STRUCTURE

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

Swix Structure Tool: 0.75 mm linear structure (imprint roller that gives linear structure). Use light pressure. 

GLIDE – Quick & Easy

Fluor Free Option: Iron in CH6X and let cool off. Scrape off with a Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze Brush (T162) or Steel Brush (T179).

Liquid Option: Apply F4-100CC liquid glider with foam applicator.

GLIDE – Racing, more experienced

  1. Iron in one layer of HF6X. 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 FC6X 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 – 30K

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper.
  2. Iron in one layer of VG30 Blue Base Binder. Let cool off.

    How many layers of grip wax you should apply depends on the span of your ski.

  2. Apply one layer of VG30 Blue Base Wax. Cork out, or iron in and let cool off.

    How many layers of grip wax you should apply depends on the span of your ski.

SKIN SKIS

If you are using skis with integrated skins we recommend to clean the skins with N18 or N16 Swix Skin Cleaner and then use N17C Swix Skin Care PRO Cold or N15 Skin Care to improve the skins glide properties.

Swix is present at start on Saturday with updated recommendations. If you need help we apply grip wax for you at the cost of NOK 50.

We wish everybody a nice trip!
