Fluoro Powder: Probably not necessary but if you must! Holmenkol Speed Powder MID or Ski*Go C105 powder should do the job.
Topcoat: Holmenkol Speed block MID or Ski*Go C105 block

Structure: Testing Recommended: A fine linear structure, brushed out with horsehair brush should free up the ski in these conditions.




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.
