Considerations:

  • 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.
