Now you can get hassle-free, precision-trimmed skins straight from the factory. The Ascension hydrophobic plush has been cut specifically for your Black Diamond skis so they are perfectly trimmed and ready to go right out of the box. Our highly adjustable STS (Skin Tight System) Kit fits tenaciously to the tip and tail. The stretchy elastomer strap and stainless steel camming device are glove-friendly, easy to tension and simple to adjust. Low-profile tip loops make for easy trail breaking while glueless strips simplify pulling them apart in the field. Conveniently, these shaped skins fit on the majority of other skis and the STS tail system allows flexibility in length adjustments. Choose skins based on your ski type and size

The STS attachment is designed to fit as many types of skis as possible with total ease of use and trusted durability. The precision swaged and covered tip loop is flexible so it can adjust to unique shapes and accommodate fatties. For long life expectancy the tailpiece is attached with a stainless steel plate riveted flush to your skins. The stretchy blue elastomer strap has ten notches for the adjustable stainless steel camming device. Set it once for the season or swap the skins on different skis and take advantage of the 10 cm of adjustability.

The beauty of these skins is that they come factory trimmed to your length and type of ski (Black Diamond only, of course). A novel concept.

STS is great also. Never had a problem with fit or tail flap.
