I think you're right. The little nobs on the tips will allow use of the "D" ring on a skin that is much narrower than these boards. Narrow skins would work so long as you don't try to do any steep traversing where the ski would be up on edge. That would be difficult to do with a ski this wide anyway. After climbing up, you will want to go down, therefore my concern for sidecut remains.

Standard tail clip attachment would work with these skis.
