Wax Easy -Ski Fast
Keep waxing simple at first.
For good grip on classic skis use the Swix Basic Grip Wax combo one wax for warm snow one for medium and another for cold.
Or try Toko Easy Wax. One for below zero the other for above zero temperatures. Crayon the grip wax onto the grip zone (from your heel to approx. 50cm forward) of your skis and buff in with a cork. Apply 2-3 thin layers.
For good glide use Toko Express Wax rub-on glide wax. Classic skiers can simply wipe this paste onto the tips and tails and buff. If you’re skating treat the entire base with this fast and easy glider.
Fluorocarbon compounds are very slippery, just like the teflon coating on frying pans. The high surface tension of fluorocarbon repels water, resists the abrasion and adhesion of dirt, making it exceptional in humid or old, dirty snow. By mixing fluoros with conventional waxes the glide temperature range can be extended and lowered for our winters. A little goes a long way.
Swix has blended high concentrations of fluorocarbon with hydrocarbon waxes for an easy to apply exceptionally fast wax. Use it alone or as a base wax for Cera F. HF7 -2 to -8°C, HF8 +1 to -4°C, Combi Pack 2HF Waxes

One sticky wax for warm snow, one not-so-sticky wax for cold with a cork. It's that simple.
Before you slip those sticky klister covered skis into your clean ski bag drip some glide wax onto the klister, smooth it on with your iron, cool then either pack it up or scrape the waxy/klister mix off to restore your clean base. Our bulk glide wax is an ideal cleaner or travel wax.
80Km’s without rewaxing for grip
Build a klister binder base. Apply a thin layer of KR20 klister to a short grip zone and iron in. Freeze the klister and apply a layer of VR40. Cork smooth. Lightly heat with an iron. Re-freeze, then apply VR40 to frozen wax, cork then melt. Repeat for a total of three layers. Re-freeze and apply the wax of the day. It will last! --Saul
