Waxing a recreational skier’s skating skis
Thanks to Vauhti’s products waxing skis is easy! Cleaning the glide surfaces first with Vauhti CARE Clean & Glide cleaner ensures that the new wax sticks better to the glide surface and that contaminants do not impair the functionality of the new glide wax.
Then choose a wax according to the outdoor temperature and snow type. From the fluorine-free Vauhti PURE, Pace and 360 collections you can find just the right waxes from cold frosts, right up to wet weathers.
Glide waxing with liquid glide waxes:
- Clean the glide surface with Care Clean & Glide cleaner and let it dry completely.
- Brush the glide surface with a nylon brush until shiny.
- Apply the selected liquid glide wax to the glide surface using the sponge on the bottle.
- Allow the liquid wax to dry sufficiently
- Brush the wax well with a nylon brush
Waxing an active or a competitive skier’s skating skis
We always recommend cleaning the glide surfaces with Vauhti CARE Clean & Glide before applying a new layer of wax. A clean ski will retain the new layer of wax and glide better.
There are many ways to wax skis for active and competitive skiers. PURE and PACE waxes make this as easy as possible without compromising performance. PURE and PACE waxes are optimized to work on a wide range of snow conditions using carefully selected ingredients. Waxing can be done either with liquid waxes or by melting the solid wax into the ski with a waxing iron.
Waxing by melting the solid glide wax:
- Apply the selected wax to the bottom of the ski with a wax iron.
- Allow the wax to cool.
- Scrape off the excess with an acrylic scraper.
- Brush well first with a metal brush, for example a brass brush, and finally with a nylon brush.
