You can always narrow the width of skins by cutting (and on BD skins you can shorten their length). Some people that are really serious on weight will pick a narrow skin that does not cover their whole ski. However, if you don't want to slide around, especially while traversing harder snow, pick a skin that is of equal or greater width than your skis widest dimension and trip the skin so there is 0.5cm of ski exposed on either side of your skin. Also a consideration for some mountaineers is that narrower skins are easier to put on your ski with high winds, but I think that's just about practice.

You want to buy skins that fit the widest point of your ski, and then trim down to size. Therefore, the Black Diamond STS in 140mm would be best. The 130mm would work also, but the 140mm would be ideal.^^^ I disagree. The edges on most skis are about 2mm wide each. So, 130mm skins would be perfect (134mm - 2X2mm = 130mm). Buying 140mm skins would be a waste of money and skin material.^^^Definitely go with the 130mm, you wouldn't want to buy skins that are wider than your tips...G3 also makes awesome skins.

I ride last years ski, which has been changed a bit for the better for this years ski. It's my only ski and have Naxo's on it to shred the inbounds and the BC. Definitely a fun ski where ever you take it but not the stiffest. I've skied others that give more stability because they are stiff. I'm 5'10", 165 lbs, and I ski the 183's

Any comments on how it attaches to poles, probes, ect. Does the strapping system work well?
