted in the field.

Tip LoopsBlack 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.


Gold Label AdhesiveBlack 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.

Center plush is replaced by thin ripstop fabric to save weight
