Sidecut = 44 - 44 - 44
good stability at high speed
Carbon fibre + glassfibre lamination on the top and bottom = Excellent rigidity
sold with Rottefella Xcelerator bindings with 233g quick lock system NNNstandard
1 - Choosing the right SIZE - Skate 900
The size of a ski is chosen according to your weight rather than your height.
SKI SKATE 900
- 55 to 65 kg = 181 cm
- 65 to 75 kg = 181 cm
- 70 to 90 kg = 188 cm
- 90 to 120 kg = 188 cm
- 100 to 130 kg = 193 cm
You must also take into account your level of ability – a long ski optimizes glide performance and speed
2 - A sintered base, for a superior glide performance
The base is the part of the ski in contact with the snow. It is made of polyethylene (HDPE), which can be extruded or sintered during the manufacturing process.
The base of the 900 ski is made of sintered HDPE, which is a plastic powder of a high molecular weight that is heated, compressed, and cut into a plate.
This process produces a more dense base and delivers superior glide performance and durability.
3 - XCELERATOR skate ski bindings – the technology to help you go faster!
All of our skis are sold with Rottefella bindings that are compatible with the NNN, Prolink, and Turnamic standards.
The 900 skis are equipped with the Rottefella XCELERATOR skate bindings - Quick lock system
The binding can be easily moved without tools to suit your needs.
4 - Waxing, the secret to durability!
When buying the skis, prepare the base so that it has optimal glide performance. Wax it several times consecutively so that the base is properly "nourished".
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 = Construction of a ski
Our skis are designed using a "sandwich" process: by layering different materials in the core of the ski and across its entire width.
The final product is assembled with a press.
CORE = the centre of the ski: wooden (solid or with channels) or composite (honeycomb or Nomex®)
BASE = Part in contact with snow: it is made of sintered or extruded high density polyethylene (HDPE).
GRIP = grip area under the ski
SIDECUTS = width of a ski at the nose, waist, and tail
