If you are a seasoned snowboarder, you’ll recognise how important waxing your board is. Snowboard wax kits are crucial as waxing your board can help you to improve your speed and friction when you are on the slopes. It can also help to improve the lifespan of your snowboard by allowing you to work out any minor imperfections and keep it looking its best.Table could not be displayed.
What to look for in a Snowboard Wax Kit
Most wax kits will have wax that needs to be melted onto your board using a wax iron. Some kits come with a wax iron, others don’t, but these can always be purchased separately.
Other useful things to look for in wax kits are cleaners, to help you get rid of all the old wax and dirt etc, off your board, before you apply your fresh wax. Scrapers are also important. Once you’ve applied your wax, you should scrape it off your board, until it looks like you’ve scraped it all off – it soaks into the pores of the board, so there will definitely be plenty on there! Other useful products include brushes and microfibre towels.
