Product Description

The Swix F4 wax has been a staple in our ski packs for years, waxing fishscale bases, smooth base skis that are sticking, and climbing skins with snow buildup. I also use F4 at times on the top of the skis and in the bindings to reduce snow sticking and buildup.

Snow gets very sticky/clumpy when it goes from cold to warm, right around freezing. This is good snowman snow…. but it is sticky on ski bases and skin material.  This can happen with new snow that is warming due to the temperature rising to at or above freezing and it is also found (especially) in the spring when cold new snow gets warmed by  spring sun or one skis from a north facing aspect (cold) to an south facing aspect (warm).

The F4 works well in the field as it can be put on both base and skin material, allowed to dry for a few minutes and you are good to go. Swix also makes a round tin that is nice to carry, but it is 40ml for the same price as these, which are 75ml.

This wax needs very little to be effective, just enough to darken the ptex or skin. When applying to the skin part of the base (that would be the “fur”)apply it with the nap or diagonally. Do not rub or apply the wax against the direction of the fur (tail to tip).

Make sure you keep the top on between uses so it does not leak.
