BNS Wax Recommendation

Vasaloppet USA
Date 2/13/16

Event Information-

The Mora Vasaloppet has been a staple in Midwest ski marathons for many years now. This year, due to warm weather, the course will consist of laps compared to the normal point to point format. The race will start and finish downtown, while racers will compete on the trails of the Vasaloppet Nordic Ski Center.

Race Wax Service-

Our race wax service will be run out of our new store in Bloomington on 90th and Penn. Skis can be dropped off at our store and picked up the evening before the race event.  Call our shop at 952 303 5683 for more details.

Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HF Green. Possibly Mix in Ski*Go P16 for added durability

Fluoro Powder: Ski*G0 C110 or Holmenkol Speedpowder Cold
Topcoat: Ski*Go C110 Block or Holmenkol Speed Block Cold

Structure: Our S1.3 or S0.3 Will be competative

Kick: Waxes to try: Guru Green or Ski*Go XC Green could be good covers over the Start Oslo Green.


Test Discussion- We will not be testing on site. This is a forecast based recommendation. However, with the addition of man-made snow to the course, the addition of Ski*Go P16 could be a great addition. Also, the Start Oslo Green has been testing great on man made snow.


note: BNS imports Holmenkol and SkiGo waxes, and also sells waxes from Swix, Toko, Rode, Solda, Rex, Guru, Innovax, Magnar and others. We search for the fastest waxes for our customers and our testing is professional, objective and transparent. We make our best effort to test what we think is the best from each brand.  However, given that we are testing more options from Holmenkol and SkiGo, there is a bias toward those brands.  With this full disclosure, you can assess the legitimacy of our testing yourself. Visit Swix and Toko for their official recommendations. If you have any questions please contact us.
