This isn't just relating to START waxes, it seems every wax maker is going more and more to liquid waxes. Problem is they all contain some sort of solvent whether it's alcohol or something else that ends up with the wax labelled as flammable. This is a huge problem for anyone who intends to fly to a ski race. Although the Birkie exhibition is well stocked with many waxes, that isn't always the case. Also, it means that a skier now has to potentially buy a bunch of rather expensive wax for just one race and then leave almost full bottles behind. I still remember the wax room in Norway the day after the Birkebeiner - there was a long row of waxes, removers and skin treatments all left behind by skiers who were flying home and unable to take these flammable products onto the plane. I'm not sure what the answer is to this situation, and it's not like the vast majority of skiers are flying all over the place BUT, it sure cramps the style of those who do! With the MWC being in Canada this winter, that's a lot of Europeans flying over here and needing to access wax supplies when they arrive.
in our ski waxes. We have full lines of liquid waxes and gel waxes, neither of which use petroleum. The key difference between our liquid wax and our gel wax, is the liquid wax uses alcohol as the delivery agent, while the gel is a solution in water.
We have fluorinated options and non-fluorinated options available for both. The Fluorinated waxes will have Fluor in the name, and the non-fluor will be under the name RG, or notinclude Fluor in the name. Application is straightforward. Begin by saturating the sponge on the tip of the bottle and applying a thin, even layer of liquid to a clean ski. Follow that up with a natural cork, and finish with a white nylon brush. There's no waiting around with our waxes. After application, the skis are ready to go in under 5 minutes.
