    Most people don't scape their skis enough after waxing, so you're just as likely to contaminate your stones as your base. Use tons of water, on the base and the stone, and it's not as much of an...

    I think the flatter ramp because of the GripWalk AFD is pretty questionable in and of itself.

    16s and 18s come with the race something-or-other heel, which is more burlier and metallic, and a lower stack height (17mm vs 24mm).
