New World Cup racing wax thanks to SYNTEC research project
HOLMENKOL presents seven new SYNTEC products

It is now four years ago that the idea for the research and development project SYNTEC was born. The first six waxes resulting from this project went on the market in the 2016/17 winter season – providing the basis for HOLMENKOL to continue developing application of the new synthesis technology. Now the tradition-steeped company based in Ludwigsburg presents SYNTEC WorldCup HF. For the first time, this novel highly fluorinated synthesis racing wax can be used not just by ski racing professionals but is also available for keen leisure athletes to purchase in retail outlets.

Unique ski waxes – "made in Germany"
For some years now, HOLMENKOL's synthesis technology has set a new benchmark in the research and development of ski waxes.
With its SYNTEC project, HOLMENKOL has improved the structural properties of the raw materials so as to produce unique and even more high-performance "made in Germany" ski waxes.
In exclusive collaboration with research institutions, universities and testing teams, properties such as the friction and yield of new SYNTEC ingredients in formulas are subjected to intensive testing – this is the key to success as far as the tradition-steeped company is concerned. Winter athletes and skiing teams from more than 40 countries place their trust in these unique ski waxes.
After all, the novel synthesis technology enables a hitherto unsurpassed level of performance, offering as yet unrivalled acceleration, speed and abrasion resistance. Whether ski jumping, Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing or biathlon – HOLMENKOL products claim victories at all the major winter sports contests.

This highly fluorinated synthesis racing wax puts maximum speed, optimum anti-friction and absolute abrasion resistance onto the piste. Whether fine, coarse or wet snow, cold or warm winter weather: this highly successful World Cup wax allows skis to run smoothly in all conditions. HOLMENKOL has three product
types in its range to meet these differing requirements.
