The V-Line of hardwaxes is the traditional line of hard kick-waxes made for racing and recreational skiing. Although they do not have any fluorine additives, their quality is very high due to fully refined petroleum waxes, synthetic rubbers and pharmaceutical quality oils. The V-waxes, in certain the cold-snow waxes, are frequently used in top racing, alone or in combination with VR-waxes.
V5 Polar-New fallen snow -12°C to -25°C (10°F to -12°F). Old fine grained snow -15°C to -30°C (5°F to -22°F). As the name indicates, this is hardwax made for the coldest conditions.
V20 Green- New fallen snow -8°C to -15°C (18°F to 5°F). Old fine grained snow -10°C to -18°C (14°F to 0°F). The well known cold snow wax, used for more than fifty years, has been modernized several times with new components.
