SKIN SKIS

If you are using skis with integrated skins we recommend to clean the skins with N18 Skin Cleaner PRO and then use N17C Swix Skin Care PRO Cold to improve the skins glide properties.

If you feel unsecure how to apply klister and glide go to: www.swixschool.com

We wish everybody a nice trip!
