I love these

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

I've used these skins for several seasons and I love them. I re-glue them every season because they definitely lose some stickiness over time. Love them, they hold up, and they do the job. My only complaint is the setup - the nails given to attach the toe piece are SUPER fragile and if you break one accidentally, there are no extras :(

133 mm wide


Will the Black Diamond Ascension Climbing Skins fit the Black Diamond Boundary 115s at 195cm?


Will these skins work with twin tip skis? I noticed G3 makes a Twin Tip attachment. Will I need supplemental parts in order to use these skins?


What is the stock width of the ascension skins?
