Go for it... BD says they are designed for skis w/ a waist width of >110mm, and they are 160mm wide, so just about right for a Mojo. Only possible issue is that the BD skins come with tip loops already installed, so you would have to remove the screws, or buy a second set of tip loops. Maybe you could arrange a custom order from BD w/o tip-loops installed?
i cant think of a time when i am looking for less skin under my split, it seems like all the skin tracks are too steep to get any glide anyways, sometime i end up slipping backwards on icy skin tracks so, I will take all the skin i can get.

You attach the skin loop yourself, so I'd be fine there.
As far as less skin for traction, it doesnt seem to be a problem. With our splits as wide as they are, you still have a TON of fur on the snow! Not to mention, out here in the EAST where our approaches are loooong and rolling, any help w/ glide and weight is a good thing.
BD Ascension skins are what Voile uses. They buy the material and make them into the Tractor Skins. the Ascension Split is just missing the material in the center.
Also the BD tip connector works great on a splitty, it is the tail attachment you need to worry about. The missing split strip on these will not adhere to the base of the board and may take on snow and come loose.

I just received my split skins for my new board. Looks like the stock tip attachment can be set up asym no problem to fit a splitboard. These are crazy light as well, seems like about a 4 ounce weight saving per skin, huge! I will be cutting off the tail attachment, I never need 'em.
maybe this is a dumb question, but i just got my split skins and they have about a half inch overhang on either side... do i leave that or do i trim them down? i'm using a voile mojo board. if i trim them down, there will be less fur and a bit fat strip of nylon down the middle..?? im a confused gumby...
