The Finnish leader in low-friction snow gliding has infiltrated Skimo Co and we couldn’t be happier. Once you get a taste of Start wax, there’s no going back. Addictingly fast, long-lasting, and Finnish. With a broad assortment of waxes to choose from, there is no reason your skis and skins shouldn’t be properly waxed before every tour and race. Waxing skins is a secret trick that is guaranteed to boost your ego on the skin track. Seems sensible that waxing your skins should be as big of a priority as waxing your skis, since the vast majority of a tour is spent on climbing skins. Use heat to melt the wax into your skins, just like your ski bases. Use the lowest heat and move fast so you don’t melt the fibers.
While you don’t want to use Fluoro waxes on your skis (since it can interfere with skin glue), go nuts on your skins! Medium Fluoro (MF#) contains 10% fluorocarbons and is better for snow with higher moisture content in spring or wetter winter climates. SG waxes are a formula of hydrocarbon (non-fluoro) glide waxes with individual temperature ranges to help you cover any and all conditions. RG waxes are sold in 60g blocks and are a non-fluoro race formula that does well on the ski base or skin plush.
