Black Diamond Nylon Skins Per CM

Brand: Black Diamond
Model: Ascension Roll
Shipping: Free over $50*
Availability: No Longer Available
Price: $0.27

Now you can get your ol’ reliables by the meter centimeter. Customize your skins with your favorite tip and tail, or attach the STS tip & tails for an inexpensive version of the Black Diamond kits. The BD Ascension nylon skins can take a beating and are backed with the stickiest glue around. According to local legends, they are the only thing that works in some climates. Type in the number of centimeters you want in the quantity field and we will cut that length off a roll and send it your way. Available in 125mm and 140mm widths.

Question from Aaron
 
Does each purchase come as a pair? For example, if I need 170cm for each ski do I have to order 340cm or just 170cm?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Aaron, it does not come as a pair so you'd need to order enough centimeters to cover two skis. Unless of course you are cutting them in half lengthwise for skinny skis.

Question from Jordan
 
Just wondering if the 140mm will be in stock anytime soon?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jordan, unfortunately it appears unlikely that we will get any more. It's not something BD normally distributes in the US.

Good news Jordan, we managed to snag a roll of 140!

Question from Alexa
 
How much length do you recommend for attaching tips and tails? For example, my skis are 172 and I plan to attach BD loops at the tips-- Should I plan 180 cm for each ski or more?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Alexa, actually you can subtract some cm for the tip and tail attachments. The tip attachments let you start 2-3cm back, and the BD adjustable tails would save you another 5-10+, depending on your preference for tail coverage. So 162cm per ski would be a good start.

Are you out of the 140mm width?

Answer from jbo
 
Yes Mike, sorry. Looks like we are unable to get any more 140mm rolls this season.

Something worth mentioning ... If you're using narrow race skis, you can buy wide BD skins then remove the non-sticky center strip, cut them in half length-wise, and trim each half to fit a narrow ski. So you can outfit a pair of skis with just one length of skin. I recently did this with some 140mm skins and it worked great. 125mm should work too, but the bigger width gives you more flexibility.

Great idea Lowell, I suppose you could do that with any skin over 120mm wide. Half of that would be 60 which is good enough for race skis. Even easier if it doesn't have that center strip.

These skins are bombproof. My limited experience with mohair suggests it's somewhat delicate, but I don't hesitate to rub skin wax into these with vigor. Rocks, trees, whatever - they don't really seem to get damaged and grip pretty well. Glide improves with break-in, and hot waxing seems to improve it, though I'm not sure if hydrocarbon + fluorocarbon is much better than plain hydrocarbon waxing. BD skins seem to be highly popular with tourers because of their quality, robustness, and availability.

I just noticed my review clearly mentions mohair, which these have none of. Perhaps there used to be an old picture of the mohair mix? Or maybe I'm just losing my mind. Anyhow - BD nylon skins are awesome.

Hah, maybe you assumed we would have mohair vs nylon, which is usually a safe assumption. Recent news is we now have BD mohair mix by the centimeter.

Re-reading it, I was trying to contrast these with the usual mohair skimo fare, and worded it badly. It might have been out of surprise that you sell stuff for *gasp* normal touring (!) ;)

Oh, we mostly cut them in half lengthwise to use as really tacky skins for skinny skis :)
