Why We Like The Black Diamond Ascension Climbing Skins

When we set out in search of lesser-known skintracks and untracked backcountry lines, the Black Diamond Ascension Skins are our ticket to bottomless turns. Their newly re-worked nylon material is lighter and more packable than ever, while the tried-and-true adjustable tip loops and STS tail clips ensure a solid hold on your skis. The STS tail clip provides 10cm of adjustability, allowing you to switch the skins between different skis in your quiver.

Great skins, can’t remember when

Great skins, can’t remember when I bought my first pair but they are always reliable, so I always buy them.

third pair

I am on my third pair, since I have three sets of skis. Easy to use, long lasting, and sticky on the snow!

Great

My sister bought the same ones 3 years ago and they’re still super sticky and work perfectly in a steep terrain! So happy to have mine now.

Wrong instructions for included off set trim tool creates double offset

The instructions say to offset the skins 2mm during trimming to expose edges but the trim tool is a new design apparently than previous BD skins I have bought. The new tool also offsets by 2mm. Fortunately I realized something was wrong early in the process.

Great Skins

These skins are so great. My previous skins were not sticking to my skis and picking up tons of snow on the climb and these were recommended by a few friends. They are smooth and dry when I get to the top and easy to use!

Best overall system

I have used Ascencion skins for years and have watched the evolution of skin design. This latest incarnation is by far the best...all you have to do is trim to fit. No hardware to deal with...it's already installed. I had mine ready to go in 15 minutes. The new skin trimming tool is a game changer...with built in offset...just lay the skins on the ski...centered...and then trim both sides. All done!

Best Skin on the Market

Sticky and grippy in the right places. Came with a tool that made cutting the skins quick, easy, and accurate.
