STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Medium. Remember to use hand structure on stone ground skis for better glide.

SWIX Structure Tool: 1.0 mm linear structure (imprint roller that gives straight structure) (T423). Use higher pressure on the back of the base.

GLIDE: Alt. 1

  1. Spray on HF6XL Liquid and let dry for at least 15 minutes. Apply the product in temperatures above 10°C. To obtain the best performance it’s important to allow the wax film to dry entirely.
  2. Finish with the SWIX Blue Nylon Polish Brush.
  3. Apply RCP Zero powder (new powder). 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 up the powder with a stiff, black nylon brush. Continue brushing with a horsehair- or wild boar brush.
  4. Finish with the SWIX Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GLIDE: Alt. 2

  1. Iron in one layer of White Marathon DHF104. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Plexi Scraper, and brush with a SWIX Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Apply RCP Zero powder (new powder). 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 up the powder with a stiff, black nylon brush. Continue brushing with a horsehair- or wild boar brush.
  3. Finish with the SWIX Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GRIP – For safe grip

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper (Swix T330 or T0011).
  2. Iron in a thin layer of KX20 Green Base Klister and let the ski cool off. Alternatively apply a thin layer of KB20 Green Base Klister spray, and let dry.
  3. Apply one layer KN33 NERO klister.

GRIP – Alternative 2

At leg 1 and 2 grip wax is a very good alternative, but does not give as safe grip as klister.

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon     sandpaper (Swix T330 or T0011).
  2. Iron in a thin layer of KX20 Green Base Klister and let the ski cool off. Alternatively use
  3. Apply two layers of V30 Blue grip wax.
  4. Apply 2-3 layers of VR55N Violet on top.

SKIN SKIS

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