Swix VR Kick Wax
The Swix VR-waxes are fluorinated and made for top racing, but have also proved interesting for Recreational and Sport skiers because of excellent properties, particularly around 0°C (32°F).
These hardwaxes are characterized by a high degree of flexibility, good kick and a minimum of glide friction. Each VR-wax has two specified temperature ranges, one for falling and new fallen snow, characterized by sharp snow crystals with relatively strong penetration capacity, and one range for older snow, when the crystals are rounded off and have less penetration power.
Swix VR-55 kick wax was born out of World Cup demand. Tested and used at World Cup Competitions and the Utah Olympic Games. For slightly moist new snow around freezing, and for older transformed snow below freezing. It gives excellent kick without sacrificing glide.
· New fallen snow +2ºC to 0ºC (36ºF to 32ºF)
· Transformed fine grained snow 0ºC to -3ºC (32ºF to 27ºF)
