More supple, 20% more packable and 40 g (1.4 oz) lighter than similar Ascension models, the Glidelite Mohair Mix Custom STS skins are the perfect balance between glideability and climbability. This year's model comes improved on the traditional Mohair Mix design with new printed plush material for the optimal blend of 65% mohair and 35% nylon. 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. 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. These custom sized skins are pre-cut to fit the size ranges listed in the "width and "length" menus. The ranges in length come from the adjustable STS tail clip.
These skins come equipped and assembled with tip and tail clip. All 2012 BD Skins also include a new and improved zip closer, durable nylon ripstop 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.
