Re: Necessity of wax-iron

Thank you all for your input. I muscled in a lot of polar yesternight and today we have snow so I will just go for a ride and see what happens. I will probably get a low tier iron in the future but i dont want to wreck my only one at the moment.

Re: Necessity of wax-iron

Necessity of wax-iron

Hi! I want to adopt polarwaxing my skis from tip to tail. I have no equipment for ironing however. Is this necessary or can i just cork the whole base? Last outing i tried this but with green wax because i could not procure polar. I now have polar and there is a forecast of snow. Am i somehow doomin...

Re: Help Me Learn How to Turn...

I feel that skiing down really gentle slopes is a nice way to learn. Steep enough to give you speed but mellow enough that you actually dont have to turn. That way you can just feel the snow and the edges of the skis without associated terror. Stop when you feel like. Do small turns when you feel li...

I was unable to source polar wax at the shop so i did the full length grip wax with swix green and blue in...

Re: Alpina Alaska Boots in very cold weather

Hi!
If you are in Scandinavia it is easy to get the Lundhags guide bc. This is a super warm boot. Classic Lundhags outer shell with removable felt insole. Its the only boot i have tried so i have not comparisons but i am happy with it and its super stiff and nice for the downhill.

Cheers/Petter

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

I had the 45mm mohairs last season full length for everything on Gamme. I see a substantial wear on the rear bit that seems to go beyond the camber. I just got replacement mohairs to use full length and now im going to cut down the worn part for flatter sections. I think economically there is logic ...
