Weekend Wax Recommendation

Posted by Michael Stearns on Jan 5th 2017

Gear West Weekend Wax Recs:

SISU Ski Festival - Ironwood, Michigan
Friday Night low: -5 F
Saturday High:  0 F......brrrrrrrrrr 


Make sure your bases are hardened off for this race.  It's wicked cold in the UP of Michigan.  

Baselayers:  

Harden off base with a good cold wax.  We recommend Start SG10 or Swix CH4.  After scraping and brushing, polish with a finer Fibertex.  This really helps to polish the base.  More polished and shiny = fast skis in cold snow!  

After initial hardening, use Start LF10, Swix LF3, or Swix LF4 

Final Layer:  Start MF10, Swix HF4 or Rex TK-22 combined with Swix LF3 

KICK:
1. VG35 or Start Base Binder (ironed in!!)
2. VR30
3.VG30
4.VR30 X 4 THIN LAYERS
