STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Medium structure. Use hand structure on stone ground skis for better glide.

Swix Structure Tool: 0.5 mm broken structure or 1.0 mm linear structure, use imprint roller and light pressure.

 

GLIDE:  Alternative 1 – easy:

  1. Iron in LF6X. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

 

GLIDE:  Alternative 2 – more experienced:

  1. Iron in one layer of HF6X or DHF104WhiteMarathon. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Apply Cera F FC6X with an 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 the powder away with a horsehair- or wild boar brush.
  3. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

For those who participate in the relay Cold HVC as topping will give a boost.

 

GRIP

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper.
  2. Iron in a layer of VG35 Green Base Binder. Lett cool off.
  3. Iron in a layer of V30 Blue wax. Lett cool off.
  4. Apply 2-3 layers of VR40 Blue wax. Smooth carefully out between each layer.
  5. Apply 2-4 layers of VR50 Violet wax. Smooth carefully out between each layer. You can adjust with VR55N.

 

If there is no snowfall the KX30 Ice klister will be a good base for the grip waxes.

 

This wax tip is based on testing done in the track and the weather forecast. It is important to consider the development of the weather continuously.

 

Final recommendations for the Birkebeiner Race will be published Friday.
