Zions Bank 2018 Boulder Mountain Tour - FINAL RECOMMENDATION
Glide wax recommendations
Base Layer - Marathon White, iron in at 150C, let cool, scrape and brush out with Steel/Bronze Brush.
HF Layer - HF7X, iron in at 140C, let cool, scrape and brush out with Steel/Bronze Brush.
Cera F Layer - FC8X Cera F Powder. Apply powder and iron in at 165C. Let cool, scrape lightly and brush out with Wild Boar/Horsehair Brush.
Note, FC8XS Warm Turbo Block can be used as a substitute for FC8X Cera F Powder. Apply and rotofleece in, brush out with Wild Boar/Horsehair Brush. However, FC8X Cera F Powder will be more durable and last longer. It is 32k of racing after all!
Top Coat Layer - HVC Warm Liquid. Apply and let dry. Swix recommends doing this the morning of the race, especially if there is new snow that is warm and wet. If the snow is dry, test the HVC Warm Liquid on warm up skis before applying to race skis.
