Get access to any mountain with a set of Black Diamond Skins this winter. The Ascension Nylon Split STS skins are made with a Dyneema-reinforced ripstop nylon in the middle for reduced weight, drag, more packability, and easier on and off. The Ascension skins give the best grip while 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.
The patented STS adjustable tail provides 10 cm of length adjustment on these skins while the Split-skin-specific adjustable tip attachment with oversized cable fits wider ski tips. These split skins come in a long length meant to be cut down to fit your ski.
The Black Diamond Split Skins come equipped and assembled with tail clip and all of the materials you will need to cut them down to fit to your ski. The tip attachment is included for self-assembly once you cut them down to size. All 2012 BD Skins also include a new and improved zip closer, durable nylon ripstop bag.
