BD's Ascension skins are made with completely redesigned plush construction, which offers the same unmatched performance on steep climbs and variable snow conditions, but now with longer, flatter fibers for improved glide on lower angle approaches. The material also retains the ideal balance of suppleness and packability that keeps them stiff enough to manage on windy ridge tops or in stormy conditions.
BD's tip loops fit a wide range of ski tips and sizes and can be easily adjusted to swap back and forth between different skis in your quiver. Unlike other tip loop attachments that are laminated or sewn-in, BD's tip loops are fully replaceable.
BD's tail straps are strong, reliable, and specifically designed to have an even stretch throughout. This ensures that you'll get a snug, secure fit, whether you use the first slot or the last. Thanks to 10 cm of length adjustment, you can swap the skins between different skis.
- The Go-to Standard
- These are simply easy to use industry standards for skins. They do the trick and do it well. Mine have lasted multiple seasons without any problems. Some people have been nervous to trim the skins themselves, but it is honestly a very easy process. I personally cut mine a tad narrower than my skis just so there is a little exposed edge to assist with icy switchbacks. To summarize, these are great for any skier going into the backcountry.
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
It looks like we have carried that product in 110mm, 125mm, and 140mm widths. Unfortunately, it seems we are not offering that product at the moment. As you may have noticed, there is no way to actually add the product to your cart. It looks like that is a leftover page from a product we have carried in the past. Sorry about that!
It does appear that you can order them directly through Black Diamond though, in 15mm width increments ranging from 65mm to 140mm. Those can be found here: http://blackdiamondequipment.com/en/ski-skins/ascension-nylon-sts-skins-BD163661_cfg.html#start=1
