Liquid Glide wax Application

Liquid Glide Wax Application

Most liquid glide waxes are very simple and quick to apply. They are a fantastic way to get your skis primed without an entire wax box full of tools. In the waxing world, liquid glide waxes are seeing the most research and development. Season after season, new and improved liquid waxes are becoming available. With the R&D focus and the advent of fluor-free waxing rules, liquid waxes have seriously broken out as one of the best ways to make fast fluor-free skis. This is a huge bonus since these liquid waxes can be applied in the parking lot without advanced waxing knowledge or tools.

1) If you are skiing more than 15km, begin by applying a base melt wax that suits the day's snow conditions. Scrape and brush. Alternatively, you can apply a liquid base wax.

2) Using the bottle's dabber, apply a good coat of the liquid wax over the entire glide zone.

3) Set the ski aside until the liquid is visibly dry. It can take several minutes for the solvents to evaporate.

4) Once the liquid is dry, it's time to polish! Use a nylon hand brush or nylon roto brush. 10-15 passes with a hand brush or several passes with a roto brush should be plenty. Your ski base should now be very shiny. You can skip the polishing step if you can tolerate slower skis for the first 2-3km of your outing.

5) Consider finishing your ski by adding structure with a rill tool if there's a lot of moisture in the snow, or if it is very cold or dry, finish the ski with pink paper.
