Wax Recommendation Guide

We will be doing regular wax recommendations either daily or as the weather changes. We will always have a Toko recommendation as it is the simplest performance wax system. We will also include another of our favorite waxes for the conditions. We will also be doing more extensive race wax recommendations prior to races and will attempt to update the kick was recommendation for classic races.
