Black Diamond's Ascension Nylon STD Skins forgo tail attachments in favor of a basic, easy-to-use design. Nylon fibers provide all the grip you need for climbing steep pitches, adjustable tip attachments fit a variety of tip shapes, and the simple design means quick on and quick off when you're busting out laps during a dawn patrol.
- Plush nylon material provides steadfast traction on the steepest slopes and smooth glide when you need to conquer a rolling track
- Gold Label Adhesive sticks to the bottom of your skis in the coldest and warmest temps and remains sticky season after season
- Strong metal wire tip loops fit a wide range of ski tip sizes and can be easily adjusted or replaced

Just bought these, and I didn't realize...
Just bought these, and I didn't realize they didn't have the tail clips(my mistake, should have read into the STS vs STD differences more). Why would you have some with them and some with out? Will they work without them? Or will the eventually peal off on longer climbs?
They make these skins without the tail attachments to save weight for the minimalistic backcountry skier. They will work just fine without the tail attachments and will hold up lap after lap. If you want to exchange these for the STS model feel free to call us at 1-800-409-4502 or chat with a gearhead online to arrange an exchange.

Encase you are wondering the STS will have an adjustable tail attachment where the STD lacks any tail attachment. Cheers!
