Fästvalla cross-country skis with can walla

Cleaning - We start by preparing the attachment zone

  1. Scrape away the old can gall with a sickle and a guideway sickle. There are special sickles for fixed wax that we recommend. Then apply Wax Remover , making sure it does not end up on the sliding surfaces. Wait for 30 seconds. Wax Remover dissolves remaining wax. Now you can wipe the attachment zone with Fiberlene. In the case of smeared walls, a fibertex cloth is advantageously used first. Then let the ski rest for 10 minutes so that all the wax evaporates.

    Cleaning the attachment zone from tin cans:

  1. Use sandpaper (grit P80 - P120) on the attachment zone of the ski so that the surface is roughened. This means that the wall adheres better to the surface.


  2. Always use a base wall at the bottom to get a good wear resistance. One layer depending on snow type.

  3. Heat up the base wax with a well-cleaned wax iron set to 100 degrees. Let cool for a minute and smooth with a synthetic block.


  4. Put on the anchorage for today's fore. Choose according to temperature and snow type.
    Place 4-6 thin and even layers on the attachment zone of the ski. Better many thin layers than few thick layers. You can thin out the last layers at the ends and only put them in the middle. Synthetic block between layers.
