RaceWax Wax Wizard
The wizard picks the optimum wax for the conditions selected. Select an entry for each of the following:
Wet or Dry Snow? Select Wet if you can make a snowball.
New or Old Snow? Select New if there is fresh fallen or man-made snow.
Temperature? Wax for the slowest section of the race course; if exposed to strong/cold wind or shade, wax colder. If temperatures are expected to change through the day, select the coldest.
- All temperatures are air temperature, not snow temperature.
- Use the hot-scrape method to completely clean the base of old wax before you add new wax.
- Racewax fluoro waxes don't drip on; rub on thick, iron, scrape, brush, polish. Read about wax application.
- Brushing and base structure are critical elements of tuning.
