Get access to any mountain with a set of Black Diamond Skins this winter. The Ascension Nylon STS skins give the best grip for climbing, while still gliding with ease. This year's model comes improved on the traditional Ascension design with new printed plush material. The longer fibers grab the snow for better climbing but sit flatter for easier gliding.
Black Diamond's improved skins add a bit of silicone to their glue for easier pulling apart. The glue is also temperature and compression active allowing it to become more tacky in the cold. A lighter weight design with the continued durability of previous models, this year's Ascension keeps the dense backing to avoid twisting when at the top of the mountain with frozen fingers and a need for powder.
These Black Diamond Ascension Custom Skins come pre-cut to the length of your ski for easier trimming, and pre-assembled with tail clip and all of the materials you will need for trimming. The tip attachment is included for self-assembly. The patented STS adjustable tail provides 10 cm of length adjustment on these skins while the adjustable tip attachment fits a wide range of ski tip shapes. All 2012 BD Skins come in a new and improved zip-closed ripstop nylon bag.
Blemished. These skins are cosmetic seconds and are slightly imperfect. The imperfections do not affect performance. All Black Diamond 2nd skins are marked with a small circle melted into the plush.
