[I got BD Glidelite 130mm skins on my split and apart from the fact that they're damn hard to pull apart before putting them on the board...

Doh! That was one of the things I was hoping to get away from...

Well, 130mm wide and sticky glue... No miracle!

But keeping the strip of cloth in the middle of the skin does help.

And you just have to get a good technique for pulling them apart:

1) put your board down on the snow

2) block the tail clip (STS) between your board and your boot (or a rock and your boot if there is an exposed rock around)

3) pull the tip clip of the skin with both hands

Much easier than trying to pull them apart just with your hands...
But only possible in a flatish area...

I have no problem pulling the skins apart. The Skins come with the strip down the middle and Cheat sheets are great....

Either you guys are all pussies, or have stronger glue than me...i dont know :wink:

Nah... I just don't use the cheat sheets. With very cold temperatures, if you use the cheat sheets, the skins don't stick well enought to the base of the board. We're talking about -20°C or lower, but this is pretty frequent in the Alps from december to febuary...
