There are two main types of cross-country skiing. The main feature of Classic cross-country skis is the right balance between grip and glide. To prevent backward gliding without braking, the ski base is fitted with one of the following seal systems: fish scales, micropore, seal skin or wax. To ensure the smoothest possible movement, skating skis have a completely smooth base that should be waked regularly. Different cross-country boots are used with skis depending on the technique.
