Like Butter!....or something

Comments about Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Pure STS:

These skins are the super glidey magic! No really, the pure mohair is very nice with low glide resistance and lightweight…..just what I wanted. Cutting them to fit was a piece of cake with the included tool and instructions but I definitely recommend following along with the BD video on skin trimming (you can still find it on the interwebs). They fold up nicely for stowage for the down and are much more flexible than the pure nylons. Only consideration is durability, these will not stand up to abuse (i.e. rock walking and gravel gliding) like tough nylon skins, but that should not be a surprise. Get these and get to the top ahead of your gang!

light, packable, good glide

Comments about Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Pure STS:

Mohair is amazing for glide, and an unsung benefit is less glopping on the "hot in the sun, cold in the shade" kind of days. I hate lifting my foot and seeing a huge clump of snow on the skin, and the mohair is less prone to this than any other skin I've had. with a touch of wax occasionally, glopping is over. I have noticed slightly less uphill grip than nylon, but only on sin tracks that are steeper than they should be.

Almost Perfect!

Comments about Black Diamond GlideLite Mohair Pure STS:

As a Canadian Ski Guide, I have found these 100% mohair skins to be the best all round skin on the market, by far. They glide so well you save about 30% energy over the day, and can keep a faster uphill pace. Grip is also good in most snow. The field replaceable tip loops and tail straps are crucial, something no other brand has. Only two minor cons: 1-They do slip more than the nylon or mixed skins when climbing in a well used or icy track, or in Coastal type or spring snowpacks. 2-the backing fabric is thin (but supple), so the edges tend to "curl" a bit when the skin gets older. Fix: add more glue along the edges!
