Swix - Hardwax V-Wax


Swix has been making ski wax and accessories since 1946.

Hardwax (otherwise known as Kick Wax) is intended for Nordic Skis. The color coding of waxes with Red for warm, Green for cold and Blue for “normal” winter conditions was invented by Swix and set the industry standard that is still used today.

We carry the following colour coded hardwax

  • V05 Polar Hardwax -12/-25C

    As the name indicates, this is hardwax made for the coldest conditions. Frequently used in the polar regions of Europe and North America.

  • V20 Green Hardwax-8/-15C

    The well known cold snow wax, used for more than fifty years, has been modernized several times with new components.

  • V30 Blue Hardwax -2/-10C

    Another truly classic Swix wax. To be used on moderate cold snow when skiing is at its best.

  • V45 Violet Spec. Hardwax 0/-3C

    A very frequently used wax, both in racing and touring. When Blue Extra becomes somewhat slippery, a thin layer of Violet Special probably is the right wax.

  • V55 Red Special Hardwax 0/+1C

    For moist new snow up to +1°C (34°F) and down to -2°C (28°F) in older more transformed granular snow.

  • V60 Red/Silver Hardwax 0/+3C

    For wet new snow up +3°C (38°F) and down to -1°C (30°F) in older more transformed granular snow. Apply thicker the warmer it is to secure grip.
