Klister Cushion?

2/1/2011 - By Chris Hall

Using hard wax, we often do a hard-over, putting the softer wax underneath as cushion and using the colder on top so it doesn't ice, and then might wear away as the day warms, snow gets warmer. Is the same process ever used with klister?

Available at your favorite Atomic dealer now is the new SNS Wedge 60. Putting these on your skis is almost like giving them a banned substance, only these new 60mm Wedges have been approved by the FIS and IBU.

A perfect wax, and structure, for each snow condition

The Swix team ran many tests over the 24 hours preceding the distance freestyle event at US Nationals and was able to identify waxes and structure patterns that were running very fast and used my many of the teams and athletes racing on Thursday.

Our wax tip was for a super thick and short application (in multiple layers) of Base Green Binder. Simple as that. In testing, this solution went about as well as the best klister wax solutions.

I was skeptical at first, but these guys quickly won me over the first time I used them. It's SO much easier carrying and keeping track of ski boots using BootMates. Highly recommended!

Salomon's new high-end boots feature the RS17 outsole: the front pin that is now 17 mm behind the front of the boot instead of the 10 mm (RS10) of past years. How does this affect people with older boots and older bindings?

Generally, we can say that linear structure and broken linear structure (V) are mostly used in classic races. Screw and cross-structures often give a good “feeling ” in free technique (skating) races.
