BLACK DIAMOND GIDELITE MOHAIR MIX KICKER SKINS
free shipping on orders of $99 & over (contiguous USA)
The all new, redesigned Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Mix Kicker Skins turn your waxable backcountry or telemark skis into touring skis by providing exceptional grip under foot for solid kick and glide and climbing grip on moderate uphill climbs. By leaving the tip and tail sections uncovered, the skis can glide efficiently over flat or rolling terrain. Made of a combination of 65% mohair and 35% nylon to optimize grip and glide, the Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Mix kicker skins are nearly 1/3 the weight of full-length climbing skins and are highly packable, so when stowed in the provided nylon ripstop storage bag in your pack, you wonít even know they are there.
A simple nylon strap and camlock buckle enables easy attachment to the skis (instructions also included). Black Diamondís outstanding Gold Label adhesive works in high and low temperature extremes (and all temps in between) and lasts season after glorious season. We recommend the Black Diamond Ascension STS climbing skins for serious vertical climbing.
SELECTING THE CORRECT WIDTH KICKER SKINS:
Simply determine the width of your ski (in millimeters), measuring the narrowest point at the middle of your skis (if ordering new skis from our website, look for the ski's sidecut dimensions & refer to the middle number). Then select the kicker skins width that is closest to the ski waist width but still less than the width. Example: if your ski's dimensions are 70mm tip - 60mm waist - 65mm tail, you would select the 50mm kicker skins. Easy-to-follow instructions included.
Traction for those who pack minimally, want good grip but also move quickly and efficiently over lower-angled terrain and won't be anticipating any major / steep vertical pitches. Compatible with any cross country / backcountry touring, ski mountaineering and telemark skis.

- Plush material is made of a mix of 65% mohair and 35% nylon to achieve the perfect balance of grip and glide
- Simple and clean camlock buckle and nylon strap enables easy attachment to ski
- Gold Label glue sticks in extreme low and high temps and has long lasting durability
- At 7.2 oz. per pair they are 1/3 the weight of full length skins
