Glide Wax Additives
$16.00 - $92.00
These convenient solids are great for rubbing onto your skis just before the start. You rub the solid onto your ski, cork in, then brush. It is quick and easy to use - and you don't have to worry about spills. This 5 gram size is good for waxing 5-8 pairs of skis. (We also have the 22 gram size, good for 30-50 pair of skis.) SOLDA PowerJet 1 (21 to 34F) PowerJet 1, formerly Solid Fluor, is a solid version of SOLDA Fluor 100. It is nearly 100% fluorocarbon. Very fast in warmer conditions in both old and new snow with high humidity. SOLDA PowerJet 2 (14 to 21F) PowerJet 2 is the colder companion to PowerJet 1. This solid fluoro shares many of the same performance characteristics of HP05. Easy to apply, it can be ironed or corked in. If the race morning temperature is very cold, but you expect it to warm up, we recommend corking in a layer of PowerJet 2 over a warmer wax to get you through those first few cold kilometers. SOLDA PowerJet 3 (-4 to 19F) PowerJet 3 (formerly known as Speed Cold) is a non-fluorocarbon synthetic compound which is faster than fluoros in cold, dry snow. A perfect last-minute solution when you get to a race site and realize that you have waxed too warm. SOLDA PowerJet 4 Carbon Speed Enhancer. Rub onto dry, base-prepped skis then cork and brush. Use as top layer or as an under layer for fluorocarbon. Can be used in combinations with SOLDA HPO5 or Fluor in spray or powder. PowerJet Carbon 4 has a wide range of use: 9 to 25 F (-13 to -4C), Humidity: 30% - 100%, making it an ideal option in almost all snow and humidity conditions. PowerJet 5 Very Warm. Solid Fluor for very warm, wet, spring snow conditions. Buy a 3-pack of 1, 3 and 4 and save a few bucks.
Solda S20 Antistatic Powder works great in dry conditions. S20 is most often used as a top coat in cold, windblown natural snow, or artificial snow in dry, cold conditions. S20 over a base of Solda HC28 runs very well when the snow is down between 15 and -4F. S20 has often been a winner at Boulder Mountain Tour in cold, windblown snow. In a recent World Cup Giant Slalom the Italian women's team had very fast skis with a base of Solda S20 and top coat of Solda HP04. 40g
Solda S30 Powder works as a base hardener. It is a synthetic hydrocarbon powder that has a number of uses. Primarily it is used in very cold, dry conditions. At temperatures near 0F the S30 is a good top coat over Solda F15 Green. S30 is also used as a base wax in cold, older snow. When snow temperatures are below 26F S30 often enhances glide and durability when mixed with the appropritate wax for the temperature. In this case apply the S30 with an iron set at 270F. Scrape the wax while it is still warm and do not brush. Then apply wax of the day over that and iron it together. Scrape and brush. Alpine racers often treat the base near the steel edge with S30 to harden the base against abrasive, artificial snow. 40g
- Swix's pure white hydrocarbon powder for very cold conditions. - Can be used alone or as a base for other waxes during abrasive conditions. - Easier to apply and scrape than other cold conditions waxes. - Ideal for 12ºC to -32ºC (12ºF to -26ºF). - Recommended iron temperature of 150-155ºC. - 30g container.
Excellent hardener for dirty snow. - Designed for use in very low temperatures, low humidity, and abrasive snow. - Applied next to the edges, it also preserves the base. - Apply hot, scrape when skis are still warm, then brush. - Sold in a 30g container. Recommended for: 10-50% Humidity -15°C to -30°C Snow Temperature -12°C to -43°C Air Temperature
Solda S32 Powder works as a base hardener and anti-static all in one. It is a combination of S20 and S30. It is primarily for snow that is even colder than -5F. It has also run well on cold, artificial snow. 35g
Why an HPO5 and S-30 Mix? HPO5 was the top layer for the Italian winners and a number of other top performers at the 2005 American Birkie. HPO5 is a fluorocarbon wax (available in powder or spray form) that adapts extremely well to changing conditions, like from cold to warmer snow, cold humid snow or a mix of dry and moist snow. It's fast, repels dirt and remains fast the entire race. SOLDA S-30 is a great synthetic wax (base hardener) for very cold snow and is often used as a base for HPO5 when the overnight temperature is very low, (but is expected to warm up by race time and/or the snow's humidity or water content will increase). The conclusion: The two waxes always compliment each other and they consistently work well together. When your next race involves cold and medium cold snow and medium to low humidity (amongst the trickiest conditions to wax for), consider SOLDA HPO5 and S-30 Mix. Your great glide will be the envy of all! Use the 50/50 mix for very cold snow that's warming up. -11 to +14°F (-25 to -10C); Humidity 25 to 80% Use the 70/30 (70 HP05, 30 S-30) for cold snow that's warming up or cold humid snow. -4 to +21F (-20 to -6C); Humidity 35 to 90%
This small package of potential speed is used as a rub-on top coat when it seems that the wax is not running well. It can enrich the fluoro content of low fluor waxes such as Solda F15 waxes. It is the UF7 (universal) of the pure fluor waxes. Terrific for coaches or parents on a budget. It is simple and runs in a wide temperature range. 22g
