Mixing hard wax and klister together is nothing new, but the results can often be far too variable to utilize. Ski waxers who have discovered the few pre-mixes have been delighted as the outcomes are now predictable and repeatable. More importantly, with global warming many ski areas are now dealing with challenging snow conditions never before encountered and now proving to be ever more common, such as aged, man-made, or heavy glaze. Star BETA kick waxes are some remarkable new entries into this arena, and if used appropriately can make a day's skiing change from a nightmare to a transcendent dream.

Great by itself, but test by adding thin layers
A fantastic cushion layer under harder grip waxes
