STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Medium structure. 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 – Alt. 1

  1. Iron in one layer of White Marathon Fluoro Free (DHFF) at 155°C. 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. Finish with the SWIX Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GLIDE – Alternative 2

  1. Spray on CH7XL 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.

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 V45 Violet Special grip wax.
  5. Adjust with V50 Violet grip wax if slippery.

SKIN SKIS

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