BLACK DIAMOND SPLITBOARD CLIMBING SKINS
GlideLite Splitboard Mix STS - 140 mm is rated out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jesse from Good solid skins so far I bought these for my Libtech Goldmember split. Was my first time cutting skins but they were easy to fit and have stayed put in varied conditions. Good glide and grip, compares very well to my other high end skins. Glue sticks but comes apart easy enough, I use the skinsavers cut in half in the field. The tail attachment looks like it would fit a variety of boards, although they might be a little heavier for it. Half a season on them and have held up well so far. Overall my best performing skins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacek from Swallowtail dilemma Hi BD I just got your skins and am a bit puzzled on how to fit them on my Rossignol Sushi Split. Board has a swallowtail that is not very pronounced and your user guide does not seem to take this into consideration. Would you have any tips on how to fit it properly before I waste a pair of brand new skins. Your help is greatly appreciated. Chat option would be awesome too! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by steamdonkey from So Light! These a super light compared to my old skins, and dry much faster. They do kind of stretch out after some use and being wet, so make sure to cut/clip them with that in mind. Also, get an extra set of tail clips to carry with you. The on/off design is awesome, but I had one fall off recently. Otherwise, these skins are amazing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sethdylan from So far these skins work are great! These are the first pair of skins I have owned but after a few tours they seem to be work perfect! I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a new pair, or their first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dm11 from great skins, carry extra tail clips After a handful of tours on these skins, I am very happy with the performance. However, today I lost a tail clip. I'd recommend buying a couple extra tail clips for these and keeping them on hand. Just noticed BD is out of stock of these clips online, must be a popular item...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jason4 from Great design, could use better glue. I got these a few weeks ago but was waiting for more snow to take my new splitboard out. The new tail clip design fits very well on my Lib Tech Spltboard but probably wouldn't work very well on a swallow tail design. The skins didn't glide very well at first but broke in quickly today. The downside is that the glue left a tacky film on my base. I'm hoping with more use that won't happen anymore. I wasn't very careful to keep the glue warm or dry over multiple laps today and it held up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Forrest from Optimal efficiency Optimal efficiency with the GlideLites. With the addition of the new STS tail clip attachment their adjustable to fit any splitboard shape and length. A consistent mix of mohair and nylon allows me grip for the way up and glide when touring. Nicely packable and lightweight to fit into jacket for quick laps on storm days. Love these skins.
