What is Instant Glide made of?
We would love to tell everybody, but as this is our secret formula, you can understand we aren’t able to. But we can assure you that it works. If you really want to find out more, email us!
Why is Instant Glide better than wax?
Instant Glide out-performs wax in every way:
- Glides at least as fast as waxes even after days of skiing
- Great in wet snow or slush: don’t go home early anymore because the conditions have got worse, Instant Glide will help you through the toughest conditions
- Use it on waxed skis/boards, rented gear or even better on unwaxed skis or snowboards
- 100% eco-friendly – Instant Glide contains no toxic products at all
- Just spray on and ski off. No tools required – everybody can do this
Instant Glide seems such a miracle product, are there any disadvantages?
The only complaint that we regularly receive is purely visual: when you use Instant Glide, your ski bases may look grey. That’s because the last of the wax is wearing out. Typically, this indicates that skis need re-waxing, but this isn’t the case with Instant Glide.
Because Instant Glide is a pure product, it has no colour so doesn’t always keep bases looking dark and shiny, but it’s still in there working for you!
Once people realise that it’s not how they look that counts, they are always happy and just enjoy the feeling of perfect equipment.
How much Instant Glide do I need?
You only need a light spray over your skis or snowboard.
If your equipment has wax on it, some of the Instant Glide will wear off with the wax, so if performance drops off a little, simply re-apply with another light spray and you’re good to go again!
How many treatments can I get from my bottle?
There is obviously a link between the number of applications and the physical size of the skis or snowboard being treated but, taking a pair of 1.70m all-mountain skis or a 1.60m board as examples, you should easily be able to treat them a 5 times.
Lightly spraying then wiping with a thin cloth can help too.
The other option is to treat multiple pairs – so apply it to your whole family’s skis a couple of times.
How long does Instant Glide last in the bottle?
It will last a couple of years in the metal bottle.
Does Instant Glide also works for Nordic (cross-country) skiing?
Yes, it works great for Nordic skiing. Unlike typical waxes, which are extremely specific to temperature ranges, Instant Glide works across all temperatures and conditions. It’s a single product that does everything!
Also, as fluor wax will be banished in Nordic skiing soon because of the health and environmental issues, Instant Glide is a great alternative.
