Best Ski and Snowboard Wax 2017
Flourocarbons = speed. Swix’s Universal F4 Fluoro Wax paste was designed for easy application and excellent speed. Especially useful in corn snow or spring conditions, but a single application could easily last your 2 or more days in cooler temps.
Perfect for mid-winter conditions up to around 35-degrees! Purl’s all-temp wax block comes in a one-pound bar. It may seem more difficult to scrape this wax, but it’s extremely durable, lasting as many as 5 days under the optimal conditions. Holds up well down as low as 5-degrees.
When a hot wax iron job is out of the question, Zardoz NOTWax is an excellent alternative. This pure liquid teflon works great in spring snow and wet snow conditions. Its easy application makes it great for the snowboarder that’s constantly on the go or needs to wax up their board quick.
When quick application matters, Skiboards.com’s High Velocity is a great resource. The small container is about 50mL, which makes it great for taking it where you need it. Goes on fast, and lets you ride fast. An all-temperature wax, but seems to work even better under cooler conditions.
A funny name, this rounds out our best ski and snowboard waxes quite well. Choad Cheese is an all-temp wax, and you’ll get maximum slip for both cold conditions and spring riding. This iron-on wax is locally grown in Portland, Oregon where they know lots about wet snow.
