GRIP

  • Use sandpaper #100 to rub the kick wax area
  • Apply KB20 base klister spray. Let dry.
  • Apply one layer with K21s universal klister.
  • Apply KN44 Nero or K22 universal if the skis are too slippery.

SKIN SKIS

If you are using skis with integrated skins, we recommend cleaning the skins with N16 Swix Skin Cleaner and then use N15 Swix Skin Care to impregnate the skin.

It is difficult to predict the weather, but we have to trust the weather forecast from Yr. 

Bring a scrape, VP65, and cork in case you have to cover the klister.

Skin skis are a good alternative this day.

Happy trails!
