Classic skiing

People who love skiing know that there are two types of cross-country skis. These are classic cross-counrty skis and skating skis. In this section of the online shop Urheiluperhe, we offer several models of classic Peltonen, Madshus, Salomon and others skis to choose from. What are classic skis?

Skis designed for classic skiing are quite soft. Elasticity, as in the case of skating equipment, is not characteristic of them. This is due to the need to ensure maximum contact of the soles of the skis with the snow, which makes it possible to achieve the optimal speed along the track with acceptable efforts.

Thus, the main part of the load on a classic ski falls on its middle part. It can be noted that the nose of the skis is more noticeably twisted than in the case of skating equipment.

As a rule, classic skis are waxed with the same type of wax over the entire surface: it is usually not necessary to form "braking" areas. But a lot depends on the configuration of a particular track, as well as on the mode of operation of the skis. If they are used by a professional, then a more careful approach to lubrication is expected. In this case, it may be necessary to select certain types of it in various combinations.
