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). Only behind the binding and use light pressure.

GLIDE

  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), alternatively 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

This is a recommendation for Vasaloppet based on weather forecast for Sunday. We will come with a final recommendation tomorrow. As it looks now, no klister on Sunday.

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper (Swix T330 or T0011).
  2. Iron in one layer of VG35 green base wax. Let cool off.
  3. Iron in one layer of V30 Blue grip wax.
  4. Apply 4-6 thin layers of VR45 Light Violet grip wax.
  5. Adjust with VR55N Violet grip wax if slippery.

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.
