NOTE: When you use kick wax in the tin always apply in thin layers (4-6). Sooner several thin layers than one thick layer! Thin layers will apply more easily and have better durability and grip. The base wax should be warmed into a roughened kick zone. For more information refer to www.ski-go.com about kick zone preparation. With dirty snow absolutely, always use LF & HF kickwaxes! Ski*go fluoronated kickwaxes (LF & HF) are dirt repelling and improve the glide.
