STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Medium structure. Use hand structure on stone ground skis for better glide.

Swix Structure Tool: 1.0 mm linear structure (imprint roller that gives linear structure). Use medium pressure. Slightly lighter pressure in the front compared to the rear ski.

GLIDE:  Alternative 1 – easy:

  1. Iron in LF8X. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GLIDE:  Alternative 2 – more experienced:

  1. Iron in one layer of HF8X or DHF104 White Marathon. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Apply Cera F FC8X with an iron temperature of approx. 165°C. Make one continuous pass with the iron with a constant pressure – take one side of the groove at the time. Let cool approx. 10 min. Brush the powder away with a horsehair- or wild boar brush.
  3. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GRIP

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper.
  2. Spray on a thin layer of KB20 Green Base klister. Let dry 5 min.
  3. Apply one layer of KN44 Nero klister. It is important to apply a rather thin and even layer.
  4. Let the klister cool off, preferably outdoors.
  5. Cover the klister with 2-3 layers of VR55N Violet Grip Wax. Smooth carefully out between each layer.

If the temperature becomes warmer than in the forecast it is not necessary to cover the klister.

If you are using skis with integrated skins we recommend to clean the skins with N18 Skin Cleaner PRO and then use N17Z Swix Skin Care PRO Zero to improve the skins glide properties.

Swix is present at start with the last grip wax recommendations tomorrow.
