Care and maintenance
Our sleds are very easy to
maintain thanks to a proven design and careful choice of materials.
Nevertheless, please note
some points if you want your sled to have a long life:
- - protect sleds from heat,
e.g. in a car when the sun is shining. The high temperatures could cause
plastic components to warp.
- - racing plastics must be waxed
before each ride to achieve good anti-friction properties. Ideally you should
apply a coat of wax during the summer break, then remove it and brush well
before next use.
- -it is best to use waxes
from the world of cross-country skiing.
- - check screw connections,
rivets and leashes before every ride and, if necessary, replace.
- - soiling and road salt can
be cleaned off with a high-pressure hose - at low pressure or from a distance.
Worn out tug leashes/starter
cords etc. must be renewed. On the Hornet XC/URS, European Open/XL and Odyss MD
and Grand Odyss, you can replace the leashes yourself with spare parts from our
range. With the Flexmax (no longer in the range), if necessary the leash would
have to be replaced in our workshop.
