Superior wax for superior performance
Glide-on® is a Colorado-based company founded in 2006 by Lin Alicia Martin. While working as a chemist, Lin was shown three unique formulas for ski and snowboard glide wax (Warm, Medium and Cold). They were made of microcrystalline and paraffin waxes, plus a special ingredient that acts as a plasticizer. These wax formulas were thought to be superior to standard hydrocarbon waxes, so she had her friends and co-workers field test them. They reported that the wax formulas did indeed out-perform other hydrocarbon waxes on the market. Thus, Glide-on was born.
Lin has discovered that the plasticizer makes the difference. It gives Glide-on Wax more elasticity, durability, and speed without adding toxic chemicals. The plasticizer allows the microcrystalline content to be high, which makes the wax hard yet prevents it from being brittle. Through years of testing, Lin has perfected her formulas. She has since added a 4th formula, “Arctic”, for extreme colder temperatures and icy conditions, plus an addictive “Graphite” for all temperatures and conditions, and ideal on powder days.
“I would like to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to the improvement and expansion of Glide-on Wax. I am forever grateful, thank you!” — Lin Alicia Martin (owner and creator of Glide-on Wax)
