We are building a knowidge base

Learn from Us

Step-by-step we are setting up a knowledge base for skiers, Professionals or Armatures. Learn about the tools and how to use them to maximise the result of your preparation.
We will segment the knowledge base in Useful tools, Nordic Racing, Alpine Racing, Armature Nordic, and Free Ride Skiing.

FAQ Ski Preparation

  • Sharp metal scraper
  • Wax Cleaner
  • Fiber-tex + Hand cork
  • Wax iron with temp adjustment
  • Plastic scraper + Centre notch scraper
  • Rotor brush or Hand brush
  • Rotor cork or Hand cork
  • Rotor fleece or Hand fleece
  • Structure tool for grooves
  • Waxing table with ski support profile

Before starting the waxing procedure it is always good to examine the status of the ski.

  1. If the base is starting to get white spots in areas where you put pressure e.g. along the side edges or the main glide surface, it shows that you are running low on base wax in the ski base. If so, you should consider to apply a round of base wax on your skis.
  2. If you have run into gravel or that you damaged the edges you need to start removing strings of base material and make your edges smooth so that the ski travels friction-free on the snow. This you can do in a controlled manner with a stable sharp metal scraper.
  3. If the base of the ski is dirty you can use a wax iron to heat up the base carefully and clean with a cloth or cleaning paper to make sure your base is ready for the waxing procedure.
  4. In the preparation stage it is also useful to use a fiber-tex cloth together with a cork to drag from the front of the ski along the gliding direction to clean and make sure your base is clean and ready for waxing procedure.

After training or competition it is always good to give an extra base preparation to fill up the ski base with hot wax so that the glide performance can last longer before the ski base is running dry. If you have a ski that you use in cold conditions you should use a harder base wax from our ECO CORE assortment, and or if the skis are used for warmer conditions you can use a medium to soft hot wax to fill the base.

The base preparation is also good to protect the base while traveling to avoid scratches in the ski base.

Resting skis e.g. left over summer season do oxidate, and to reduce the effect of a ski that is running dry you should leave base wax on without scraping it off.

ECO RACE PARAFFIN's

We offer three different paraffins from warm to cold, ORANGE, RED, and WHITE. Our paraffins can be mixed, and also together with the additive waxes for the best balance to meet the specific conditions.

ECO RACE ADDITIVE's

Our additives are to be mixed into our ECO RACE paraffin's to enhance the performance of the specific conditions.

  • PINK, X-WET - Enhances the performance in wet and soft conditions to lower the friction.
  • BLACK, TRANSFORM - Enhances the performance in old dirty, or artificial show. The product has an antistatic effect and protect the base to collect dirt from the snow that reduce the glide performance of the ski.
  • GREEN, COLD POWDER - Works as a hardener for the paraffins and should be mixed in while using the paraffins to harden the product so you can achieve the best result in harsh and cold snow conditions. The target is to avoid the sharp snow crystals to grab onto the base of the ski.
ECO RACE LIQUID TOP FINISH

Our "liquid top finish" products enhance the performance in shorter races e.g. sprint races. We offer liquid sprays for warm, mid and cold conditions.

The liquid top finish can be used to enhance the glide on the skins for classic skis.

ECO RACE BLOCK TOP FINISH

Our block's enhance the glide and is suitable for sprint and longer races. We offer block's for warm, mid and cold conditions.

Based on the selected products we suggest that you start with the paraffin assortment and use the suitable additive products for the specific snow and weather conditions.

  • Start with melting on/rubbing on the hot wax in the desired mix for the best glide result.
  • Use the Wax Iron with a temperature that allows you to travel with the iron in a steady movement (do not stand still with the iron at one spot), from front and moving backwards. You make sure that the hot wax is properly meted behind the iron. If you are using to much heat you mostly see smoke effect from the over heating of the iron. If so tune down the heat to protect the base of the ski and to not destroy the additives in the ski wax.
  • Let the ski rest before you start the procedure of scraping of the paraffin. If you have the ability to move the skis outside it will cool down faster and you will shorten the resting time. Use your hand to feel the temperature of the base to define the status of the ski base. Moving to fast into a new iron application can result in that you damage the base when over heating the base.
  • To scrape the centre notch is sometimes easier to do directly before the paraffin has fully cooled down to avoid that you loose control and scratch your ski base. Then let the ski rest. ;)
  • After letting the ski rest you use the plastic scraper to remove the paraffin. Work in steady position from front to back par of the ski. Here you'll find that a solid waxing table is helping you to achieve a better result.
  • After removing the paraffin with the scraper you use a suitable brush to remove the left over paraffin and to give the ski a good finish.

You are now ready to use the skis. If you have decided to apply a top finish treatment you move on to the next point.

SNOOW offer two kinds of top finish products in the ECO RACE assortment, liquids or blocks.

Liquid Top Finish

Liquid top finish products are sprayed on to the ski base. you should then let the ski rest for 10-20 minutes. To finish the process you can use a fleece cloth of a rotor fleece to polish the skis as the final step.

Block Top Finish

The Block you rub on. You then have two choices to secure the finish on to the base. First option is to use hand cork or a rotor cork to get the additive into the base of the ski. You could also use a wax iron to carefully melt down the additive into the base (be careful not to use to much heat when the additive easily melt). Finally you can use a fleece cloth of a rotor fleece to polish the skis as the final step.
