BLACK DIAMOND GLIDELITE MOHAIR MIX Custom Skins
Easier to trim than the full STS skins as the tip and tail are pre attached.
Constructed with 65% mohair and 35% nylon fibres, the BD Glidelite skin plush is 20% less bulky than older models, taking up less volume in your pack. This soft, supple laminate is also easier to stuff inside your jacket, keeping the skins warm between transitions. BD Glidelite Mixed fibre skins are 60 grams lighter size for size compared with Black Diamond's Ascension nylon skins. They will also out perform nylon skins in a range of snow conditions and temperatures, balling up less, particularly in Europe.
Black Diamond have an adjustable tip loop which will fit a wide range of ski tip shapes. This comes pre attached. The new style tip loop helps to eliminate the problem of snow packing between the ski tip and skin, commonly associated with traditional fixing systems. The adjustable tail straps are also 20% stronger and provide 10cm of length adjustment. These are trim to fit skins and can be cut to the shape of your skis.
A trim tool and full instructions are included in the kit along with a stuff sack and a cheat sheet. We recommend cutting the long cheat sheet into two pieces and folding one skin around each piece when carrying on the hill. The two sections of cheat sheet can be over lapped when putting the skins into long term storage.
