Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

Maybe it's not the width but the double camber of the skis you ski that make them faster. As far as for the down, skinny skis generally require more speed to work, but I'm not sure if they are faster.

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

The snow makes a difference but some brands make more noise than others. Wax kicked ass compared to scales the last two days. The previous two days not as much difference. As the snow got colder and dryer kick wax had much better glide and at least as good a kick as scales. Yesterday my Voile Insane...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

In a perfect world the snow would be deep enough so everybody would leave only one mark.

I may not agree with your gear choice but you do know how to eat out there.

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Good idea to try it out in the yard. I just did the same and found that my blue extra's not working. Luckily I have the option to switch to scales, although I may try violet.
