Black Diamond makes all sorts of skins for backcountry touring; some are for skis, some are for splitboards, some are mohair, some are nylon, and some are a combination of both. In the case for Black Dimaond's Glidelite Splitboard Mix STS Climbing Skin, it's a climbing skin suitable for splitboarders looking for better grip on steep skin tracks than glide on flatter traverses. Usually, skins made of a mohair nylon blend strike a solid balance between grip and glide, but since Black Diamond made this one with more nylon than mohair, the Glidelite gives greater grip to prevent slipping on firmer snow.
