Test Discussion

Forecast based recommendation. With the projected forecast, the wax recommendation is an easy call based on past race success on this exact wax job. SkiGo HF Yellow with C22 Powder, topped with the C22 liquid will be an excellent option with this forecast and hard to beat. Gallium Liquid could
be a bit faster in these conditions, but the SkiGo C22 liquid is probably more widely used by racers. SkiGo CM110 could also be another interesting topcoat if someone wanted to test. Ski wise, choose a standard “yellow”/Wet conditions grind and flex.

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.
