Looking for a wax specific to training sessions and long tours?
LF wax belongs to waxes containing fluorine. Its composition allows it to perform more than a CH wax in wet snow. Containing a little amount of fluorine, LF waxes are often used for trainings of long races when gliding is very important.
Made with fluorine, the LF wax reduces the friction between the sole and the snow by evacuating moisture quickly. However, fluorine is bad for the sole on the long-term and you should use it sparingly. Being only lightly fluorinated, the LF wax offers a very-enjoyable glide for trainings or long outings. Each brand has a range with wax of different colors, each color corresponding to a different operating temperature range. Be sure to look at the snow temperature to select the right wax for your day's ride, keeping a thermometer in your waxing drawer could prove very useful.
How do I use my nordic ski LF wax?
The LF wax is a glide wax, it is applied on the ski part that was made for this purpose. On skating skis, it means the whole sole and on classics, only the front and rear of the wax chamber.
How to apply the LF wax? Like all glide wax, the LF is applied hot. This means that you will need a waxing iron to set on the right melting temperature of your wax, a grooved scraper and a plastic one in order to scrape off the wax layer once it's cold and then some brushes to peel away the last paraffin residues.
