Wilkommen to HWK ski wax! HWK ski wax is a hand crafted World Cup ski wax line, developed in the heart of the Alps in Tirol, Austria. HWK was founded 1989. This incredibly versatile yet specific wax line has been developed through years of research and development with unique partnerships with chemists and the Austrian Ski Team. HWK uses unique crafting methods along with the best and purest materials to create the highest quality waxes available for competition.

This family owned company has beaten the odds and is now known on the World Cup circuit as one of the preeminent wax lines available. In the incredibly difficult waxing conditions at the 2015 Nordic World Championships in Falun Sweden, HWK was the winning wax. On the slopes of Beaver Creek, Colorado for the Alpine World Ski Championships, HWK continued its medal haul with athletes from many nations using HWK to gain podium finishes. HWK was used to win Gold medals at every major World Championship event this past winter. This includes Nordic, Nordic Combined, Alpine, and Snowboard.

The HWK wax line has something for everyone. Whether you are a skier just starting to compete in a local race series, or you are a seasoned veteran that is looking to place in the elite wave at the Birkie. The HWK wax system includes a simple hydrocarbon line, a specific yet broad ranged low fluor and high fluor line up, and a race wax line of pure fluoros that will service the beginning racer to the World Cup wax tech.
