EXPLANATION MAINTENANCE SERVICES

SMALL SKI
In a small ski maintenance service your skis will first be cleaned and pre-sharpened. Then the steel edges will be sharpened to the right angle and the base layer will be given a good structure by stone grinding. Then the steel edges are tuned for good grip and easy turning. Finally, your skis will be warmly waxed and polished as a finishing touch.

SMALL SUPER SKI
In a small ski super service your skis will first be cleaned and pre-sharpened. After that the steel edges will be pre-sharpened and the base layer will be given the optimal vario structure by stone grinding. Then the steel edges are radially tuned for an extremely good grip and even more turning power. Finally, your skis are pre-heated by infrared heat, after which they are given a warm wax layer twice and polished as a finishing touch.

LARGE SKI
In case of a major ski maintenance, your skis will first be cleaned and roughly pre-sharpened so that the deeper damages will be pressed closed by the P-Tex Master. Then the excess filling material will be ground away and the base layer will be given a new structure by means of stone grinding. Then the steel edges are ground and tuned for good grip and easy turning. Finally, your skis will be warmly waxed and polished as a finishing touch.

LARGE SUPER SKI
In a large ski super service, your skis will first be cleaned and roughly pre-sharpened so that the deeper damages are pressed by the P-Tex Master. Then the excess filler material will be ground away and the base layer will be given the optimal vario structure by stone grinding. Then the steel edges are sharpened and radially tuned for an extremely good grip and even more turning power. Finally, your skis are pre-heated by infrared heat and then they are waxed twice and polished as a finishing touch.

SMALL SNOWBOARD
In a small snowboard maintenance, your snowboard will be cleaned and pre-sharpened. Then the steel edges are sharpened to the right angle and tuned for good grip and easy turning. In the end, the snowboard is provided with a warm wax layer and polished for a finishing touch.

SMALL SUPER SNOWBOARD
In a small snowboard super service your snowboard will be cleaned and pre-sharpened. After that, the steel edges are pre-sharpened and the base layer is provided with the most optimal vario structure by stone grinding. Next, the steel edges are radially tuned for an extremely good grip and even more turning power. Finally, your snowboard is pre-heated by infrared heat and provided with a warm wax layer twice, and polished as a finishing touch.

LARGE SNOWBOARD
In a large snowboard maintenance service, your snowboard will first be cleaned and roughly pre-sharpened. The P-Tex Master and the hand filler gun will close the deeper damages. After that, the excess filling material will be ground away and the base layer will be ground flat. After that, the steel edges are sharpened and tuned for good grip and easy turning.

WHY CHOOSE A 'SUPER TREATMENT'

  • Vario structure: better drainage, which means better speed maintenance
  • Radial tuning edges: nose and tail will be sharpened in a different angle, which ensures smoother turning ability and better grip in curves
  • Infrared waxing: more intensive waxing method for better sliding ability

DOING YOUR OWN MAINTENANCE

If you always wanted to wax and sharpen your skis or snowboard yourself, have a look on this page to find out what it takes.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY SKIS OR SNOWBOARD?

If you want to keep your skis or snowboard in top condition, you should take good care of your equipment. The belay (running surface of the ski/snowboard) should not dry out, the steel edges should remain sharp and rust-free, and the ski bindings should be checked every year. You can bring your skis or snowboard to our shops, but a lot of the work can also be done yourself.

This page explains how to maintain your equipment yourself in rough steps, and the video shows which material you need.

WHAT CAN I DO MYSELF?

A lot of maintenance can be done yourself. For simple maintenance jobs, such as waxing and sharpening, you don't need a lot of equipment. Ideal for updating your equipment during a holiday.

WAXING

Waxing a snowboard or ski is quite simple. Wax regularly, a well waxed ski/snowboard is more durable but above all it glides much better. Before waxing, make the snowboard or skis dry and clean. Make sure the ski/snowboard is at temperature (not freezing). Melt and spread the wax on the base with an iron. Spread the wax in the direction of the ski. The wax must never smoke. If the wax begins to smoke during melting it will lose all its gliding properties. When the wax is dry, scrape off all excess wax with a special wax scraper (hard plastic plate) in pushing movements in the direction of glide. Finally brush the wax with a special wax brush in the direction of glide (this creates grooves in the wax which make the ski glide even better)!

HOW OFTEN?

Regular waxing is a must. Once a week is certainly not excessive. If you carry out other maintenance work on your skis or board in addition to waxing, do this before waxing. Waxing is literally the finishing touch.

WHICH TYPE OF WAX?

There are many types on the market. From extremely expensive competition waxes to cheaper universal waxes. If you do not ski to a tenth of a second a universal wax, which is suitable for all temperatures, will do just fine. Possibly, for the real hobbyist, several waxes are for sale in order to prepare the skis properly for every temperature. But again a good all-round wax works fine for most skiers. Personally I wax a lot with a so-called cold wax, because this wax is harder and keeps the ski in condition for longer. At the moment we have 4 basic waxes in our range:

  • Betamix Red; the basic wax. Ideal to use as a first wax layer.
  • Alphamix Yellow; for the warmer temperatures and good to use for waxing skis/snowboards clean.
  • Ultramix Blue: for colder temperatures.
  • Indoor hot wax: because the wax is harder than the other three, this is the perfect base if you do a lot of indoor skiing/snowboarding.

On top of the basic wax layer you can easily apply another layer to increase your glide speed. If you apply a fluorine wax (increases speed), make sure that you never use the fluorine wax as a base layer. This causes the pores to burn and the skis to dry out.
