    TOKO NF WAX

    I went to the shop trying to buy a box of toko non fluor wax white.
    Toko changed there line i did not want to ask what is what cause they usually dont know... i am better of here.

    i want to use it for my touring skis.

    i red on wikipedia fluor waxes are prohibited by next year.

    what do i need to buy from there new line? are all new waxes environment friendly and no fluor??

    With the ban on Fluro they have made their line super simple:
    All in one/All around $16/120g. Only White, one general temp.
    Base Performance/Training $22/120g Green, Blue, Red, Yellow. Choose as per temperature.
    Performance/Racing $50/120g (Black dirty or old snow), Blue, Red, Yellow
    High Performance/Word Cup Racing $148/120g Blue, Red, Yellow (Green Special to mix w Blue for cold and fast).

    No more High Fluor, Low Fluor, Non Fluro,

    SWIX has also gone fluro free.
    Cheapest is:
    U60-Universal wax - white
    UR 6,8,10- Racing in Blue, Red Yellow, color/Temp options.
    There is some cheaper BP -base prep/travel/storage wax in between
    Their higher end stuff Is the CH line:
    CH 4,5,6,7,810

    Fluro wax can no longer be produced or shipped to the USA.
    This does not mean retailers still don’t have old stock on the shelves to still sell.
    It will be interesting to see how it is managed/policed in the ski race world.

    downhill results from the ski world champions 1987


    the swiss time used fluro first and where the only ones at the race : ) the austrian trainer got a hint as always on the skicircus there is alot of blablabla : D everybody laughed about him

    same in olympics at salt lake city when only certain guys where supplied with helx

    professional sport is only about cheating

    btw thanks for the imput bought allinone white already today!

    Yeah, non-fluoro will be "friendlier" but I'm not convinced it will be faster. Stockpiling 900 gm bars of LF8 and LF7 just in case.

    last year was the first time for me to use nf on purpose!
    red hear it is better for touring skis and the skinglue so i changed my waxing.
    never had skinglue problems before but still age and knowledge and hairsplitting

    always wondered if the smell of wax is harmful to me. guess yes.

    so we will see wich wax will be the fastest-friendliest wax in the future.
    i thought of a stock then i was like naaa fuck it. let others be faster : )
    the skiers with the most fun is the best

    which is why I don't get the fuss about the Astros stealing signs. Stealing signs, doctoring the ball or the bat and getting away with it is part of the skill set of baseball. Same with deflating footballs. I draw the line at PEDs

    i have the perfect coverup agent. they should rub the sidewalls with nepalese temple balls.
    would drive the dogs nuts. just travelling overseas could become a pain in the ass

    or rub the sidewalls of the non fluro waxed skies with bacon : D
