Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite 

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HF Orange

Fluoro Powder: Ski*Go C22 Powder

Topcoat: Ski*Go C22 block mixed with Ski*Go C22 liquid

Structure: C3.3 and C4.2 will run well, Holmenkol Cross structure tool can be tested as well as Finite V05.

Kick: Zeros could work well tomorrow, for klister some options to try are Ski*Go HF Yellow/Violet mix, Guru Red, Rode Special Rossa mixed with uni klisters.


Discussion- Testing today did not reveal anything useful – the weather will change overnight.  Our recommendations above are based on the forecast and what we know about the venue.  C22 powder and topcoats were running well in the race yesterday and will be a very safe bet for tomorrow.  Also, we are confident in Ski*Go HF Orange – it is a very safe bet for the conditions tomorrow.  Hand structure will be a must for skis without adequate structure – we have had very good luck with the Holmenkol Cross Structure tool with both rollers and Finite tools. The finite V05 was running well in the classic race yesterday.  Kick will be a moving target depending on how the weather unfolds this evening – most likely klister will be needed.    


CONCLUSIONARY NOTES – Come visit Roger and David in the BNS mobile trailer parked by the maintenance garage.  We have a complete stock of wax and tools for purchase.  We are testing daily and will be posting results at the trailer.  To receive our latest results in a text, send a text message to Roger at 2077491945 to get on the list.


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.
