Recommendation:

Base Layer: SkiGo LF Graphite

Race Paraffin: SkiGo HF Universal

Fluoro Powder: SkiGo C22 Powder
Topcoat: C22 Block Rotofleeced

Structure: Warm grind skis should run well. Finite V10 and CP17 will be in the mix.

Kick: N/A

 

Test Discussion-

If the precipitation comes in as rain, C22 Powder/Liquid slurry will be a great combination. Check in with Martin to find out how to do this. Alternatively, C22 Liquid would beat out C22 Block with rain coming as well.

CONCLUSIONARY NOTES – BNS will have a table set up and will be testing top coats, kick,  and hand structure at the venue.  Come by to get our latest test results and recommendations.

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. Visit Swix and Toko for their official recommendations. If you have any questions please contact us.
