Base Layer: SkiGo LF Graphite

Fluoro Powder: SkiGo C22 Powder/Liquid Slurry Application

Topcoat: C22 Liquid. Light application, brush out well. Gallium Gigaspeed would also be a great choice.

Structure: Warm grind/stiff ski should run well. Aggressive linear hand structure on the tail of the ski will help increase speed. For the classic race, the Finite 2 mm linear structure will run well. For the Gold Rush, a V10 + 2 mm linear from the binding back

Kick: Guru Extreme 39 + Guru Red Klister Underfoot



Test Discussion-

The recommendation is based on forecast. These waxes all win testing in similar/identical conditions. Stop by the table with any questions for us!


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.
