It really shines when used lightly 2 to 4 times to open the base structure after the horsehair brush has been used, or on very hard (colder) waxes such as Ski*go C380 or LF Green.

Nordic Wax Benches/Profiles

portable wax profile

Steel Portable Ski Profile
This profile consist of two ends and a middle. The middle has the wire loop that mimics a Solomon or NNN boot toe to lock into the binding to keep the ski secure; as a bonus this leaves the sidewalls clear of any obstructions when waxing and rilling. The two ends are easily placed to match the length of all skis. Further the ends can be rotated into three different positions to match your needs even further. Unlike other wax benches the three parts do not need to all be on the same surface even! Top surface of each end is covered with a non-slip surface to help keep the ski in place. Will handle nordic skis with Solomon/NNN bindings of all widths from all ski manufacturers with length from 140cm and up. Each will easily fit into a wax box or a small pack. This profile is very solid and sturdy because it is made of steel. Naturally heavier than aluminum models, but skis shift less and and the binding clamp accomodates thicker surfaces. Shown below is a portable profile with a small (140cm) kid's ski.

wax bench with legs

Wax Bench with Legs This wonderful portable bench with legs is very sturdy. The steel legs and frame means less shifting as you are waxing, scraping or rilling. Skis with either a NNN or Salomon binding connect at the middle of the bench. The two aluminum stays of the profile can be adjusted to match the length of the ski. Each stay has a rubber surface to prevent the ski slipping and rubber caps on the end of each leg. Each leg can be removed (by taking off e-clips). This item ships as Expedited Post to be cost effective (i.e. costs less) and will take an extra 1 or 2 days to arrive.
NEW: for the 2011/12 benches the clip to hold the ski to the bench now has a quick release mechanism (like a bicycle wheel) allowing for height adjustment. This helps with shorter skis (<140cm). Also helps with the new Solomon Propulse binding with the very long closing arm because the clip can be completely removed, attached to the ski and then quick clamped back to the bench.
Colour is semi-gloss black for 2011/12 this season (as shown above).
Also available as a double bench (in colour black) with a small table area between the two profiles.
