XC (Non-Fluoro) Glide Waxes

These regular glide waxes are an excellent value for all conditions for recreational, training and racing skiers. When humidity conditions are low these waxes can perform better than many fluoronated waxes. These waxes can be used as the under-layer to the low, high and pure fluoronated waxes and the cold powders to help improve durability.
Application:
Allow waxing iron to warm to temperature indicated on box. Drip wax onto the ski base in small dots evenly from tip to tail. Warm wax dots with the iron so that the wax flows across the ski. The wax should remain molten for a short period of time. Let the skis cool (at least 10 minutes). Now scrape the excess wax from the base and follow by brushing with a nylon brush. For Violet and Green you may brush with a brass brush because they are so hard.

Yellow/C242 XC, 60g or 200g


For all snow types, +20°..-1°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 125°C.
This is one of the waxes that has made Ski*go world famous. Yellow/C242 handles snow that is rapidly aging and new snow at the same time. An excellent choice when new snow is falling onto an aged, damp track at or just below freezing.
The glide from this wax is hard to beat! A must for every wax box. 60g & 200g.
Previously C242.

Orange XC, 60g


New to older snow types, +1°..-5°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 125°C.
With fresh snow, new snow, and snow with good snowflake structure Orange XC is your choice just below freezing. 60g & 200g.
Previously Yellow.

Red XC, 60g


For granular and artifical snow types, +1°..-5°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 145°C.
When the snow has been heavily tilled or is very aged Red XC will provide you durability and glide. 60g & 200g.
Previously Violet.

Violet/Ultima XC, 60g


For older and agressive/abrasive snow types, -1°..-12°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 130°C.
Violet XC is an excellent choice when preparing skis ahead of time for enjoyment or training. Ideal with older and more aggressive snow, Violet XC handles other snow types so well that it is the "default" training wax for many teams. 60g & 200g.
Previously Ultima.

Blue XC, 60g


For new snow, -3°..-10°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 130°C.
An excellent choice for recreation skiing and training at the start of the season when there is a good base of new snow. Racers will appreciate Blue XC when conditions turn dry to very dry after a fresh snowfall. 60g & 200g.
Previously Newsnow.

Green XC, 60g

Green XC
For all snow types, -7°..-20°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 145°C. For all snow types including man-made (artificial snow). Used often in cold and very dry conditions (RH <40%). 60g & 200g.
Previously Blue.

Graphite XC, 60g


For all snow types, for all temperatures, humidity 0..100%, iron 145°C.
Use as the under-layer for C380 and C380-A. Use in conditions when the ski base needs to be hardened and/or when static build-up needs to be reduced. 60g & 200g.

Soft High Penetration Base Wax

   
For all snow types, +2°..-15°C, humidity 0..100%, iron 125°C.
This high penetration base wax is designed work deep into the ski base. This makes the ski bases highly saturated in ski wax. A deep penetrating base wax is essential to the durability and effectiveness of all other waxes, particularly the colder waxes. The base wax provides the binding between ski base and glide wax. The better the binding the longer the glide wax will last (durability). A durable glide wax means a more consistent and effective glide. This basewax is also an excellect cleaning wax because its deep penetration will float out other waxes and dirt from the ski base. Ideal as a storage wax. Works with glides waxes of all brands. 120g & 1000g.

Low Fluoro Glide Waxes

These low fluoro glide waxes provide excellent performance for all types of snow. These wax provide optimal speed when humidity conditions are 50..75%. These waxes can be used as the under-layer to the high and pure fluoronated waxes and the cold powders to help improve durability. For use by racing, training and fitness skiers.
Fluoro, or fluoronated waxes provide more speed in normal to high humidity conditions. The fluoro is more water repelling than regular waxes. Naturally this can benefit skiers doing races and loppets. Fluoro can also benefit beginners learning to skate ski because it allows them to focus on learning the technique rather than "muscling" their way through when the damp snow is slowing the skis.
Application:
Allow waxing iron to warm to temperature indicated on box. Drip wax onto the ski base in small dots evenly from tip to tail. Warm wax dots with the iron so that the wax flows across the ski. The wax should remain molten for a short period of time. Let the skis cool (at least 10 minutes). Now scrape the excess wax from the base and follow by brushing with a nylon brush. For Violet and Green you may brush with a brass brush because they are so hard.
Hints:
In the -5°..-8°C range blend Orange and Green together 1:1 when the snow is not abrasive. For longer races/loppets use the matching regular glide as an underlayer for increased durability. In dry conditions racers may find the LF glide waxes having better performance than HF waxes (testing always proves).


Yellow/C242 LF


For all snow types, +20°..-1°C, humidity 50..75%, iron 125°C.
This is world famous Yellow/C242 with a low fluoronation. Yellow/C242 handles snow that is rapidly aging and new snow at the same time. An excellent choice when new snow is falling onto an aged, damp track at or just below freezing.
The glide from this wax is hard to beat! A must for every wax box. 60g & 200g.
Previously C242 LF.

Orange LF


New to older snow types. +1°..-5°C, humidity 50..75%, iron 125°C.

High Fluoro Glide Waxes

These high fluoro glide waxes provide high performance for all types of snow. These wax provide optimal speed when humidity conditions are >65%. These waxes can be used as the under-layer to the high and pure fluoronated waxes and the cold powders to help improve durability. For use in races and time trials.
Fluoro, or fluoronated waxes provide more speed in normal to high humidity conditions. The fluoro is more water repelling than regular waxes. Naturally this can benefit skiers doing races and loppets. Fluoro can also benefit beginners learning to skate ski because it allows them to focus on learning the technique rather than "muscling" their way through when the damp snow is slowing the skis.
Application:
Allow waxing iron to warm to temperature indicated on box. Drip wax onto the ski base in small dots evenly from tip to tail. Warm wax dots with the iron so that the wax flows across the ski. The wax should remain molten for a short period of time. Let the skis cool (at least 10 minutes). Now scrape the excess wax from the base and follow by brushing with a horsehair or nylon brush. For Violet and Green you may lightly brush with a brass brush because they are so hard, but do the finishing polish with a nylon brush.
Hints:
In the -5°..-8°C range blend Orange and Green together 1:1 when the snow is not abrasive. For longer races/loppets use the matching regular glide as an underlayer for increased durability. Double wax the HF layer if it is the top layer to ensure maximum coverage for top speed and acceleration.

Yellow/C242 HF


For all snow types, +20°..-1°C, humidity 65..100%, iron 125°C.

A great choice with new snow and high humidity (>65%). Regularly used in combination with other Ski*go waxes. Cold winters see Green HF as the underlayer to Ski*go C380 and Ski*go C105 Fluid. With older snow at the mid-range temperatures Green XC mixed with Orange HF provides impressive results. 50g & 200g.
Previously Blue HF.

Pure Fluoro Glide Waxes

These are high performance glide waxes for racing and for individuals who want the fastest glide possible. Ski*go pure fluoro ski waxes are well known and used with the World Cup races. C44 is the best known and used of these Ski*go waxes.
Ski*go recommends using the Ski*go High Fluoro Glide waxes as the under-layer before applying these waxes.
The Ski*go Fluid glides are the latest technological advancement in ski wax glide. These are easy to apply and provide very swift results! Ski*go research and development continues to increase the speed of your skis!
The fluid pure fluoro waxes increase the toughness of the base surface so that you maintain your glide in agressive & abrasive snow conditions.
Application:
For more specific application details click here. Always allow the waxing iron to warm to the temperature indicated on bottle. Ensure the waxing iron is clean of any/all residue!
Hints:
Always apply a HF underlayer for maximum durability of the top pure fluoro layer and best speed. Double wax the top layer to ensure maximum coverage for top speed and acceleration. Even at cold temperatures the relative humidity can be very high which makes the conditions excellent for pure fluorocarbon waxes such as C110 and C105.

For applying fluoros you can view our if you haven't applied fluoros before.

Powders

Ski*go powders are recommended to be ironed over an underlayer of Ski*go HF glide (matching the conditions) for best durability. Can be roto-corked or hand corked for shorter distances. Ensure your iron is at the correct temperature setting for best adhesion to the underlayer.
Ski*go C44 is one of the oldest and most successful top-coats in the skiing world. C44 is closely followed by C22 for its success. Several generations of skiers now have won races over the past quarter century with C44 and C22. The younger C105 has been proving itself repeatedly at the International, National and local races.
Always follow correct safety protocol when applying -- good ventlation of the workspace is the first step and then a P100 filter mask.

C22 Powder


All snow types, +20°..0°C, humidity 60..100%, iron 190°C.
Use C22 for extra speed on wet & dirty snow. C22 is very resistant to dirt and this is often noticed when tested against other brands after several kilometers. C22 performs its best when the underlayer is Ski*go Yellow/C242 HF. Very often the winning wax at national championship races. 30g.

C44/7 Powder


Grainy snow, +1°..-14°C, humidity 60..100%, iron 145°C.
C44/7 is an advancement of the well-known C44 formula. With a larger range with the ability to handle snow that is newer/finer than C44 traditionally handles. 30g.

C44 Powder


All snow types except new snow, +1°..-8°C, humidity 60..100%, iron 145°C.
C44 is maybe the best and most used racing powder on transformed (older/aged) snow and artificial snow with large crystals. 30g.

C105 Powder


New and fine crystal snow types, +1°..-15°C, humidity 60..100%, iron 140°C.
When the snow is new or has fine crystal definition use C105. 30g.

C110 Powder


All snow types, -10°..-20°C, humidity 60..100%, iron 145°C.
Introduced for the 2011/12 season to fit between C105 and C380. 30g. Use when the snow is cold or abrasive with the relative humidity normal and higher.

CM10

The newest addition and advancement from Skigo for fast skis. Available starting November 2010 for the 2010/11 ski season.

Skigo CM10 ski wax

Granular/old snow, +20°..-2°C, humidity 40..100 %
For grainular/old snow, and warm to very warm temperatures. First prepare the ski base with Skigo LF Graphite and then Skigo HF Yellow (occationally HF Orange).
Rub on a thin even layer over the glide zone(s). Then cork with a hand or roto natural cork for distances up to 5km; over 5km warm into the ski base with a clean waxing iron at 160°C. After resting for 10-15 minutes, brush carefully/lightly with a horsehair brush. Do not polish with a nylon or fine metal brush after.

Solids

Ski*go Solids can be applied by hand cork, roto-cork or ironed when a thick enough layer is applied. Always use the appropraite Ski*go HF glide wax as an underlayer so that the Solid can adhere correctly. Ski*go Solids can be used as the final top-coat over Ski*go Powders and Fluids.

C22 Solid


All snow types, +20°..-2°C, humidity 60..100%
Hand cork or roto-cork. Fluoroblocks give extreme glide and are typically used for shorter distances and races. 20g.

C44/7 Solid


All snow types except new snow, +3°..-9°C, humidity 60..100%.
Hand cork or roto-cork. With older and coarse snow just below freezing this Solid block is well-known for adding measureable zip to your skis. 20g.

C105 Solid


New and fine crystal snow types, +1°..-20°C, humidity 70..100%.
Hand cork or roto-cork. Based on the C105 powder. Adds a significant boost in new snow conditions even with normal humidity. Sometimes used as a top-coat in icy conditions just below freezing. 20g.

C110 Solid


All snow types, -10°..-20°C, humidity 70..100%.
Hand cork or roto-cork. Based on the C110 powder. Use over Skigo Green HF, C380, C75 or P16. 20g.

Fluids

Ski*go fluids exhibit the same durability as the Ski*go powders when applied by roto-cork. The fluids create a harder surface that matches to snow conditions that harder. "Harder" conditions can include new snow that is drier, coarse snow and icy snow just above freezing but not yet getting soft. You can top the fluids with the Ski*go Solid blocks as suggested in the Ski*go Racing Wax Table.

C22 Fluid


All snow types, +20°..-2°C, humidity 60..100%.

Fine crystal and older snow types, -4°..-15°C, humidity 70..100%.
Hand cork or roto-cork. 30ml.

Extreme Cold & Racing Powders

These 3 products give extra high speed glide when it is cold and difficult to wax. These are special synthetic powders for cold and extremely cold conditions. When regular glide waxes cannot produce enough water film you are left skiing entirely with dry friction (you will hear the snow squeaking under the skis as you move). These tough waxes resist frictional wear while improving glide. Can be used for all snow types including new snow, dry snow, artifical snow and wet "drift-snow". Ironed into the ski base like regular wax after being sprinkled across the base. We recommend that regular Ski*go Graphite be used as an under-layer in very-dry to dry conditions and Ski*go Graphite LF in regular humidity. When conditions are very cold (below -17°C) use Ski*go Green LF in normal humidity and Ski*go Green HF in high humidity as the underlayer. Do not be fooled into thinking that the humidity is low only because it is very cold out! Use for racing, training and loppets where durability is key. At extreme cold (below -25°C) these waxes continue to perform superbly.
Because of the hardness of these waxes they are ground into powder at the factory to make application easier. While in powder form both C380 and C75 are non-fluoro.

C380


For cold and/or dry and/or abrasive snow, -7°..-25°C, humidity 0..60%, iron 150°C.
60g.
This non-fluoro glide is rarely beaten when it is very cold! When facing cold training and racing days C380 will help you get glide. C380 shows great versatility when combined with other Ski*go waxes. Regularly used over Ski*go LF & HF Green. To improve durability when used in longer races and loppet we suggest that you do a base preparation with Ski*go Soft before adding the Green or Graphite underlayers.

C75


For old/aged snow, -4°..-25°C, humidity 40..70%, iron 150°C.
Used when the humidity is normal to high in older snow. 60g.

P16


For artificial and agressive/abrasive snow, -4°..-25°C, humidity 65..100%, iron 155°C.
At higher humidities in abrasive snow conditions P16 will provide the glide you need while protecting the ski base. This will be noticed significantly when the sun is beaming onto the track. 60g.
