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.

UAF and Goldstream Sports Classic Trail wax recommendation.

Temperature: -7f
Humidity:

Snow Type:
old

  • Kick Wax
    • Toko 2 layers of X-Cold or 5 layers of Rode Special Green
  • Glide Wax
    • Toko LF Blue with X-Cold power or Swix CH 4 With LF3 Cold Power
  • Notes 
    • For glide with relatively new snow snow in cold temperatures the snow is very sharp and dry. To counter this the wax needs to be hardened  with cold power.
    • The tracks are getting skied in and the glide will improve.

    • If the track is glazing you may need to bump the wax up one step warmer. for Toko that would be Blue.
    • I would continue to use the cold powers for glide wax additive.
