The Black Diamond Ascension Skins STS 110mm are great value no nonsense skins. Nylon, as a skin material, is highly durable, provides excellent grip and a reasonable glide. The Nylon STS skins have both the Black Diamond STS tip and tail attachments which will fit almost any ski and are easy to get on and off.
Compared to mohair mix skins nylon skins are a bit stiffer when cold which makes them a little less packable but easier to handle in windy conditions. Compared to mohair, nylon offers the same grip, more durability but a little less glide.
Instructions on trimming the width and length is included with the skins. Please also see the video below.
