Rated 4 out of 5 by from Subtle Improvement to the Earlier Model The Ascensions are a great purchase for those wanting an effective and long-lasting set of climbing skins. Without looking at the stats, it does seems that they're a bit lighter than those from previous years and they seem to fold-up a little easier as well. My only complaint is with the stuff-sack, which is sub-par based on my experience with other BD products. It's made from very thin material and the stitching for the drawcord hem was poorly sewn. It lasted all of one day before ripping to pieces. With this said, it may be a good idea to purchase a separate stuff-sack if you want to stow these in your pack between transitions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good traction on the uphill but BAD GLUE I have owned two pairs of these skins for my splitboards. The first pair performed decently. However, the glue gave out fairly quickly (less than a seasons of use). I stored them on the skin savers and in optimal conditions. The second pair had horrible glue from the start. Regardless of it was really cold or really warm, the glue would not function well. It would always be fine on the first lap, but by the second or third, even when I kept them dry and warm, the glue would not stick very well. It was a pain in the butt. I will not be buying anymore BD skins

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good skins Bought a pair for myself and my wife and we've used them a number of times in the resort and the slack country and they've performed well in both contexts. We are both newer skiers but have been snowboarding for years. They glide real nice and grip even better. I'm 6'5" 270lbs so I wanted something with durability and grip over superior glide-ability and so far I've seen both features with these skins, and really I can't notice any drag at all, though I'm not touring for days where that might add up. Setting them up takes some time, and I understand others' complaints on the screws. I used a slightly larger drywall screw to create the start of a pilot hole ("just the tip") prior to fastening with the screws provided and that worked great. I also used a power drill to fasten them and had no problems. I use them a few times a week and they are good as new.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The glue and tail-attachment clips suck! I have used BD skins for about 25 years. Full-length skins and kickers. If their glue ever got too weak, some "gold label" adhesive readily restored the adhesion. So when I bought a new pair of Madshus Epoch skis (185 cm, 99-68-84 mm), I bought a new pair of BD Acsension STS skins. In my garage I put the trimmed skins on my skis and seriously questioned whether the glue had sufficient adhesion. So before a multiday trans-Sierra tour, i tried the skins on a day tour. Again I wondered about the glue strength. But I told myself, "this is Black Diamond, they know what they are doing." On my trans-Sierra tour, the glue was woefully inadequate. The skins would not stay on my skis, even with duct tape. And both rear-attachment clips fell off. Luckily my buddy found one of the clips. The other is melting into the snow pack. Clearly BD did not engineer their skins for me -- someone who needs adhesion on multiday tours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dope skins Group of us go skinning and all use different types/brands. These are hands down best skins for every day skinning. Glue is great, good glide, ease of use is awesome, and the knife that comes with makes trimming them easy. Looks pretty dope as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Used for the first time this weekend hiking up Quandary Peak in Colorado. Couldn't be more pleased. For the screw issue, just treat it carefully. I had no problem with them like the others on here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect skin Best all workhorse. Much better glue than a couple years ago, great durability, grip and cost. But they should scrap their skin cutter and get the much better G3 cutter.

I know these come in various lengths... what length are these skins?

Asked by: jaronamo
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! I went straight to Black Diamond for the specs on this one. Their sweet rep Scott informed me that these nylons will be good for skis from 195 all the way up to 200. Hope this helped you out!
