HOW TO TRIM YOUR BLACK DIAMOND SKINS

Wasatch Classics: Skiing the Y Couloir with Noah Howell

GlideLite Mix STS Climbing Skins is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skins I've had many pairs of skins over the years and these are the best IMO. I have torn the rubber tail piece on a couple pair but BD has put a new one on. You can't go wrong with these skins. My only advice is don't do what I did once which was to put them on skis that had been waxed but not properly scraped. The wax will transfer to the ski and compromise adhesion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a bit of break in Best balance of weight, durability, stickyness and glide that I have found. Easy enough to fit to your skis. Lasts one season for me, 2 days a week in mellow terrain in Teton County.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near perfect skins I have several pairs of these for different skis. Basically, it is all the skin you should need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for everyday use At first, these skins did not feel like they could hold up very well. I was on the Ascensions for a long time until they eventually wore off on me. The Hyperlite skins are rad though, they have been used multiple times a day for 70 days straight so far and no problems! I will say the first week of use, you will have to take your skins off using your hands instead of the standing position, the glue is very strong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skins I have used a number of different brands of skins and hands down these are the best skins out there. They dry quick even if you forget them in your pack after a long day of skiing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance The skins are a great value. They perform really well in just about any snow condition. I’ve used the Ascensions STS full nylon and the GlideLite mix are definitely a notch above. They glide better and are far more supple and packable without sacrificing performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skins They have great grip and glide, shipped quickly, and were very easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skins I've had these for 2 seasons, ~25 days on them, they're awesome, they climb well and glide really well. The glue is great and is rarely left behind on the bases. The skin saver and clips are great but the bag is junk, minor issue though. I will be buying another set for my new skis when they are back in stock
