Fluorine-free on the slope: new wax range from HOLMENKOL
Whether professional or part-time: manufacturer HOLMENKOL now makes environmentally friendly waxing possible for all skiers
Sustainability begins in the small things, the details. Just like the perfect skiing enjoyment. HOLMENKOL shows where both begin: the ski wax. It forms the basis for the best times on the slopes, for fun AND for responsibility towards nature. For winter 2021/22, the company presents the FF series, a completely fluorine-free wax for competitive sportspeople and ambitious athletes. The only right step for HOLMENKOL, the world’s first eco-certified ski wax manufacturer.
A wax must provide skiers with optimal support. It must make the difference. In every respect. With the right wax, the ski offers the perfect experience on the descent. At the same time, however, it must make its contribution to the protection of the environment – at least for ski wax manufacturer HOLMENKOL. “To us, sustainability is not just a word,” stresses Business Director Timo Fleischmann. “It is THE topic for us; it has been for a long time and is even more so now.”
FF ski wax range: top performance completely without fluorine
FF: The name stands for Fluorine Free, “Or for fast and furious – that would also fit very well, at any rate,” says Timo Fleischmann. For behind the new FF ski wax range is high tech for speed and top performance on the slope – completely without fluorine.
Professional athletes have already spent two years testing the FF series at the Ski World Cup. Their feedback went directly into the development of the products. The six liquid waxes and five fluorine-free paraffin waxes are the result of the Syntec project, the development of the company’s own raw materials and top products at its in-house laboratory and in close cooperation with professionals. The waxes can be grouped into two categories: SYNTEC ff1 liquid waxes for racing consist of three high performance liquid waxes for different weather conditions and are ideal as a finish before the start of the race. Ambitious athletes will find the right products among the SYNTEC ff2 liquid waxes: also three performance liquid waxes for various temperatures. They offer maximum performance with an uncomplicated finish.
