Good as New

Use before Medium and Fine when needed. It quickly goes through a sealed ski base, letting you start fresh. Efficiently removes scratches and makes the skis even. Should also be used directly before stone grinding to optimize the result.


Perfect Structure

Reduce the existing structure and round off the edges of the base for low mechanical friction.


Long-lasting Glide

Always use before applying wax to remove micro hairs and round off the tips of the structure. Ensures low mechanical friction and creates an optimal surface for your glider.
