The Swix T047G is a deep-red anodized jewel of a structure tool. Built by Finite specifically for Swix the T047G stands out above the heard, sporting gear-driven rollers it imparts lovely long lasting and complex patterns into the ski base.
The tool ships in a solid foam-lined plastic case and includes 5 rollers (listed below) which cover typical structure needs throughout the temperature scale. Made in the USA.
Included structure rollers are:
- Broken V Structure, 0.5mm. (T047G-V05)
- Linear Structure, 0.2mm. (T047G-L02)
- Linear Structure, 0.75mm pitch x 0.5mm depth. (T047G-L07505)
- Linear Structure, 1.0mm pitch x 0.5mm depth. (T047G-L1005)
- Linear Structure, 2.0mm pitch x 0.5mm depth. (T047G-L2005)
Most of us don't have the luxury of owning multiple pairs of skis with multiple structure patterns ready to be paired exactly to the current conditions. Stone grinding, while long lasting and more or less permanent (until the next grind), is quite costly and so is not always the best option for frequent structure changes. More suitable is a hand structuring tool. The "roller" style tools we offer are a good choice for adjusting structure to conditions, the structure is easily applied and non-permanent..most structures will disappear the next time you hot wax. For best results apply the structure of the day to the ski base after you wax, scrape and brush the ski.
