Why choosing fluorine klister?
The fluorine agent added in the formula of this grip wax limits the friction effect by evacuating the moisture contained in the snow quickly. This significantly improves the quality of your gliding phases and consequently helps you save up a lot of energy during races. Their grip quality is the same as their fluorine-free counterparts.
The choice of wax is exactly the same with each color matching an operating temperature range. As you know, it is always good to have a thermometer on hand to make the right decision.
How should I use it?
Fluorine klisters are designed for wet and transformed snows. Snow crystals become round after a mild spell and a rise in temperature. Klisters are generally used on wet snows, frozen in the morning, and that transform in round grains as the sun shows up.
Regarding waxing, nothing changes but do not forget to prepare your waxing chamber beforehand with sandpaper.
Then, apply the wax all along the zone intended for this purpose all while avoiding the central groove. Using a heat gun or a blowtorch, heat the wax to make its levelling easier. To make sure that your waxing lasts over time, repeat this operation at least two or three times.
We also have a tutorial for you in our "Tutorial" section. Written by one of our specialists, it will give you all the information you need to get your grip waxing right.
The Simon Fourcade Nørdic tip:
If you try to level the fluor klister using your hand, you will soon notice how hard it is to get rid of this sticky texture. Wash your hands with moisturizing cream and you won't risk staining your cross-country ski clothing. To make the waxing easier when it's cold, it is possible to heat up the tube with a heat gun or a blowtorch to liquefy the klister and facilitate its installation on the waxing chamber..
