The GlideLite Mohair Mix Kicker Climbing Skin is an ultralight half-skin that will make the minimalist rando racer giddy with delight. Black Diamond used quick-gliding mohair to keep this skin light and highly packable, and it shrugged off classic tip and tail attachments in favor of a webbing-and-buckle system that makes for lightning-fast attachment.


For long, flat approaches on frozen lakes, forest roads or open trails, the Black Diamond Mohair Mix Kicker Skins offer surprising traction and a third the weight of a full mohair mix skin. These ultralight half-skins feature a camlock buckle and nylon strap attachment and are built with a combination of mohair and nylon for the perfect balance of grip and glide.


Specifically designed to cover only the middle third of your skis, these lightweight 65 mm skins give you superb traction when and where it's needed perfect for your next backcountry adventure. Ideal for rolling, climbing or steep terrain, their exceptionally supple and durable mohair/nylon mix repels water and provides outstanding glide. Only one-third the length and weight of traditional skins, they conveniently pack into your pocket. Camlock straps and an adhesive bottom secure the skin to the ski and allow for easy on/off. Includes instructions, cheat sheet and stuff sack. Made in USA.

These ultralight half skins are perfect for the backcountry minimalist. Black Diamond's GlideLite Mohair Mix Kicker Skin weighs nearly 1/3 the weight of the full length version while offering great grip and durability thanks to the 65% mohair 35% nylon construction. A camlock buckle with nylon strap attachment holds the skin securely in place under your foot.
