Question about Armada T-Hall Skis

Open Question

Black ooze! I have just returned from skiing with my Salomon X Scream monocoque skis. I was giving them a wax before storing them for the next year when I noticed a black sticky ooze emanating from the Prolink strengtheners (?) fore and aft of the bindings. This was easily cleaned with white spirit. 1) Is this a problem? 2) Do the Prolinks contain some sort of oil? 3) Do I need to get this rectified before using them again? 4) If so, would an ordinary ski shop that offers tuning, at a resort, fix the problem? Thanks for your help.

    I noticed this on my X-Scream Series about a year ago. I suspect that there is some sort of gel in the prolink that gradually absorbs water over the years. It's sticky, and messy, but doesn't seem to affect the skis' performance yet, and I don't think that it's a safety concern. I'd quite like to stop it though.

    I've checked the Salomon web site for a contact, without success, so unless there is someone out there who can help I think we'll have to take our skis to a mechanic...

How to maintain my jet ski?

If you plan to store a jet ski in a garage, you will need to make sure it is dry and cool and with limited exposure to the sun. In general, you need to do what you can to prevent rust and other grime that eventually may cause mechanical issues.

Washing your jet ski is also needed after every use. You can use your car wash products. I also suggest to read the user's manual, it may include tips about maintaining your jet ski.

You can protect the engine with a special spray and water repellant.

If you plan to store your jet ski for a while, it is preferred that you will disconnect the battery.

What is the best brand of ski wax?

Brand is not so important as to the type of wax used. You want to make sure the wax is right for the conditions you will be riding. Some wax is harder than other wax and will work better in different conditions. Some wax is made for very cold temperatures -20 degrees Fahrenheit and below, some for intermediate temperatures, and some for warm temperatures, higher than 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Rub on waxes work well for an hour or two but quickly wear off. Hot waxing is best, but takes some time to apply and to learn how to do yourself, or usually costs at least $20 to have someone else do it for you.

It also depends on what type of riding you will be doing. If you are racing, you will want the best wax possible, and this is where brand and formula of the wax is important. It's best to talk to fellow racers in your area to find the best wax for that area's conditions if you are racing. Otherwise, any brand made for the temperatures you will be riding will be fine and any differences in speed from brand to brand will be unnoticeable.

Vertical adjustment on front binding. Salomon S810 Ti

If you can adjust vertical pressure then you should adjust it as follows.
Put a piece of normal paper (like A4 printer paper) on the toe bit (and heel for that matter) and clip in the boot so that the paper sits between the boot sole and the binding base surface. You should be able to pull the paper out from between the boot and binding without ripping the paper, but obviously without there being a noticeable gap.
If in doubt take it to a ski tech, a bit of cash might save you a broken leg! They might even be able to help you or advise free of charge.
