    FAQ

      Why and how to brush skis?

      You brush skis to get rid of any excess glide wax and to polish the surface. First, use a coarse brush, immediately after scraping, such as a bronze brush, then polish with a nylon brush to finish.

      What brushes are used to brush away glide wax?

      We have different brushes with different features. Brushes are used to freshen up the ski base, remove dirt from the glide zone and to brush away glide wax after heating.

      We recommend a combi brush or bronze brush and to polish with a nylon brush to finish.

      For beginners who want to glide skis, we recommend a combi brush consisting of bronze and nylon. The bronze brush is used to remove glide wax from the ski base, while the nylon brush polishes the surface.

      In what order do you use the different brushes?

      We recommend a combi brush or bronze brush and polish with a nylon brush to finish.

      1. Removing excess glide wax with a bronze brush
      2. Polishing with a nylon brush

      First, use the coarsest brush, then a finer one to get into the grooves properly. You can also use roto brushes. For roto brushes, we have good combi brushes in horsehair and steel or horsehair and nylon.

      What brushes do you need for downhill skis, snowboards and cross-country skis?

      You can use the same for everything. What you need is a coarse steel/bronze/horsehair brush and a fine nylon brush for final polishing.

      When using it for all types of skis and snowboards, it’s a good idea to use the square hand-held brushes (e.g. the T179B Brush rectangular ) or single 100-mm wide roto brushes (e.g. the T16M Rotobrush horsehair ).

      You can use a hand-held wire brush and a hand-held nylon brush for almost everything. If you want to use a roto brush, you must use a drill that holds approx. 1500RPM and use a 100-mm brush in horsehair and nylon.

      What brushes do you need as a beginner, for training or for competition?

      It depends on your desired result, how much time you want to spend and your budget. You will get better results by using different brushes. If you're planning to prep multiple pairs of skis, it’s worth investing in a roto brush. Here are our recommendations:

      Beginner: Combi brush

      Training: Handheld Steel/Bronze Brush and Nylon Brush

      How to use Swix roto wool

      How to use the Swix roto brush

      Roto brushes are attached to a drill that has a speed of approximately 1500 revolutions per minute. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure, but let the brush do the work. Brush away from you, preferably in the gliding direction. First use a coarse horsehair brush and then a fine nylon brush to polish.

      Which vacuum cleaner can be used with Roto Cover Suction?

      Roto Cover Suction will reduce dust in your waxing booth.

      We recommend using a vacuum cleaner that is easy to wash out. Do not use your normal vacuum cleaner. When you prepare skis and use brushes, there will be a very fine dust that can quickly ruin an ordinary vacuum cleaner. A normal vacuum cleaner will then get the filter full of glider dust and will potentially be destroyed.

      Now you can also buy a flexi hose and attach it to the roto cover with suction and suction on the waxing iron. You may also want to angle the roto cover.
