Stuff We Like: Black Diamond Ascension Nylon STS Skins

New climbing skins have better glide but still grip great on the uphill.

Whether you're taking a hot lap in the sidecountry to avoid the lift lines, or heading out for dawn patrol, Black Diamond's Ascension Nylon STS Skins will give you the perfect mix of grip and glide.

These printed synthetic plush skins have a new nap that glides even better when coasting on flats without sacrificing uphill performance. They're designed with a one-size-fits-most adjustable tip, and 10 cm of adjustment in the tail to fit all ski lengths. Black Diamond makes them for narrow to fat skis–65mm to 140mm underfoot. They'll help you get an extra lap in before it's back to the cubicle. $140-$170
Weight: 1 lb, 10 oz per pair. blackdiamondequipment.com
