All major ski manufacturers including Rossignol, Fischer, Madshus, and Atomic offer a classic ski that bridges the gap between a waxable ski and a wax-free functional ski based on the traditional fish scale. For harsh waxing conditions, Nordic skiers have previously resorted to wax-based performance skis, with the impact area containing a foot pattern that would otherwise be known as fish scales. However, these skis are slow due to the tension caused by the scales, but they work in difficult conditions, especially when one does not want to apply the cluster. For many, difficult or changing conditions make it difficult to determine the right wax. In cetain conditions, this new zero or rubber base ski line performs well. It works best at zero degrees Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit as well as in wet snow. At zero degrees or in wet snow, this ski may be best for racing or just training. Several national skiers have competed in this type of equipment and performed well. But these skis do not work in all conditions, so understand your limitations when hitting the trails.
Rossignol calls its skiing a rubber-based ski, while Fisher calls it a zero-base ski, but basically different manufacturers offer these options for regular waxing. Wax-free skiing requires a bit of specialized preparation in the wax area to maximize impact. The affected area should be roughened and then treated with some antifreeze fluid such as the new Swix Zero spray. Another manufacturer recommends roughening the base with 120-180 grit sandpaper and instructing you not to apply anything to the material, kick wax or apply any other method. Just let go With sand paper, you can adjust the adhesion depending on the moisture content of the snow. It is up to you to decide which one is best for your particular climate and situation. Anyone who has used this classic tire-based ski will find that they have to test skis in different conditions to see when they work best. Most of them also play with the roughness of the area to get the full shot. In exceptional cases of ice or dry snow, this may not be the right tool for the job.
Rossignal offers the World Series Series Classic Ski Rubber Stand with high performance for racers and technical skiers. The new carbon tip reduces the ski weight by 20-30 grams. The shorter, lower tip allows for less swing weight and better maneuverability. The honeycomb core is lightweight and offers excellent compression and strength. Each rubber ski has a NIS (Nordic Integrated System) screen that allows easy connection installation. Excellent slip can be achieved by adjusting the back joint to remove the adhesion area from the snow. Sandpaper can be adjusted depending on the moisture content of the snow.
The classic Fisher RCS zero-based ski has slide areas that have already been waxed with Swix fluoro. Zero Fisher Cake Zone material is well placed. It stopped right where the end of the wax pocket ended. This makes Fisher easy to ride and fast skiing out of the box. Madshus and Atomic also produce similar technology.
Most of them invest in this type of waxless ski when they buy other classic skis. Since these skis perform best at zero degrees or in humid conditions, if your area often has this type of condition, these skis may be the best skis for training or racing. At zero degrees Celsius or in wet snow, these skis may be the fastest skis around. If the situation is right, you can say no to Klister with zero-based technology.
