GRINDrite Stone Grinder

Stone grinding flattens the ski base, removes burnt and damaged base material and provides important micro-structure.

Bottom line, it makes your gear faster and easier to wax. A stone grind can put a stucture in your skis or board that is appropriate for the snow conditions, allowing you to ride faster.

The Hotbox

The ultimate in ski waxing. Wax is generously applied to the base and the skis are then placed into a heated storage box for 4-6 hours.

While a hot iron wax uses heat to drive wax into the top layer of the ski, the hot box fully satuarates the base with wax. A necessity for racers to be competitive. A hot box wax lasts up to 3x longer, you will definitely notice the increase in speed.
