Re: Skin ski questions

As far as dealing with icing (correction: soaked skins) in skin skis, two methods have worked for me. The first i tried was the start aerosol HF spray (~$30) and seems to work well. The other is the toko hot wax method I learned from the Toko booth at the 2017 Birkie. I’ve done it twice on my older ...

Rottefella Move binding?

Re: Replacement and alternative skins for Skin-type skis?

Hi all! Sorry if I'm hijacking this post, I'm new to this forum. A couple weeks ago I picked up a pair of used Salomon RC Skin skis at an area ski swap but the skin inserts looked pretty beat up. Heard that they were used at the birkie last year. I'm guessing some klister got on the skins and the ow...
