Wax Recommendations

Toko –

Glidewax: Apply LF Blue, scrape and brush, then apply HF Blue, sprinkle on X-cold Powder, iron in together, scrape and brush. Finish by crayoning JetStream Blue, iron hot (320F) with a layer of fiberlene under the iron, traveling slowly (60 seconds) tip to tail. Brush with a dedicated nylon polishing brush and polish with a thermopad.

Gripwax: Roughen base with 150 grit sandpaper, iron in Nordic Base Wax Green, cork smooth, let cool. Then apply 3-5 layers of Nordic GripWax X-Cold depending on race distance, corking between layers.

Structure: A fine linear grind with no additional structure will best suit these conditions.

 

Fast Wax – Wax as cold as you can go and use a fluorinated wax. Think about firm ski’s with a universal grind pattern.

Recommendation 1 – Base Layer = Base Prep/Support Layer = HSLF0
Recommendation 2 – Base Layer = Base Prep Fluoro/Support Layer = HSLF0/Race Layer = HSLF0/Top Coat = Race Pro Artic

ZumWax – Start with Black Lightening Graphite as a base wax. Scrape and brush with fine steel brush to clean up structure. Then use our Purple Endurance wax as it is our hardest wax. Scrape and brush. Glide layer should be HF Blue and Topcoat with HF Uni-Block. Layer 1 ironed, layer 2 roto corked in. Recommend a zero or uni-cold grind. Stay tuned for updates

 

Solda – 

Glide:
Base: Solda HC28 scraped and brushed. Then apply a layer of Solda S30. Scrape it while it is still warm. Brush with horse hair.
Paraffin: Apply Solda F15 Green. Scrape and brush.
Top Powder: Apply a layer of Solda S30 cold powder. Scrape it while still warm. Let it cool and brush with horse hair. Polish with fine nylon brush.
Note: if it looks to be warmer than 10ºF at the start make the finish coat Solda S20.

Gripwax:
Start with ironing in your favorite base binder. A good layer of binder will help the kick wax last longer and give better kick. For a race this long don’t try to go too thin.
Then apply several layers of Start Terva Black.
