Recommendation:

Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite for durability 

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HF Yellow mixed with Ski*Go HF Violet 50/50

Fluoro Powder: Ski*Go C22 Powder
Topcoat: Ski*Go C22 block/C22 liquid mixed and rotofleeced together

Structure: Holmenkol Structure tool with 2 rollers, 2 passes

Kick: Start with a thin layer of Rode Chola, klisters to test are Ski*Go HF Yellow, Ski*Go HF Uni, Guru Red or Red/Silver, Holmenkol Black Spez, Rex Universal, Start Uni Plus.

 

Test Discussion-

We prefer to mix the Ski*Go HF Yellow paraffin with HF Violet in coarse man-made snow even when wet.  For klister we have had good luck mixing the Ski*Go HF Yellow with Ski*Go HF Uni or HF Violet in wet, coarse man-made.  Guru Red, Guru Red/Silver, and Holmenkol Bk/Spez can also be good in extremely wet conditions.  We will be testing kick and topcoats on Friday morning at the venue, check back for results.

 

CONCLUSIONARY NOTES – BNS will have a table set up and will be testing top coats, kick, and hand structure at the venue.  Come by to get our latest test results and recommendations.
