Features
  1. All snow types, especially in old and man-made snow from cold to humid conditions.
  2. Excellent block for all kinds of general use, whatever the conditions or distances.

  5. Suitable as a topper for coating liquid glides, base waxes, fluorine waxes and powders.
  6. A reasonable alternative for junior competitive skiers.
  7. Affordable – one container can be used to prepare up to 100 pairs of skis.
  8. Cold corking is the quickest way to excellent glide after a busy working day.

Application Methods

Safety Warning!

In the application process of some ski wax products, you and others can ba exposed to dangerous dust, fumes or residues. With the correct safety protolcols in place, these risks can be mitiagted and waxing can be very safe.

Safe Waxing protolcol:

  1. Always wax in a well-ventilated area. Outside is best. If you have to wax inside make sure there is some sort of air exchanger in place. Range hoods are best. Fans are better than nothing. Be sure to point out any lack of air exchanging equipment to the staff of any waxing facility or the race organizers.
  2. Whenever using any kind of heat in the waxing process (irons, heat guns, torches) always wear a respirator. Respirators that cover your eyes are best and check for a fluorocarbon rating on your respirator. Remember, the most dangerous fumes are not from powders but resins in grip wax and klisters. Wear a mask even when you are using non-fluorinated waxes since fumes from burnt paraffins are not OK to inhale. Respirators are required in the wax room.
  3. When creating any dust in the waxing process (brushing, scraping) always wear a respirator and gloves. Compounds in blocks, liquids, powders, klisters, and other hardwaxes can be absorbed through the skin. Wax companies keep their wax recipes secret so we have no idea what chemical compounds are present in most waxes nor their effects on the body. Always wear gloves while waxing to reduce your risk to negligible levels.
  4. People who are not waxing are not allowed in the wax room.
  5. Be sure to safely dispose of wax shavings and dust. Contained in a plastic garbage bag is adequate.

With the proper level of adult responsibility, any wax can be used perfectly safely and with negligible harm to the environment. Follow the correct safety protocols whenever you enter a wax room and be prepared with the right safety equipment. Remember to enjoy your fast skis to the max!

    How to Apply Glide Pucks

    Instructional video in Swedish, but it gives you the idea. English instrctions below:

    Pucks are a fantastic way to get the highest level of glide. Pucks are typically one of the fastest pure fluoros. Unfortunately they only remain on the ski base for 5km or so. Past 5km they may not be reliably durable. Pucks are very cost-effective because of how efficiently the product is used.
    1. Begin by applying a base paraffin that suits the day's snow conditions. Scrape and brush.
    2. Gently rub a layer of the puck to cover the entire glide zone.
    3. Use a hand cork or roto cork to vigorously rub-down the entire glide zone. The goal is to create as much heat friction as possible. After a minute or so of energetic corking, you can reach temperatures of up to 130C!
    4. Instead of corking, you can iron in the puck. Make sure to keep a layer of either glide tape or Fiberlene between the iron and the base. This is to avoid burning the base since the iron will be set to 180C. Another method is to use a wool or fleece applicator instead of a cork to achieve heat friction.
    5. Using a horsehair hand brush or roto brush, vigorously brush away the excess left-over wax. 8-10 passes with a hand brush should be enough or a few passes with the roto-brush.
    6. To polish, use a nylon hand brush or nylon roto-brush. 10-15 passes with a hand brush or roto brush should be plenty. Your ski base should now be very shiny.
    7. Consider finishing your ski by adding structure with a rill tool if there is a lot of moisture in the snow, or if it is very cold or dry, finish the ski with some Ski*Go pink paper.
