Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite

Race Paraffin: Holmenkol Racing Mix Mid

Fluoro Powder: Ski*Go OR Powder Topcoat: Ski*Go C22 Block

Structure: For Saturday, a linear structure for the heats will make a difference, probably a L04 in front and back and L200 in the back. For Sunday, the Finite V075 will be a good choice.

Kick: Guru Extreme 39 is a good starting point for kick. Application will be key here to keep skis fast enough for the sprint.


Test Discussion:

Testing was done by feel. Racing Mid was clear winner for paraffin layer and the LF Graphite will be key for durability.
