The GlideLite mix skins are 65/35 blend of mohair and nylon. They are lighter, faster, and more packable than the equivalent Ascension skins. The glue is BD Gold Label, a secret formula that arguably works too well. GlideLite skins are held to your skis with an adjustable cable tip and (optionally) the rugged STS tails. Both ends offer field-replaceable parts, making these a good choice for light and fast expeditions. The Black Diamond mohair-mix is a reliable climbing skin that isn’t the slowest.
