Treatment of ski skins for perfect glide

Colltex has always maintained an intensive exchange of experience with top athletes. They provide us with valuable inputs and, thus, help us optimize our products. To prevent snow build-up on and an icing over of your skins as far as possible – especially in extremely cold weather – we recommend that the skins be regularly treated with «skin+ski wax» or «eco skinproof». Both products were developed by colltex and specifically designed to meet the needs of customers and noticeably improve gliding properties. When walking, be careful to glide as perfectly as possible and NOT lift the ski, but SLIDE it. This reduces the risk of snow build-up and icing over. Extreme cold, frozen skins and cold skis can affect the adhesive properties of your skins. Therefore, regularly check the adhesion layer and, if necessary, re-coat the skins. Very important: NEVER bring the skins in from the cold into a warm place for assembly, as condensation will affect the adhesive properties.
