Sidecut = 44 - 44 - 44
good stability at high speeds
Carbon fibre lamination and glass fibre = Stiffness and Light weight

sold with Rottefella Xcelerator bindings with NNN standard quick lock system
1 - Choosing the right SIZE
Choose ski size according to your weight and not its length.
SKI SKATE 550:
- 45 to 55 kG = 174 cm
- 50 to 65 Kg = 181 cm
- 60 to 75 Kg = 188 cm
- 75 to 90 Kg = 188 cm
- 90 to 110 Kg = 193 cm
You must also take into account your level, a long ski optimizes slide and speed
2 - A sintered base, for superior slide
The base is the part of the ski that is in contact with snow, it is made from polyethylene (PEhd), the manufacturing process is either extrusion or sintering.
The base of the ski 550 is in sintered PEhd, made from a plastic powder with high molecular weight, heated, compressed, and cut into slabs.
This process enables higher density of the sole and therefore better slide and resistance.
3 - XCELERATOR skate bindings, the technology that will increase your speed!
All of our skis are sold with Rottefella bindings that are compatible with the NNN, Prolink, and Turnamic standards.
The 550 skis are fitted with Rottefella XCELERATOR PRO bindings.
You can easily move the binding without tools to adapt it to your needs.
It is adaptable thanks to the move system, enabling you to move the binding without unstrapping.
4 - Waxing, the secret of durability!
After purchase, we recommend that you prepare the base of your skis for them to reach their optimal speed, several consecutive waxings to "nourish" the base are recommended.
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 = Ski structure
Our skis are made with a "sandwich" structure: layering different materials in the ski's core and throughout its full length.
The final product is assembled using a press.
CORE = centre of the ski: in wood (solid or with channels) or composites (honeycomb or Nomex®)
SOLE = Part in contact with the snow, it is made from high density polyethylene (PEhd), sintered or extruded.
Kick zone = grippy area under the ski
SIDECUTS = width of the ski at the tip, waist and tail
