How to race wax for cold conditions with best results

How to race wax for cold conditions with best results

1/31/2023 - By Ian Harvey

Many people think that if the snow is especially cold or abrasive then this is when they should use X-Cold Powder. While this might work much of the time, I wanted to make clear when X-Cold Powder is the most effective.

Soelden 15 is a test wax (a non fluorinated top coat) that did extremely well in testing two weeks ago so I contacted our chemist and he flew some out to me for the races.
