BNS Wax Recommendations

As racers, coaches and service technicians, we've worked at every level of the sport from local high school races to Olympics and World Championships.  When we launched BNS, one of the first things we did was start publishing wax reports that included multiple brands.  We figured that the while typical wax reports from each company were useful, most racers want to know what wax is fastest - period - not just what is running best from each brand.

These wax reports are our best effort at providing objective, useful information for racers. We import several wax brands including Holmenkol, SkiGo, Guru, Magnar and Gallium, and we sell Swix, Toko, Rex, Rode and Start, among others. We try our best to test as many waxes as possible, but it is just not possible to test everything, and no test is infallible.  With this in mind, we seek full transparency in every one of our recommendations by discussing how we test, what the results are and what we recommend, so you can trust our work and decide for yourself how valuable our recommendations are.  We hope that these reports will be useful to you and help you make fast skis!

Kick – start with a thin layer of Guru Extreme 39 Hard ironed – cover with hardwax – some to test are Guru Extreme Hallgier or Violet, Rex TK1814, Ski*Go HF Violet, Swix V45

Test Discussion- We tested paraffins and powders this afternoon on course from 10:30 to 12:30pm.  Our best powder was Ski*Go C105 powder – this will be a very safe call for the forecasted conditions tomorrow.  Holmenkol Race Powder Mid and Ski*Go C44/7 also tested well. For paraffin we liked a mix of Ski*Go HFP16 and Ski*Go LF Graphite.  This is a combination that the Ski*Go boys in Sweden have recommended to us for man-made and man-made mixed snow - it was very good today in our testing.
