We help you find the right ski for you
Proper skiing is the key to having great skiing experiences. To get the right skis, there are a number of factors that come into play:
– Body height
- Technique and level
– Area of use
You do not need more than one pair of skis to train and get nice ski trips, but if you want the optimal skis for each lead area, you need several pairs of skis. Below is an overview of the most common divisions of classic skiing.
Dry snow skiing
These are the softest skis in the ski park for the cold conditions. The reason why it is called dry snow skiing is that it is ski for dry and cold conditions where the snow is dry and airy. Having soft skis on such a trail means that you have more sole surface in contact with the snow. In combination with a nice structure on the ski, you will then tie the desired amount of water to the ski and you get better glide. In addition, dry wax requires a long contact surface and solid contact to achieve the desired secure attachment. Skis for dry snow typically have a half-weight value at a peak of 0.7-1.2. More about this when measuring cross-country skis.
Recommended slip BSK-6 or BSK-7
Allroud is the most common ski, and if you have a pair, this is what you should have. It is in principle a ski that should be able to work well on cold conditions and glue. With a medium span, it means that you will be able to attach to the cold waxes and be able to put under some glue without it having to subbe too much.
Recommended slip BSK-7
Reset skis are often also called "glue with tires" skis. These are the skis you use when you can not use Zero skis, ie if it is a little too dry and cold or if it is a little too hard / icy. These are often excellent skis for use on Birken. Birken is a long run with a lot of wear and often requires many layers of lubrication under the skis in order to have sufficient grip all the way. In addition, it is often transformed and between -2 - +2 degrees during the period Birken runs.
Recommended release BSK-7 or BSK-8
These are the miracle skis that make the difficult conditions around 0 degrees a breeze. Perfect for both training and competition. By adjusting the felt under the skis with different grades of sandpaper, you can use them in quite wider conditions than just 0 degrees. The zero felt has become even better in recent years, especially on slip and slip.
Recommended slip is BSK-Zero
These are the skis you use in wet (plus degrees in the air) conditions. Under wet conditions you experience suction, which means that there is too much water in contact with the skis. You therefore want to have sticky skis that split a little at the tip and end, so that you get less contact area. In contrast to dry skis, we want stickier skis with a coarser structure that allows us to drain away excess water.
Recommended slip is BSK-8
Measurement of classic cross-country skis
Final span is measured at 7cm behind the balance point, and indicates the stiffness of the ski. The weight that makes the ski make contact at the point is final tensioned.
Dry snow skiing: Body weight x 0.5-0.55
Zero guide skis: Body weight x 0.55-0.65
Stickers: Body weight x 0.60-0.70
The chamber height (H) on the ski is measured at half body weight with the balance point of 14cm.
Dry snow skiing: 0.7-1.2mm
Zero guide ski / Zero: 1.0-1.5 mm
H - The peak value at half weight
F - The peak value at full weight
0.1mm - The wax mark
0.2mm - Zero guide mark - Adhesive with coverage and softer wax
0.3mm - Sticker
Φ - Zero point. Measured using 0.1mm shims full weight 14cm behind the balance point. The zone indicates a pocket that is not in contact with the snow when standing on the ski with full weight.
