NANOWAX CERAX - Advantages Over Conventional Ski Waxes

- By: Matthias Ahrens

Conventional Wax
  • Low number of contact points with the ski base
  • Islands of fluorination
  • Durability based on hardness

  • High number of contact points with the ski base
  • Homogenuos concentration of fluor
  • Superior Durability in all conditions

Conventional Wax
  • Leaves deposits on the ski base

  • The structure remains free, therefore the ski glides better
NANOWAX CERAX products are matched to different snow conditions, not to temperature and are available in a training or high fluor racing PRO version. An easy and quick application will save you time and money.
