TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

1 - Choosing the right SIZE

The size of a cross-country ski is chosen according to your proficiency and weight, not your height.

For the 500 ski with ski skins:
- 50-60 kg (110-132 lb) = 180 cm
- 55-70 kg (121-154 lb) = 185 cm
- 60-75 kg (132-165 lb) = 190 cm
- 70-85 kg (121-187 lb) = 195 cm
- 80-95 kg (176-209 lb) = 200 cm
- More than 90 kg (198 lb) = 205 cm

If you are between two sizes:
- For more comfort, choose the lower size to ensure the ski is more manoeuvrable.
- For more intense use, choose the larger size.

2 - SKIN grip, simplicity itself!

The grip of a cross-country ski is determined by the area at the centre of the base (under the ski).
It allows the ski to "grip" the snow and not slide when climbing, while ensuring a smooth glide on a flat surface and down a hill.
There are 3 types of systems: fish scale, grip wax, and skins.

The 500 ski has a mixed skin grip.
Skins offer the same quality grip as a fish scale base, but they have the advantage of not making any noise and do not require waxing.

3 - PERFORMANCE bindings, the key to an optimal experience!

All of our skis are sold with Rottefella bindings that are compatible with the NNN, Prolink, and Turnamic standards.

The 500 skis with ski skins are equipped with the classic Rottefella PERFORMANCE bindings, which are more suited to intermediate skiers.
The binding can be moved forwards or backwards to your preferred position using the key provided: For more grip, move the binding forwards; for better glide performance, move the binding backwards.
It features a user-friendly locking mechanism.

5 - An extruded base—the right balance between glide performance and durability

The base is the part of the ski that is in contact with the snow.
It plays an important role in defining a ski's performance. It is made of polyethylene (HDPE) with an extruded or sintered HDPE manufacturing process.

The base of the 500 ski is made of extruded HDPE, produced from plastic beads heated and laminated using a roller to create a panel.
This process gives the base good glide performance and durability.

6 - Waxing, the secret to durability!

When buying skis, we recommend that you prepare the base well to achieve an optimal glide. Several consecutive waxings are best in order to "nourish" the base properly.

To maintain the performance of your skis, don't forget to wax them regularly!

To wax your skis, check out our tutorials on our Inovik YouTube channel or make an appointment in your Decathlon workshop.

GLOSSARY = Parts of a ski

Our skis are designed according to a "sandwich" process: different materials are layered at the core of the ski and over its entire width.
The end product is assembled using a press.

CORE = heart of the ski: made of wood (solid or with channels) or composite (honeycomb or Nomex®)
BASE = part in contact with the snow, made of sintered or extruded high-density polyethylene (HDPE)
GRIP = hold area beneath the ski
SIDECUT = width of a ski (tip, waist, and tail)
