STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Fine/medium

Swix Structure Tool: 1.00 mm linear structure

GLIDE

  • Iron in PS8 or HS8 glider.
  • Let it cool down and scrape off the wax by using a plexi scraper.
  • Brush away all the residues of the wax with bronze brush T162 or steel brush T179.

Watch this video to learn how to apply hardwax on your skis.

Liquid glider:

  • Spray HS8 liquid glider onto the skis.
  • Let dry for 15 minutes at room temperature.
  • Polish with a soft blue nylon brush.

GRIP

  • Use sandpaper #100 to rub the kick wax area
  • Apply a thin layer with KB20 base klister. Let dry.
  • Apply one layer with KN 33 Nero klister.

Bring K22 and K21s universal klister in your backpack. We also recommend bringing a scrape, cork and VP55 in case the klister freezes.

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.

There will be an opportunity for waxing assistance at Kvarstad.

Happy trails!
