The Phantom Permanent Waxer:

New to the Ken Jones Tune Shop for the 2019-2020 winter season is the Phantom permanent wax system. The Phantom is a process developed by M.I.T students and owed by the ski company DPS out of Salt Lake City. First, the ski is treated with a special blend of chemicals and allowed to sit for a little while. Next, the ski sits in the UV light producing Phantom "Tanning Bed", as we have nicknamed it, for about 30 minutes. During this time the UV light reacts with the base and the chemicals to hydrate the entire base top to bottom.  As you tune the ski new layers of hydrated base is exposed keeping your ski fast for its entire life. The waxing process of the future is here!

The Wintersteiger difference:

Precision and top-class performance is what has made Wintersteiger the world market leader in tuning equipment. Professional edge grinding ensures uncompromising grip even in icy conditions. A Wintersteiger tune ensures easier turning and gliding, providing an optimally structured base creating the perfect "turning moment."

Why Tuning Matters:

Ski Magazine Tip #11 "Tuning Matters:" Even a novice can appreciate a freshly tuned ski. And even if you don't hit any rocks, normal skiing degrades a tune to the point of drastic reduction in performance after five or six days.
