SKIN SKIS

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

According to the test, this waxing will work both for 70 km (start 8:25/9:00) and for 55 km (start 11:00)

Good Luck!
