Forecast Based Recommendation
We recommend the following:
Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite
Race Paraffin: Holmenkol Matrix Red HF
Fluoro Powder: Holmenkol Mid08
Kick: Ski*Go HF Blue
Structure: Finite L04
Testing Discussion – The snow will be mostly old, dry, natural snow – grainy, and probably running on the warm side for glide wax. For kick, the old Toko Dark Red used to work really well if you don’t have any Ski*Go waxes. It might be borderline klister conditions, and you might want to consider a violet klister (covered, if new snow present). If the conditions are like last Saturday, fluoro powder will make a big difference, due to the snow crystals being melted by the sun (only if a clear sunny day).
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.
