Long Distance Racing, with ULL*A

Long Distance Racing, with ULL*A

ULL*A Wax Tips for 30 to 90 km races

 

ULL*A Waxes get faster into distance; so we're here to help you monopolize on that with 5 tips to making the most of your wax routine, and getting you across the finish in record time.

 

TIP 1: Clean your skis well with ULL*A Cleaner/Conditioner

Always be sure to start every long distance wax with a clean, blank canvas for best application results.

 

TIP 2: You're only as good as your base layer

Set a good base layer. Our favourites for long distance are ULL*A Glide Wax in Red and Red Black.

 

TIP 3: Layer up

When going from A to B in changing snow conditions, we suggest layering your ULL*A Wax application, starting with the fastest wax and building up. The first wax you apply will take you through the end of the race, so choose wisely! Take a look at our wax chart for support, or join our ULL*A Race Service Facebook Page for personalize advice from our team.
