Here's what other sites are saying:
Ever have trouble finding touring a skin to fit your mega-fat powder ski' Black Diamond's Ascension Nylon Split STS Climbing Skin was made for a ski with a waist of 120mm or wider. Rather than attempt to cover the entire base of your fat ski, this climbing skin uses plush nylon skin material closer to the edges, with a strip of mesh down the middle in order to aid packability and reduce weight. Now your pow ski CAN be your touring ski.
Black Diamond Ascension Nylon Split STS Skins provide the best grip and climbing thanks to a new and improved material. These lightweight split skins are designed specifically for splitboards and mega-fat powder skis (wider than 120 mm underfoot) and feature a Dyneema-reinforced strip down the middle for weight and drag reduction. Their split-specific tip attachment features an oversized cable to fit the fattest ski tips, and our patented STS tail system provides up to 10 cm of adjustability. Unique "split" skin has Dyneema-reinforced ripstop nylon in middle for reduced weight, drag, more packability and easy on/off. Durable printed plush material provides benchmark climbing with improved glide. Patented STS adjustable tails provide 10 cm of length adjustment. Split-skin-specific adjustable tip attachment with oversized cable for wider ski tips. Stick these Black Diamond Climbing Skins on your phat skis or split board for ultimate climb and glide capabilities in the backcountry. Weight Per Pair: 708 g, 1 lb 9 oz
