From Dane Stephenson of SWIX
The BMT is coming up this weekend and we’re getting several early requests for the wax report. Ian Harvey sent out a Toko report earlier that was spot-on so here’s the Swix report from our crew.
Good news: it will be VERY easy waxing conditions for the race this year so, as always, encourage your customers to keep it simple. General rule is to wax a bit colder for the race both for durability over the distance as well as regional conditions. With a bit of new snow in the forecast the humidity does get pretty high so fluros will help expand the sweet spot.
NOTE: With the new requirements focused on how wax ingredients are regulated/classified for import to the US there is a shortage of waxes from the top brands (Swix & Toko specifically). While it’s not the end of the world it is frustrating. The top brands are doing what’s right and jumping throughthe entire review process but that is taking way more time than expected. As products are released we will keep you updated.
Jason Jablonski will be representing Swix and Doug Reid will be with Madshus at the Packet Pick Up on Friday in Ketchum and answer questions you may have. PLEASE join us for the FREE Demo at Sun Valley Nordic on Sunday.
We will have a full fleet of Swix Quantum poles and Doug will have The Madshus IGS Skis which are literally THE Skin-Ski to have and WAY ahead of every other brand out there…. jump on a pair and discover why these are outselling everything.
