Time to go on a diet

These skis seem to offer decent performance and a good price. I think they are quite soft. I weight about 97kg and this turns out to be too much for the 205cm lengths. I did a 50km marathon on them and I was getting passed a lot in the gliding sections of the course. They might be right if I lose 5kg.

Manque d'accroche dès que la pente s'accentue un peu. Il me semble qu'il n'y a pas assez de peau dessous. Je n'ai utilisé les skis que sur neige fraîche et bien froide, j'ai peur que les montées soient compliquées sur neige dure. Par contre très bonne glisse à la descente, très maniable, facile à diriger. produit à améliorer

Agréablement surpris.

Ces skis sont impressionnants, la glisse est superbe et la peau de retenue fait très bien le travail. Je suis vraiment content de ne plus utiliser de fart de retenue!

1 - choosing the right size

The size of a cross-country ski is chosen according to your proficiency and height. For the 500 ski with ski skins: - 110 to 130 lbs = 70.9" - 120 to 155 lbs = 72.8" - 130 to 165 lbs = 74.8" - 155 to 190 = 76.8" - 175 to 210 = 78.7" - More than 200 lbs = 80.7" If you are between 2 sizes: - For more comfort, choose the lower size to ensure the ski is more maneuverable. - 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 center 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 system: 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 optimized 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 forward or backward to your preferred position using the key provided: For more grip, move the binding forward/for better glide performance move the binding backward. 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 of sustainability!

When buying skis, we recommend that you prepare the base well to achieve an optimum 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)



Product testing

All of our products are tested in the field under real conditions by our panel of testers made up of professional instructors and coaches as well as regular cross-country skiers. Our skis are also subjected to laboratory tests: resistance, torsion, glide and camber.

Storage instructions

At the end of the season, wax your skis and store them indoors in a protective bag if you have one.
