Neuro wrote: Cleaning: Normal ski clean liquid and Fiberlene cleaning paper according to Petter Soleng Skinstad who won the 'Fredagsbirken' on skinskis.

Note that the Salomon use synthetic material for their skins so that's why one can use petroleum based cleaners like this. Not sure that's advisable on mohair skins.

But maybe synthetic gives better glide untreated, as Skinstad won the race without having touched the skins in any way.

Looks like synthetic skins is a bit cheaper to run.

Correction to that, Salamon has now checked more, and it turns out it's actually goat hair.
